Card Sort: Why did William Conqueror win the Battle of Hastings in 1066?
This great little card sort is a must have for anyone studying why William won the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The resource in a word format so it can be fully adapted to suit your learners, but I have made sure that it's accessible for core, foundation and gifted and talented students.

This card sort can be used as a starter, mini plenary or plenary. It can also be used as a planning exercise before students attempt writing an extended essay for assessment purposes on the topic.

So in brief, I have provided a two page worksheet with the following heading of leadership / tactics. organisation, luck and Harold's mistakes as well 16 cards that students can sort under these headings.

The aims objectives are:

Theme: Why did William win the Battle of Hastings in 1066?
Know: What factors helped William to win?
Understand: How important was William's leadership, tactics, luck and organisation in helping to win?
Evaluate: How far did William win or Harold lose?

WILF - What an I Looking For?

Identify / describe: Why William won the Battle of Hastings?
Explain: Several reasons why William won the Battle of Hastings?
Analyse: Explain which factor was the most important reason why William won?

I have been observed several times with this lesson and have been graded outstanding each time. This is a high quality resource, which works. The students love the activity which never fails to help them develop a sophisticated understanding of why he won! However, don't take my word for it, download and try it!
