Medieval Puzzler: Secret  Message Review Activity

Medieval Puzzler: Secret Message Review Activity

Want a fun activity to review vocabulary terms for a unit of study on the Middle Ages?Looking for an enrichment activity in history? Try my Medieval Puzzler: Secret Message Review Activity. The activity involves students working individually or in groups to review vocabulary terms connected with Medieval Times. Then,a following direction activity is next where students place letters from the different terms into boxes found at the end of the activity page. Once all the boxes are filled, a “secret message” about the Middle Ages is revealed! The teacher page includes additional information to share about the “secret message”. It’s a fun way to reinforce important vocabulary for a unit of study on the Middle Ages! If you prefer to offer a vocabulary box, I have included this as well.

End of Term "News and General Knowledge Quiz" (January - June 2018)

End of Term "News and General Knowledge Quiz" (January - June 2018)

Sport - Music - Films - Places - History - Comics - Characters - Games etc. This is huge and this is going to be fun! Teachers, are you at a loss as to what to do in the final days leading up to the end of term and the onset of the summer break? Look no further, this is a quiz your class will enjoy. Tried and tested on Year 5 through to Year 8. Quite suitable for older students … and staff. Fun end-of-term quiz testing both general knowledge and events in the news from January to June 2018 This news/general knowledge quiz can be enjoyed by competing as an individual or in teams. Let’s keep it simple – get yourselves a sheet of paper for your answers and grab a pen or pencil. All your teacher needs to do is either go through all of the questions chronologically or alternatively each person/group can choose a month and a number from 1 – 21. All participants / groups must then answer the question that appears once the selected button has been clicked. A ‘back’ takes you back to the question selection page. Some of the questions involve only one answer needed whilst much of this quiz involves multiple questions. Your teacher will give you time to discuss and then to write down your answer if working in teams. You can even stretch the Quiz over a few days. The answers to all of the questions can be downloaded from the TES website. There will be a full year quiz available towards the end of 2018 with loads more interesting and challenging questions!

Life In a Middle Ages Castle Assembly or Class Play

Life In a Middle Ages Castle Assembly or Class Play

Life In a Middle Ages Castle Assembly - Banquet, Battle and Joust In this Key Stage II class play or assembly, our narrator and student become time travellers to the Middle Ages - in a brief but highly eventful visit to a medieval castle! Three scenes - Banquet, Joust and Battle - in which our time travellers find themselves participating in ways they could never have imagined! Cast of 30 - easily adaptable up or down; duration around 15 - 20 minutes. Sample Text: Squire: Here you are! (Looking at ‘crowd’) Best not keep this lot waiting! (Loud cheer from the crowd) Narrator: Waiting? What for? Squire: Why, you of course! You must know how much the crowd love jousts? Toby: Jousts? (Squire presents Narrator and Toby with a lance) Narrator: Oh no! No! You see, there’s been a mistake! Toby: (Holding up lance) Yes. I mean, we don’t know one end of this pole from the other! Squire: (Laughing) Oh you and your little jokes! Narrator: No, that was the last scene. Toby: There’s nothing funny about us two being brave knights! I mean, we’re not! Brave, that is! Squire: (Patting heads reassuringly) Oh, I see! It’s just a case of pre-jousting nerves. Now, take a deep breath Narrator: No, you don’t understand! We (Loud cheer goes up from waiting crowd) Squire: Now, come along! We can’t keep this lot waiting! We’ll have a riot on our hands if you don’t start soon! Toby: But we don’t know what to do! Squire: (Taking lance) Here! Hold it like this and just charge at each other on horseback! Nothing to it! Narrator & Toby: (Exclaiming together) What? Another script is available from TES and www.plays-r-ussell.com entitled Castles and Knights but this is more for Key Stage I – even though it is suggested it could be adapted to Key Stage II. There is also a script entitled St. George and the Dragon which is suitable for Key Stage I.

Castles and Knights Assembly

Castles and Knights Assembly

Castles and Knights Assembly Key Stage I and/or II - Simple language but broad scope of information - script easily adapted to any age group. Although written for Key Stage I children (language kept very simple) this class play or assembly could be used at Key Stage II due to the broad scope of information. Cast of 30 - easily adjustable up or down Duration - around 10 - 15 minutes Content · The first part of the assembly deals with division between nobility and servants – their different life styles and jobs they did. · The second part looks at castle features – how they were built and how they changed over time. · The third part looks at weapons of battle – how they were used to attack and defend a castle. As previously mentioned, this assembly could be used by either of the two key stages – either simplified for younger children or elaborated upon for the older students. It is, I hope, a fairly versatile script which can be adapted for any age group. Also available off www.plays-r-ussell.com is The Battle of Hastings 1066. This assembly is for Key Stage II and goes into a lot more historical background including the events depicted and characters displayed on the Bayeux Tapestry. Sample Text (Enter Minstrel, Jester and Juggler) Minstrel: Who do you think played music at those banquets? Jester: Who do you think kept them laughing? Juggler: And who do you think entertained them? (Enter Soldiers 1 & 2) Soldier 1: And most important of all, who do you think kept them safe? Us soldiers, of course! Soldier 2: Protecting everyone against the enemy! Gong Farmer: Well. Almost most important of all! Narrator: Oh really? You think you’re more important than them? (Gong Farmer nods) Soldier 1: How? Gong Farmer: You really want to know? Soldier 2: Indeed, we do! Gong Farmer: I had to get rid of … Soldier 1: (Holding nose) Oh, now I get it! Soldier 2: You got rid of what came out of the garderobes? Narrator: The what? Soldier 2: Garderobes! Soldier 1: That’s castle toilets to you! Narrator: Ugh! Poor man! What a job! Gong Farmer: Well, someone had to do it! Narrator: Oh dear! I can see life wasn’t quite so glamourous for you folk! (All shake their heads in agreement) (Exit Gong Farmer, Servant, Cook, Hunter, Cleaner, Builder, Carpenter, Blacksmith, Priest, Steward, Minstrel, Jester, Juggler and Soldiers 1 & 2)

Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
