Making a difference

In collaboration with the London Connected Learning Centre, we’ve challenged a group of primary schools to research and create videos about someone buried or memorialised in Westminster Abbey, whose words or actions made a difference. Check out their creative responses, looking at the person’s life and legacy.

Memorials of the future

We asked primary pupils to design a memorial for someone who has made a difference, who deserves to be remembered at Westminster Abbey. They might be famous or someone less well known. Here are a sample of the memorials of the future created by KS2 pupils.
