Witch Child by Celia Rees - loads of bits for exploring this fantastic novel

A complete range of lessons and worksheets to accompany teaching the fab historical/fictional novel ‘Witch Child’ by Celia Rees. For me, this book seemed to resonate most with my Yr 9 girls groups and they really enjoyed the range of activties including reading, writing and speaking and listening skills. There are some lessons shorter than others or have been deleted due to now irrelevant mark scheme/curriculum work (including APP). I hope you enjoy this selection and please feel free to review and look at my other resources as well. Many thanks

Your students will then complete a picture analysis that illustrates some of the corruption. My students love this lead- in to the unit!

AQA A Level: NEA Component 3: Witchcraft c.1560-1660, Depth Content - Lessons 11-18 bundle

These resources are for A Level AQA students studying the NEA (Non-Examined Assessment) Component 3. The coursework that I have designed for my students centres on witchcraft in Europe from 1560-1660. The course looks at the different causes of witch-hunting across Europe, mainly in England, Scotland and Germany. The notes will build up over the course to which students will answer a coursework question focusing on the causes of witch-hunting between 1560 and 1660. This year my students completed the question: “Within the context of the years 1560-1660, to what extent were socio-economic factors the main reason for the growth in witch-hunting persecutions in Europe?” This second section of the course is the depth study. Students will learn various depth case studies as to why witchcraft was caused in each instance. These case studies include the trial of Agnes Waterhouse, 1566; North Berwick witch hunts, 1590s; Pendle witch trials, 1612; Bamberg, Germany 16203 and 1630s; East Anglian witch-hunts, 1640s. The Hodder Education textbook by Alan Farmer called “Access to History: The Witchcraze of the 16th and 17th centuries” will be an essential textbook reference for these lessons.

The Tudors: Did Henry VIII break with Rome for money?

The Tudors: Did Henry VIII break with Rome for money?

This lesson sets out to question whether the reason that Henry broke from Rome all along was due to money. His expensive tastes, his wives, his need to build up his navy and coastal defences and to show Europe his prowess all took a toll on his bank balance. The monasteries with their wealth proved all too easy pickings for his Chancellor Thomas Cromwell in his Valour Ecclesiasticus. The lesson therefore builds up a picture of his need for money. Then students through some investigation will shockingly find many ‘abuses’ in the monasteries giving Henry the excuse to close them down and take their money for himself. Students then using their knowledge from previous lessons decide if he broke from Rome for love, faith or money. The resource comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change. I have also included suggested teaching strategies and differentiated materials to deliver the lesson.

Custom Books

Custom Books

Custom Books is a resource created for a project with children who were in KS2-KS3. The resource may be useful for local history studies and as a stimulus for children to create their own chap book about a topic of their choosing. The project was awarded National Lottery funding, through the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and as part of our agreement we said we would create and share this resource. Context Children became researchers, finding out about the history of The Customs House and chap books. Chap Books were an early type of book made from a folded piece of paper. We were helped by The Word (National Centre for the Written Word) in South Shields and the National Libraries of Scotland. The young people used their research to create their own book, working with a heritage-arts educator, sharing their history of The Customs House with our community. Content The resource includes: Our research into chap books using The Word; National Centre for the Written Word local history collection in South Shields and information from The National Library of Scotland. Pages from our chap book about the history of The Customs House in South Shields and it’s impact on the town.

Slave experience - 9 page lesson pack

Slave experience - 9 page lesson pack

In this lesson students work through background information before completing a card sort to show positives and the many negatives of slave life from getting off slave ships through to working on plantations. Students need to place the events in a chronology in order to recount a story of the conditions and place them on an emotional rollercoaster graph to show which conditions they felt were the most horrific and why. This is a powerful lesson which should be taught with great sensitivity and a flavour of which can be experienced in the video file attached.
