I am a History Teacher with a love for producing high quality and easily accessible history lessons which I have accumulated and adapted for over 20 years of my teaching career. I appreciate just how time consuming teaching now is and the difficulty of constantly producing resources for an ever changing curriculum.

British sector of the Western Front Bundle

* I have created these set of resources for the GCSE 9-1 Edexcel Historic Environment for the British sector of the Western Front, 1914-1918. * The central question throughout these seven lessons is to find out how medicine developed throughout the conflict of World War 1. The lessons are closely linked together and address all the content required for this unit. * Pupils will learn about the injuries, treatment and life in the trenches for the soldiers. Key ideas include: * The historical context of medicine in the early twentieth century and the move to aseptic surgery. * The trench system and its construction and organisation. * The context of the British sector including Northern France and Flanders. * The problems with communications and infrastructure due to the nature of the terrain. * The nature of wounds received and the conditions requiring medical treatment. * The work of organisations such as RAMC and FANY. * The significance of the Western Front for experiments in surgery and new techniques used. The lessons are broken down into the following: * L1: Introduction and the trench system * L2: Flanders and Northern France * L3: Move to aseptic surgery (free lesson) * L4: Deadly weapons and injuries * L5: Trench warfare and the problems of transport * L6: Helping and treating the wounded * L7: GCSE exam question practise * Each lesson comes with suggested teaching and learning strategies and are linked to the latest historical interpretations and ideas used by current history teachers on twitter. * The lessons are fully adaptable in Powerpoint and can be changed to suit. I have included a free lesson to give an idea of what is being offered. * Please review the resource and receive a free World War 1 display which can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/world-war-1-display-11652267
