This resource includes an assembly plan and 19 slide PowerPoint to use for Women's History Month or International Women's Day on 8th March. No further preparation needed. The assembly is suitable to use with KS2 or secondary aged children. The slideshow provides the opportunity to discuss why we might focus on women's history, before moving on to give details on how women's circumstances changed from ancient times to today. There are 10 slides which outline key achievements of 10 different women, from Marie Curie to J K Rowling. The plan gives details about how to use the slideshow. I like to lead assemblies that are interactive and relevant to the children's lives, so the plan gives plenty of opportunity for children to discuss ideas, give feedback and reflect. Updated for 2019.
This lesson focuses on the role of the Empire in WW1. Students will have a chance to look at some of the contributions from Indian, African, Australian etc. soldiers.

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.
This pack includes: 31 fact sheets for each topic needed for the Edexel 1-9 Crime and Punishment GCSE History Paper 1 unit. Each fact sheet can be copied into a revision booklet for students. The amount of detail is high but key points are highlighted throughout for weaker students. Also included are 4x revision diagrams for each period of the study and 4 x example exam question sheets with sample questions from Edexcel’s specimin and sample papers. This will make a perfect revision booklet for the students as I find the revision workbooks currently available seem to lack some detail in key areas. Information has been taken from both Hodder and Pearson books to keep a balance. Please be kind enough t leave a review if you find this pack useful. I am about to start a differentiated version of this content so watch this space.
This lesson explores what life was like for soldiers in the trenches. Students begin by studying images and determining what they think the images tell us about life in the trenches. There is also a short video available which aids the learning. Students look at the average day of a soldier in the trenches. Students then use a series of sources to uncover for themselves the different problems that existed in the trenches, ranging from trench foot, shell shock, the duties and threats, food etc. To finish, students may use a template to write a guided letter to a loved one explaining all the problems that exist. Exclaimer: Some of the activities in this lesson were adapted from IC History. However, all resources have been recreated myself, typed myself and changed for use in my own lesson. The sources sheet has been completely developed from scratch, using similar sources and images to IC History, but with some changed and adapted for my use.
This lesson focuses on the way that crimes were judged in the medieval period, including the use of early juries, the hue & cry, and the different trials of ordeal used, such as trial by fire, trial by water and trial by combat. The teacher can go through these on the board with the use a short video clip for each trial, or there is an optional table activity with information cards (could be a carousal as well) and students can complete in a table or there is an optional worksheet provided. Then, the lesson moves on to focus on punishments. These range from public punishment in the stocks etc. and also has an activity to learn about other methods, such as execution, scold’s bridle, amputation etc. Students can have a copy of a table of crimes committed and be asked to guess which punishment would fit the crime. The teacher has an answer’s slide to go through it. At the end, there is a written activity option to get students to either do a newspaper activity (instead of what’s on the slide) or a story about someone who was convicted and what happened to them at the trial and the punishment side of things. This lesson could easily be a double lesson if you want to make time for the literacy element, and students do enjoy getting creative with this. All videos used in this lesson are available to download (or watch straight) from the links provided.
