1066 The Saxon Times - The Battle of Hastings - Set of 8 Posters

History KS2 and KS3 The Saxon Times is a look at how the events of 1066 may have been reported by an English newspaper - with a little interference from the Normans. It is a uniquely English view of what happened in that momentous year and a very different look at the tumultuous events of the year 1066 that includes the Norman Conquest of England. The Saxon Times takes the form of a series of pages from a contemporary newspaper, reporting on events as they unfolded and appeared to contemporary people, and a selection of excerpts from the book are now available as a class resource from the author, David Clarke. The Saxon Times aims: • to inspire curiosity to know more about the past • to increase knowledge and understanding about 1066 • to understand how people’s lives have shaped the nation The Saxon Times will: • identify the significant events of 1066 • help develop perspective and argument • help weigh the available evidence • includes topical advertisements and by lines, such as ‘Ask Brother Ealdred’ and ‘The Food Section’, that provide humour, insight and help promote interest in life at the time. • Help understand the complexity of people’s lives and the relationships between different groups The Saxon Times provides a complete account of the year 1066 and full background to these resources. Further information on the Saxon Times, the resources available, thumbnail views and details of ‘how to buy’ individual sheets can be found at www.1066haroldsway.co.uk

The Vietcong (Edexcel GCSE)

The Vietcong (Edexcel GCSE)

The purpose of this lesson is to introduce pupils to The VC and their tactics. Pupils will begin with a literacy inquiry into 'Guerrilla Tactics' before being introduced to a short video - pupils are encouraged to note down all the tactics they can spot. Once receiving feedback the teacher will then instruct pupils to rank what they believe at the most effective tactics (judgment line/ whiteboards / sticky notes to explain most effective tactic). Pupils will then be introduced to the VC tunnels and assess two sources of evidence to inquire into the most useful to understand VC tactics (GCSE Edexcel mark scheme included to self / peer assess). Pupils watch a video (embedded) to consolidate. Further advice can be found in the description of the presentation and all videos/ sound clips are embedded (links provided). You may use to wish the Pearson USA textbook to support with the lessons content.

Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheener.  Freedom fighters or murderers?

Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheener. Freedom fighters or murderers?

Dispossessed of their land and all means of survival as a result of the genocidal "Black War" in Van Diemen's Land in the mid-1800s to 1832, warriors Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheener took the only option available to them, they fought back. Their guerrilla campaign resulted in the deaths of British settlers. The men were captured by the British army and transported to Port Phillip Bay (now Melbourne) to be the first men hung in the local prison. Were they freedom fighters or murderers? Unfortunately, our written evidence is entirely British. The Tasmanian Aborigines passed down their histories orally. Can you identify the forces at play: systemic racism, biased sources and dispossession on the scale of the Highland Clearances?
