Students consider change and continuity between the Normans and the later Middle Ages, including Henry II and the introduction of the Common Law. Students first watch a clip from Tony Robinson's crime & punishment series [available on YouTube] which considers the impact of the changes introduced by Henry II. They are then asked to complete a categorisation activity with extension tasks, before attempting a 4 mark 'explain the difference' question.

Norman crime and punishment - Edexcel GCSE (9-1) History Crime and Punishment in Britain

After watching a clip from Tony Robinson's Crime & Punishment series [available on YouTube] on the impact of the Norman Invasion on crime & punishment, students complete a 'speed dating' exercise using either the Pearson Crime & Punishment textbook or the information included on the PowerPoint slides. Students are then required to think about why the Normans needed to increase their authority, before attempting a 12 mark 'explain' question. To support the students with the exam question there is a model answer and success criteria.
