The Magna Carta and the laws of the land.

By 31

After looking at local government in Barnsley, we will begin to look at how modern central government began all those years ago in Runnymede in 1215.

What can you tell me about the Magna Carta and how it changed England forever?

The Magna Carta was a charter agreed by King John of England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 at Runnymede ,near Windsor, on 15 of June 1215.
First drafted by the Archbishop of Canterbury to make peace between an unpopular king and a group of rebel barons ,it promised the protection of church ⛪ rights . After John’s death,the regency government of his young son,Henry|||, reissued the document in 1216.
The Magna carter today has kept only 3 of its rules:

1. That the English Church shall be free from royal interference.

13. To respect the rights and freedoms of the City of London and other towns and ports.

39. That no freeman shall be arrested or imprisoned without a proper trial.

King John wrote the Magna Carta and the laws and signed it so the life would be fairer. So from that day on England has changed just a little bit. There are three copies left and they are kept in a water proof , fire proof and a brake in proof because if some one wanted to brake in because they are priceless. I loved this lesson I can not what for the up coming week xxx

The king was cruel and could do what ever he wanted . One day he signed a paper for the first ever laws in England. Three of those laws still last today .

I am glad that King John agreed to make laws because if he didn’t the world would be a different place where bad things would happen because there would be no law to separate the bad things and the good things.

the Magna Carta is important because they were the first ever rules in the country and there are 3 rules that are still around to this day and they are…

1.That the English church shall be free from royal interference. ⛪
2.To respect the rights and freedoms of the city of London and other towns and ports.
3.That no freeman shall be arrested or imprisoned without a proper trial.

King John really wrote 63 rules but we dont have them any more.
Thanks Mr Rob for teaching us that👍

9. The only copy in private hands was sold at auction in 2007 for $21.3 million [ over 10 million ].

4. In modern English translation it has 4,922words .

I think King John was a horrible King but after he signed the Magna Carta he changed a bit but he was still unkind.

Alexander on 22 November, 2017

The Magna Carta changed England forever because it was the first ever set of laws. It was created by the barons who were unhappy with cruel king John.It was intended to give the barons rights while still allowing king john to raise taxes.Unfortunately it didn’t help the peasants who were not free men.The Magna Carta was reissued several times over the 13th century to keep peace before it became part of English Law.

King John was a horrible man he signed the Magna Carta drafted by the arch bishop of Canterbury to try and make peace between himself and the church .

Jak on 24 November, 2017

I think that King John was actually nice because he signed the Magna Carta and changed the world.

charlie on 24 November, 2017

The purpose of the Magna Carta was a peace treaty, a law agreed by king John of England on 15 of June 1215. To make peace, protect church rights, illegal imprisonment.

King John was a heavy handed ruler of England and the people had to pay heavy taxes . The Magna Carta agreed by the King on 15.06.1215 meant for the first time everybody including the King was subject to the law meaning individuals had the right to justice and a fair trial .

Lilly on 26 November, 2017

King John was a horrible and terrible man and did whatever he wanted and didn’t care about anybody at all. He signed the magna carta laws so life would be fairer.From that day on England has changed.Three laws are still last today

1) That the English church shall be free from Royal interference.

2)To respect the rights and freedoms of the city of London and other
towns and ports .

King john was the king who signed the Magna Carta.
King john was a evill guy in my eyes but some people may think hes nice but he does hide evil behind his eyes.
The magna carter is the first laws that were made in history
they still have 3 rules from back in the days.
Here is one of them
That no freeman should be arrested inprisoned without a proper trial.

Without King John sinning the magna carta they would have been no laws today.

Charlie on 28 November, 2017

King John was a deadly man because he stole people gold coins and taxes went up a lot.

Thomas on 28 November, 2017

The Magna Carta was written in 1215 and it was a very important document. There are still three laws used today.
