Henry VIII and English ReformationQuick View

Henry VIII and English Reformation

Complete notes (basically like a textbook) for AS students. It is written as a chronological account, building in key debates. The reason for chronological rather than thematic focus is because the course has been taught in discrete sections and this is designed to bring it all together. It is not the final, proofed draft and some of the footnoting still needs to be done, but I thought I would upload it in case anyone finds it useful for the imminent exams. I'll post a revised copy when it is complete.

Sport Leisure and Tourism 1900s History Scheme

This is a selection of lessons on the above title. They are quite old now and I found them on an old drive. Looking at them, there are still some good worksheets and some good links so they will make a springboard for further planning... but I think you'd want to adapt them, they&'re not ready to teach and need some updating! I no longer teach history at GCSE, so I thought I would share to see if they can help others.

Y8 SOW Unit 1 Is absolute power possible?

Half a term’s planning with resources. My y8 are investigating the theme of ‘power and protest’ this year (y7 is ‘lives of ordinary people’ and y9 is ‘conflict and resolution’ - these are the themes i have chosen in line with the new KS3 national programme of study). This is the introductory unit. so far my students are loving it. its not content heavy, as it allows for much discussion in class. am pursuing the ‘do less, more effectively’ concept with my planning this year!


A Timeline constructed by Tor Alexander Bruce over several months from research via Books, Websites, Discussions, Library visits and DVD-viewing. The resource is a multi-page Excel-spread sheet, stemming from what we currently regard as the birth of the Universe, through each stage of the evolution of the picture we regard as the natural world, through to educated-views of where our human desire to exhaust all natural resources may lead us and the co-inhabitants of Earth. The document was originally compiled as a War-Chart, to highlight the varying stages of man's inhumanity to man, but the research led to documenting everything from archaeological discoveries resulting in greater knowledge of human development, to detailed information relating to prehistoric-earth; world leadership through the ages and facts relating to the resources that have allowed the human species to develop in the way they have.
