A Key Stage 3 lesson, used as part of a Welfare State unit of work on the establishment of the National Health Service in 1948. We complete quick retrieval starter on the discovery of penicillin to begin with. We then discuss what happened to people when they got ill before the NHS. We look at the Beveridge Report and the pupils complete a reading text analysis by reading the text and answering the questions around the outside of the template. We then look at the changes made by the Labour government. The pupils rate these changes in terms of how useful they were to ordinary people and explain their impacts. We then move onto the formation of the NHS, we watch a public information video created in 1948 and the pupils answer questions about this. We then look at a further clip on the NHS beofre asking the question ‘Is the NHS Britain’s greatest ever achievement?’.
I hope that this proves useful and saves you some time.
