Why not explore our word of the day:



Delighting primary school audiences since 2014, Happily Ever After is a twist on a traditional fairy tale, that enables an exploration of same gender relationships and equal marriage for KS2 pupils. Based on the book ‘King and King’ by Linda De Haan and Stern Nijland, Happily Ever After started life as a play, and has now been made into a film, with wrap around educational resources.

The Queen is growing impatient. Her lazy son will never be king until he grows up, gets married and starts acting like one.

She invites hundreds of princesses from across the land, hoping to find the perfect bride for the prince, but he isn’t impressed by any of them.
