A powerpoint I have put together of some of the key events leading up to the Iron Age. Not exhaustive, and hopefully historically accurate in the most part. I know that some aspects have many possible reasons, like the extinction of the Neanderthals, and I intend to explain these alongside the activity. I am going to use the slides as a drama activity putting together a timeline video sketch. If I have made any glaring mistakes, please comment so I know to amend. Please bear in mind I am no history expert, just researching my topic area so all constructive feedback welcomed!
This lesson involves pupils working in groups to produce an election campaign for one of the claimants to the throne in 1066. (Before the Battle of Hastings lesson) The PowerPoint goes through the claimants to the throne in 1066 which allows students to work in groups for the election campaign task.
The CV worksheet provides students with extra information to support with the group task. The election task work sheet gives clear instructions alongside extension tasks to enable students to complete high quality group work.

This lesson is an introduction to the mystery of the Tolland Peat Bog Man and what happened to him. This lesson is designed to get younger KS3 pupils questioning evidence. They have to make a decision as to whether he was murdered, committed suicide or it was an accident. Pupils should work in pairs and the teacher drip feeds the information gradually to encourage pupils to form opinions and have them challenged. They then can present their decision to the rest of the class using the evidence.
Contains three worksheets, full lesson plans and a fully animated Powerpoint presentation like a news report.
