The Tudors: Elizabeth I 1558-1603 Bundle

The Tudors: Elizabeth I 1558-1603 Bundle

This bundle follows the Key Stage 3 National Curriculum - the development of Church, state and society in Britain 1509-1745 including the Elizabethan religious settlement and conflict with Catholics (including Scotland, Spain and Ireland). The aims of this bundle are to know and understand how peoples’ lives were shaped by Elizabeth, how she dealt with the threats to her rule and how her legacy lives on today as one of our greatest even Queens . Students will learn and understand key historical skills. These include historical concepts such as continuity and change with a focus on the Elizabethan Poor Law, the causes and consequences of the Elizabethan Settlement, similarities and differences in her portraits and the significance of exploration. The 11 lessons are broken down into the following: L1 The young Elizabeth L2 The Elizabethan Settlement (free resource) L3 Elizabeth and her favourites (free resource with a GCSE focus) L4 Elizabeth and the problem of marriage L5 Elizabeth and her portraits L6 How did Elizabeth deal with Mary, Queen of Scots?

The lessons are fully adaptable in PowerPoint format and can be changed to suit. I have included a couple of free lessons to give an idea of what is being offered. Although this bundle is aimed at Key Stage 3, it is ideal if you are studying Elizabeth I for 9-1 GCSE as it covers the main themes, concepts and skills required for the new specifications.

The Tudors: Elizabeth and the problems of marriage

The Tudors: Elizabeth and the problems of marriage

Elizabeth has some tough choices to make in this lesson. Who should she choose to marry if at all? Why was there so much pressure upon her to marry in the first place? Students prioritise the reasons for marriage on a grid before they analyse the potential suitors in Europe, complete with their availability and faults (on paper of course). The plenary focuses on a dinner date with all of them and students decide who Elizabeth would like to sit near the most and who would be placed at the far end of the table. 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 resources to deliver the lesson.

Samuel Pepys' diary entries - adapted for children

Samuel Pepys' diary entries - adapted for children

I adapted each of Samuel Pepys’ original diary entries (plus one of John Evelyn’s) into writing that my students would be able to understand and used them for whole class reading lessons. There is a diary entry plus literal & inference questions for each of the following dates: Sunday 2nd September 1666 Monday 3rd September 1666 Tuesday 4th September 1666 Wednesday 5th September 1666 Thursday 6th September 1666 Please note that although I have adapted the diary entries, they are still somewhat difficult to read because I kept as true to the original as I could. My high attaining Year 2 class was able to understand each of the entries and answer the literal and inference questions but my lower attaining students struggled. The original diary entries from 1666 can be found here: https://www.pepysdiary.com/diary/1666/09/02/

Great Fire of London - 11 week unit

Great Fire of London - 11 week unit

This is an 11 lesson unit of work on the Great Fire of London. There is a medium term plan and slides for every lesson and each lesson is focused on answering a question. I designed this for Year 2 but it could be adapted for older years if needed. These are the questions covered in the unit: L1: When did the Great Fire of London happen? L2: What was life in 17th century London like? L3: How did the fire start? L4: Why did the fire spread so quickly? L5: How do we know about the Great Fire now? L6: How did the rest of Britain learn about the Great Fire in 1666? L7: Who was Samuel Pepys? L8: What did Samuel Pepys see? L9: How did the Great Fire end? L10: What could have been done to end the fire sooner? L11: What happened after the Great Fire? I had originally planned to create a 12th lesson entitled “L12: What impact did the Great Fire have on modern-day London?” but I ran out of time to teach that lesson in the term.

The Tudors: Elizabethan Theatre and the Globe

The Tudors: Elizabethan Theatre and the Globe

The aims of this lesson are for students to recognise how theatres changed under Elizabeth from their early days as travelling performers with a poor reputation playing in pubs and fields to purpose built theatres such as the Globe paid for by wealthy Patrons such as the Earl of Leicester. Students know through their links to their English lessons quite a lot already about Shakespeare and this lesson taps into their knowledge and builds upon it with a thinking quilt to examine how the theatre developed. Furthermore there is a focus on Shakespeare’s plays and inspiration as well as an analysis of the Globe theatre. There is some excellent video footage to complement the learning tasks. This lesson is suited to both Key Stages 3 and 4. An exam question for GCSE practice (differentiated) on the significance of the Elizabethan theatre sets up the students for later learning and skills. The lesson finishes with an odd one out task which will revisit the aims of the lesson and how Tudor theatres still have an impact today. 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 resources to deliver the lesson.

NINE-USA CITIES

NINE-USA CITIES

This presentation can be used for children between the ages of 9 and sixteen. There are fifty five slides and thirty nine pages of additional resource materials. I have selected the following cities because of their contrasting site, situation and geographical locations. They are: Boston, New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New Orleans. This selection of cities offers extended studies in both Physical and Human Geography. Included in the slide notes and the resource file are suggested work challenges involving on line work, historical links, geographical writing skills, discussions and other map drawing exercises. The presentation can be targeted at nine and ten year old students but it will be necessary to use the shortened version of the script. Children between the age of eleven and fourteen should be able to cope well with most of the challenges. Key Stage 4 (fourteen to sixteen years) students involved in examinations will be able to link this resource with a large range of the exam topics. Some examples include: Boston and New York - Settlements, site, situation and geographical location. New Orleans - Flooding, Mississippi Drainage Basin, River features including deltas. Detroit - Industrial and population change. Chicago and Detroit - Location, Waterways and Trade, Glaciation and the Great Lakes. Los Angeles and San Francisco - Environmental Hazards and Tourism. Las Vegas - Desert environment, Water resources and the Entertainment Industry. Washington DC - Capital City, history, location, population, government and tourism. There are several IT challenges on offer that involve constructing a quiz word grid, following the course of the River Colorado by using on line maps, developing knowledge of site, situation and geographical location with a starting point in Downtown Chicago. The whole project is aimed at developing a wide range of geographical knowledge along with IT skills and the opportunity to improve writing techniques in preparation for higher level studies. I personally would use this resource for Year 9 groups in preparation for Key Stage 4 Geography. The History content makes it just that little bit more interesting.

The Archaeology of Ancient Greece

The Archaeology of Ancient Greece

Introduction to the project and teaching resources Within this folder you will find a series of documents about Ancient Greece with a focus on daily life and houses. All of these materials are designed for cross-curricula teaching and cover the English, History, Maths, Science, Geography, and Art subjects of the National Curriculum. Please do not feel that you have to use all of these files and the associated activities, as they may not all be appropriate for your teaching or timetable. The materials include both background information to the subjects covered, and actual teaching materials, including various activities. These resources were conceived together with the intention of providing teachers with all of the information they would need to teach a topic on daily life in Ancient Greece. Thus some of the activities will require you, as the teacher, to have engaged with all of the background materials within your planning, even if you do not use them directly in your lessons. For example, presentation 20, which provides information and activities for the Science curriculum on Vision and Light, requires you to have read about Greek houses and the family, which is found in presentations 05, 07-10 and 14. All of the teaching activities have been designed to support the students’ core knowledge and skills as outlined in the National Curriculum. For example, presentation 01 covers the topic of archaeology as a discipline, including what Classical archaeologists study, and where they undertake their excavations. Within this presentation (01) there are two specific activities on slides 3-6. The Kmz* file (02) (for use in Google Earth), and Presentations 03 and 04, extend this topic into Maths and Geography activities that can be done both in and outside the classroom. These activities may be followed by presentation 05, which focuses on the settlement (Olynthus) that provides the basis of many of the other presentations about specific issues regarding houses, daily life and the family in Ancient Greece. Presentation 06 is a LEGO Education activity that is linked to presentations 01 and 05, and develops students’ work in the English, Art and Design subjects of the National Curriculum.

What were the dangers faced during D-Day?

What were the dangers faced during D-Day?

The two objectives of this lessons are to emphasise the extreme dangers involved in the D-Day landings but also to introduce KS3 students to the new type of source utility questions at KS4 (focus on Edexcel “How useful is… for an enquiry into…” but can also work more generically for source evaluation in general). The starter is a WW2 prior knowledge quiz which reveals panels of a mystery image for students to guess. This quiz may need to be adapted depending upon students’ prior knowledge but the questions are quite standard causes/events of WW2. Students then use a fantastic 3 minute video to answer who, what, why, where when? questions about the event. To gain the necessary contextual knowledge to effectively evaluate the sources, they read a passage an highlight “Dangers faced by soldiers”. There is then an introduction to a source evaluation technique we call COP (content, own knowledge and provenance). Students evaluate the usefulness of a first-hand account of a landing on Omaha. They then write up their evaluation using a writing frame if required (SEN support). As an extension, students can try to apply the COP technique to a completely fresh photograph source. Alternatively, this extension activity makes a good homework. In the plenary, students hear some extracts from a high-level answer and have to idenify them as either content, own knowledge or provenance.

What was life like during the plague (17c)?

What was life like during the plague (17c)?

The lessons starts by testing the students’ prior knowledge of the plague from general knowledge or previous work on the Black Death. They then link the “Ring a Ring o’ Roses” nursery rhyme to the plague. After going through some key knowledge, students label a diagram of a plague doctor and consider which parts of his costume might actually have protected him. They then answer some comprehension questions on Samuel Pepy’s diary extracts to gain a sense of life at the time. The main activity is to create a public information poster to help citizens of London stay safe using only the knowledge available at the time. For the plenary, students consider how this poster would be different if they could have used modern-day knowledge.
