A bundle is a package of resources grouped together to teach a particular topic, or a series of lessons, in one place.


Norman Castles

These outstanding resources have been refined and carefully crafted to help students understand the critical role played by castles in help helping William keep control of England and how their design changed over time. When you purchase this bundle you will be able to download a series of lessons which look a how castle design changed from the Norman Conquest onwards. Each lesson focuses on why the Normans built castles and this is the subject for the first lesson. The next two lessons look at Motte & Bailey and Square Keep Castles. Students knowledge and understanding of the topic is then built on through lesson number four by getting them to write a persuasive formal letter explaining to a Norman Lord why he should replace his Motte & Bailey Castle with a stone Keep. This lesson should generate some impressive display work. The final lesson in the series is a market place activity which looks at how castle design changed over time. For more information, please click on the lessons to find out more. There is a good half terms worth of work in these lessons.


Back to School Basics

Thesegreat resources are a must have for every teacher starting back to school. They include an intervention log for your form, a seating planner and finally a literacy mat which can be laminated and placed on each table. If you are a HOD, I've also thrown in my faculty review sheet. Good luck with the new term and keep popping back to the History Academy for more good ideas. We don't knowing overprice anything, but we do focus on quality. If you have any issues then please get in touch. We don't sell anything more than the price of a good cup of coffee so if you decide to buy, thank you in advance!
