Normans - Motte and Bailey Castles

This lesson looks at how William controlled England using the Motte and Bailey Castle. This lesson will ask students to begin by seeing that their interpretations of a ‘castle’ is, then move on to discuss possible places a castle might be built and why. The students then read a short piece of text and use it to label a small cut-out of the Motte and Bailey and this leads nicely into a task that looks at the advantages and disadvantages of the castle. The students can also look at the potential effects this may have had on the Saxons by looking at a small video clip and discussing with the teacher.

Normans - Feudal System and Domesday Book

(1)
This lesson focuses on the role of the Feudal System of William the Conqueror and the gathering of information for the Domesday Book in controlling the people and land of England. Students first learn about the feudal system using a literacy handout and by drawing it in their books. There is an SEN friendly version that can be printed to make it easier. The students then develop an understanding of the Domesday book, why it was used and the potential effects it had. By the end of the lesson, students should begin to see how ‘peaceful’ methods and control of the land allowed William to maintain dominance. This works really well if you have taught a previous lesson on the use of the force by William, and can offset it nicely.

Medieval TownsQuick View
PilgrimHistoryPilgrimHistory

Medieval Towns

(1)
This lesson has two aims; to discover if medieval towns were dangerous places to live and to question how dirty and unhygienic they actually were. Students learn how Medieval towns grew up through Charters and Guilds and how shops and their names and surnames became intertwined. They analyse a number of statements about the dangers facing townsfolk and evidence this on a road map (or dirt track) using danger symbols and accompanying road signs. The second part of the lesson focuses on the filth and dirt of Medieval towns and questions how much the local authorities did. Students evaluate how hygienic towns were, colour coding thermometers and rating each step taken by the local authorities (or not as the case may be). This lesson is therefore designed to be interactive, fun, challenging and engaging and could be used over two lessons. The resource is differentiated and gives suggested teaching strategies. It comes in PDF and Powerpoint format which can be amended and changed to suit. If you like this resource please review it and receive a free Life under the Normans Key Word History display worth £2.50 which can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/life-under-the-normans-display-11653218
