The Great Fire of London Resource Pack KS1

The Great Fire of London Resource Pack KS1

This pack contains a fantastic BBC video - 16 mins or so- where a Magic Grandad takes his Grandchildren back in time to 1666 and witness the Great Fire- meeting Samuel Pepys and learning about the events of those 4 days. PPT. Poem by Paul Perro- written shortly after the fire. To learn as part of English cross curricular. There is also a Minecraft video clip that appeals to KS1 which also guides you through the streets of London -giving a feel for buildings back then. Tudor House resource shows the children the differences between houses and teaches about how the style contributed to the fire spreading. This is an Art activity where they draw the houses with charcoal/cut and stick. Lots of historical objectives met by sequencing events, comparing now and then- role play masks, small world background and word mats etc also included. Hope this is useful to you :)

Christmas through the ages!

Christmas through the ages!

Time travel Britain! Students learn about Christmas during two different eras; the medieval period and Christmas during the rule of Oliver Cromwell. These two booklets include a range of activities (that need minimal teacher intervention) such as a time travel activity, source analysis, writing up a report about Christmas in the period of study (a differentiated version included with sentence stems and a version without literacy support is included), a stamp making activity, a word search and a quick recap at the end where students change their time travels views based on what they now know. Each book will take the students a 60 minute lesson to work through (so enough material for two lessons here). Enjoy a stress free end of term lesson :-).
