Motte and Bailey Castles

Motte and Bailey Castles

Some prior knowledge of castles is required for this lesson to work effectively. I completed this lesson for an observation and received an outstanding. Complete the knowledge builder by allowing students to guess the answer based on the first, second or third clue. When they have guessed they cannot change their answer i.e. guess on the first clue for three points and then they realise they have it wrong on the third clue - they cannot change. This is then followed by castle an exercise where the castles key features are incorrectly identified - students have to correct the error. The lesson features both starter and plenary as well as Emerging, Developed, Secured and Mastered lesson objectives.

Edexcel CRIME and ANGLO SAXON 1-9 Walk and Talk Mocks with Therapy.

Edexcel CRIME and ANGLO SAXON 1-9 Walk and Talk Mocks with Therapy.

I made this resource for my GCSE Groups and used it alongside the PiXL Smith Pro-Forma generator. If you dont have access to PiXL this still worked really well. Stage 1: Set the Exam. Students sit the examination as a formal mock exam. Stage 2: Mark the exams but not in detail. Use the included marking spreadsheet (which can be used to upload to PiXL if you have access) to RAG each question for each student. You then issue them with the therapy that matches there need. Stage 3: Issue and complete the therapy documents. Stage 4: Re-Sit the exam question which they have completed the therapy for. Stage 5: Revel in the improved outcome of your learners.
