It uses a question stem from the new Edexcel GCSE 9-1 course to help prepare students. It also includes a help sheet for the students including structure and key words as well as a mark sheet for the teacher. This is in line with the old National Curriculum levels, but it is easily adaptable for individual needs for life after levels!

Henry VIII - Field of the Cloth of Gold

Henry VIII - Field of the Cloth of Gold

In this lesson students essentially judge how cool Henry VIII was. Through exploring the Field of the Cloth of Gold and a range of other statements students will make a judgement based on the "Cool-o-meter" This lesson was taught as an 80 minute lesson to Y8 but could easily be adapted to suit shorter lessons. There a range of activities here and my students found the lesson enjoyable! Students will need the resources attached and some colours to shade in statements. Enjoy! All images acquired through a search engine filtered to "labelled for re-use". Comments are appreciated.

Henry VIII's Family Tree

Henry VIII's Family Tree

For those confused by the ancestry of Henry VIII. This resource consists of the two branches of Henry VIII's ancestry. One sheet shows his mother's side, the other his father's. They are designed to show where domestic threats to Henry's throne may have come from. For this reason this family tree eliminates members of the family who do not demonstrate rival claimants to the throne in England. Relatives who married Scottish monarchs, or who had little claim to the throne, are not shown. This resource should help your pupils to clarify domestic rivals for Henry's throne.
