All our resources have been designed and written to a high standard and fine tuned in the classroom. Our goal is to share best practice at an affordable price so that you can spend time focusing on your own priorities. During my 30 years in the classroom, I have published resources for Heinemann, Pearsons, Hodder, Folens and Boardworks. If you would like to receive updates, create your own customised bundle or join our team, then follow us on the Facebook or Twitter links.

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.
