1066 and all that!

1066 and all that!

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. An extra activity, enabling students to look at the uniform of the Norman Soldiers, is also included.
