This bundle covers a block of 3 - 4 lessons for Key Stage 3 students studying Medieval history and the events of 1066. The first lesson concentrates on the claimants to the English throne in 1066, using a variety of primary and secondary sources and supported by a PowerPoint presentation to ask students to make a decision on which candidate has the best claim based on a set of criteria. The second resource looks at the events of 1066 from the death of Edward the confessor to the Battle of Hastings. The resource uses a PowerPoint to give the basic Chronological Information and then students use a timeline of events to look at chronology, produce a storyboard and using a differentiated resource can evaluate who was in the best position to win the Battle of Hastings. The final resource looks at the Battle of Hastings itself. A PowerPoint guides students through the events of October 14th 1066 and students use differentiated worksheets to answer questions about how the day progressed and why the Normans won the Battle.
