Having taught History across KS3, 4 and 5 for seventeen years within state education, I have built up quite an extensive set of resources! I’ve spent several years working as a head of department and also spent a year working as a university subject tutor for Schools Direct. I’m currently out of the classroom and supporting my own children through their secondary experience and keeping relevant by becoming an Edexcel examination marker this summer. Planning for fun and hopefully your benefit.

This KS3 unit of study should take around 15 hours to complete. There is a Power Point included for every lesson which leads students through the activities and provides advice and guidance where required.

In teaching/loose chronological order, the lessons include:

  • King James I, witchcraft and science
  • The Gunpowder Plot
  • Causes of the English Civil War
  • Events of the civil war and Charles’ defeat
  • The execution of Charles I
  • Oliver Cromwell: Hero or Villian?
  • The Plague in London
  • The Great Fire of London, 1666

There are a great range of activities including discussion, speech writing, pamphlet making and formal assessments. The two formal assessments are the essay on the causes of the Civil War and a source investigation into Oliver Cromwell. Writing frames and mark schemes are included for these. For more details, please refer to individual lesson summaries.
