1066 LEARNING WORLD CODEX - Norman Invasion (with Online Learning World)


1066 and the aftermath of conquest - featuring a unique immersive interactive Learning World (free to play!). The Learning World feeds directly into the in class lesson activities and can be used as an ongoing homework project – students can complete the free codex booklet as they go to consolidate learning.

It is a very comprehensive SOW that covers the Norman conquest and its impact on English society. Each and every lesson has been made with enough differentiation, activity variety, cross-curricular support and progress checks that they could be used comfortably ‘out of the box’ in an observation lesson. Care has also been taken to make sure the skills complement each other across the SOW and build up to progress in exam writing ability, source analysis and soft skill development. I’m quite proud of it – if I may say so!

The first two lessons and the Learning World Codex are free to download (some of the slides are not editable in these free versions) but the remaining lessons are for sale and are fully editable.

Download the first two free lessons to see a detailed SOW breakdown or check out www.wolseyacademy.com to see all lessons and play the Learning World (for free!). I really hope you find this useful, I think it offers something a little different to students. If you like the Scheme of Work, please leave a review – and for every review left I’ll give you a free paid for resource from my TES Shop of your choice! So please do take the time!

From my experience it created a huge ‘buzz’ about learning in the classroom and I even had kids in other classes asking to use it. So soon the whole department were using it and at KS3 parent’s evening it was all the parents talked about – many of them had also played through the Learning World.

Note: The Learning World is a ‘beta’ version – I am currently looking for someone to upgrade the artwork to make a few things look more ‘Normany’. But I guarantee the pupils will love it.

All are available to download and purchase at www.wolseyacademy.com - which is also where you can find the Learning World.
I really hope you find these resources useful – and like I said, please do leave a review (and claim a free resource of your choice!)
