The Battle of Hastings
  • The aim of this lesson is for students to analyse and evaluate the tactics used in the Battle of Hastings which eventually allowed William to win. Students commence by analysing Bayeux Tapestry, sources of the battle and information on the leadership qualities of the two combatants. They then complete a differentiated task on the events of the battle before completing a summarising pyramid on William’s skills. There is also a chance to recreate the battle with suggestions of role play before the plenary requires some recall and retention skills. An optional homework suggestion is also provided.
  • The resource is therefore differentiated and gives suggested teaching strategies. It comes in PDF and Powerpoint format which can be amended and changed to suit.
