Early English Kings Wordsearch History Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Early English Kings Wordsearch History Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Early English Kings'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Afternoon of history and art to end the year

Afternoon of history and art to end the year

A fantastic spoken lesson leading into art and (potentially) written reflection after! First part of the lesson is a partner-talk then whole class discussion on the year: what has been the highlights? What has stood out? Scribe it all down then start the slideshow. Using images from the past such as cave painting, the Bayeux tapestry and Japanese woodblock art, the class discuss great works of art and historical artifacts before looking at the artwork of Keith Haring. Using his trademark style, the children then make their own large Bayeux tapestry posters depicting their year.
