Motte and Bailey Castles

Motte and Bailey Castles

Some prior knowledge of castles is required for this lesson to work effectively. I completed this lesson for an observation and received an outstanding. Complete the knowledge builder by allowing students to guess the answer based on the first, second or third clue. When they have guessed they cannot change their answer i.e. guess on the first clue for three points and then they realise they have it wrong on the third clue - they cannot change. This is then followed by castle an exercise where the castles key features are incorrectly identified - students have to correct the error. The lesson features both starter and plenary as well as Emerging, Developed, Secured and Mastered lesson objectives.

Edexcel CRIME and ANGLO SAXON 1-9 Walk and Talk Mocks with Therapy.

I made this resource for my GCSE Groups and used it alongside the PiXL Smith Pro-Forma generator. If you dont have access to PiXL this still worked really well. Stage 1: Set the Exam. Students sit the examination as a formal mock exam. Stage 2: Mark the exams but not in detail. Use the included marking spreadsheet (which can be used to upload to PiXL if you have access) to RAG each question for each student. You then issue them with the therapy that matches there need. Stage 3: Issue and complete the therapy documents. Stage 4: Re-Sit the exam question which they have completed the therapy for. Stage 5: Revel in the improved outcome of your learners.

Getting It Together: From Colonies to Federation - The National Story

Getting It Together: From Colonies to Federation - The National Story

‘Getting It Together: From Colonies to Federation’ is a middle years resource provided by the Museum of Australian Democracy. This extensive resource examines Australia’s journey to federation using historical sources such as newspaper extracts, cartoons, speeches and biographies. Students can use ‘Getting It Together’ to actively discover and explore the story of Federation – the social and political journey that led the people of six separate colonies to agree on a Constitution, which brought the nation of Australia and its Federal Parliament into being in 1901. While investigating the past, students are also engaged with issues affecting Australia’s development and identity today and into the future. ‘Getting it Together’ is organised into seven packages each containing a series of activities for students to explore in the classroom. This package, ‘The National Story,’ brings all of the colonial stories together. Other packages focus on New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, Western Australia and Queensland. These are available on the MoAD Learning Resources page here: https://www.moadoph.gov.au/learning/resources/getting-it-together-from-colonies-to-federation/ Each package is divided into three themes: People and Places: explores the way of life in each colony prior to Federation. Road to Federation: examines the political issues debated by colonial parliaments in deciding whether or not to join in Federation. Celebrations and Futures: looks at the way Federation was celebrated in 1901 and its continuing importance today.

Paired Texts - Australasia - Literal, Inference, Meaning and Summary questions

This guided reading resource includes a pair of texts about Australasia with four comprehension skills sheets to complete, providing reading passages and questions that are challenging and engaging.

Text is differentiated and an answer scheme is provided. Suggested itinerary: Day 1 (30 mins) – Read both texts as a class. Highlight key parts. Discuss together. What have we learned? What do we want know more about? It is worth asking the students to write down any questions they have about the texts and putting them on display. Day 2 (30 mins) – Literal sheet Day 3 (30 mins) – Inference sheet (or meaning sheet if you prefer) Day 4 (30 mins) – Meaning sheet (or inference sheet if you prefer) Day 5 (45 mins) – Summary sheet and looking back at questions from the start of the week. This is the second in a series of Paired text resources looking at the seven continents of the world. Keep an eye on my store. Differentiation: All questions are the same, which should make marking easier! However, the texts differ, with asterisks in the bottom right corner indicating the reading level.

Emancipation Proclamation ESCAPE ROOM: Abraham Lincoln, Civil War

Emancipation Proclamation ESCAPE ROOM: Abraham Lincoln, Civil War

Emancipation Proclamation Escape Room Activity: The Emancipation Proclamation Escape Room will take students on a secret mission around the classroom! This escape room has students decode interesting facts about the Emancipation Proclamation, Abraham Lincoln, slavery and the Civil War. This is the perfect resource to introduce a famous historical executive order in a fun way! The Emancipation Proclamation Escape Room has students walking around the classroom breaking codes. The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit code based on the decoders/clues. Each clue and code is different. The codes require students to think differently to decipher or decode them. Some codes are easier than others. Some codes require critical thinking to determine what a letter/symbol stands for. Each code will reveal interesting facts or an analysis about the Emancipation Proclamation. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final code. Students can report the final code to you. If you wanted to, you could purchase a 4 digit lock that you program, but it is not necessary at all! No props needed!! This is a NO PREP, PRINT & GO Activity! The best age range for this resource is 8+. Please look at the preview to determine if this resource works for your age group. Younger students may need some help with some of the more difficult codes. You can use the pre-labeled clues or you can challenge older kids to choose/find the decoder that works for each of the clues. A set of labeled and non-labeled decoders are included for differentiation. A “How to Decode” puzzles is also included. As a “timed” challenge, students will be engaged from beginning to end. This escape room includes 12 fun, colorful signs to take class pictures with at the end of the mission. Signs include “Puzzle Master”, “She did all the work”, “Genius”, “We did it”, “I Escaped” and more! Hang the pictures in your room, send them in a parent newsletter or share them on social media  An answer key and easy to follow teacher directions are provided. Time needed: 30-60 minutes New Feature: I have included a 6 question formative to complete as proof of understanding. Each “clue” also has one question to answer to ensure comprehension for a total of 10 questions. Many times students rush to solve the puzzles without reading or comprehending what they read. The questions need to be answered correctly before they can win!

The English Civil War: How did the two sides fight?

The English Civil War: How did the two sides fight?

This lesson focuses on how the two sides fought in the Civil War. Students learn about the musketeers and pikemen, before analysing their role in the Battle of Marston Moor. The students take on the job of Oliver Cromwell and make key decisions to win the battle, gaining points as they go along. However they must be careful not to make mistakes and lose the battle with catastrophic consequences for Parliament and the New Model Army! There is also a chance to look at an alternative view of the Civil War. Was the decision taken to kill the King early on, or did Parliament arrive painstakingly at this decision over time. Students plot this on a graph before reaching their own conclusions. The resource comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change.
