Ancient Greeks - Battle of Marathon / Persian wars Lesson KS2
Stand alone lesson (part of series also available for download individually or as a set at reduced price). This lesson uses 'Marathon' as a hook and shares various facts about Greek warfare with the Persians, with links and leads on to the task - writing a news report about the Battle of Marathon. Includes a lesson plan and a notebook file for leading the pupils through the learning.

The whole series is tested and written by an experienced teacher with experience of leading teaching and learning in numerous schools, as an advisor and judged outstanding over many years. Still a practicing classroom teacher! :)

Sharing resources to help reduce planning time for those who still want good quality resources that support the New Curriculum, literacy skills and all levels of learners.
