459 children from 31 mainly local schools submitted work to compete for a place in a Magna Carta anniversary exhibition. Pupils up to year 4 drew their own shields whilst learning a little about heraldry; pupils from year 5 and above devised their own modern Magna Carta having studied the original. Shields atop the exhibition boards display the Coats of Arms of the Barons present at Runnymede in 1215.
