The Tudors

The Tudors

Here is a series of lessons and activities which were taught to my Year 7 pupils this year, starting from the Wars of the Roses and finishing on Elizabeth I and her problems as Queen of England. All activity sheets are attached, along with any starter activities. Extension activities are provided throughout and all power points are pretty self explanatory, practically a lesson plan in the PowerPoint alone. I have not looked at the specific events of Elizabeth's reign as we were looking at Elizabeth in depth later to prepare our pupils for the Elizabeth Spec with Edexcel. Please feel free to leave a comment.

How did William deal with the problems as the new King of England?

How did William deal with the problems as the new King of England?

This is a series of lessons taught to my Year 7 pupils after our study of the Norman Conquest. The idea here is to allow pupils to develop their understanding of change and continuity to allow for easier access to examinations for the new GCSE. There are a variety of tasks for pupils of all abilities; most tasks are already differentiated for immediate use.

Literacy Tube Map

Literacy Tube Map

This is a Literacy Tube Map I created to help pupils develop their extended writing. The different tube lines are specific to various conjunctions, which pupils will be familiar with from year 7 onwards. I distribute these when pupils are due to complete a piece of extended writing; can allow differentiation to occur in your lesson, for example, if you have a pupil who regularly fails to include a conclusion you can tell them to focus on the green line specifically for their target.

Cromwell- Hero or Villain?

Cromwell- Hero or Villain?

This lesson was a lesson observation which has differentiation for all types of learners. The aim of this lesson was to create a group essay with 4 other pupils, all of different ability to offer additional support when writing out their answer to the question, This lesson relies heavily on sources, and as some pupils are better at this skill I have included 6 different source sheets, which not only differ on source type but also writing support and prompts when answering questions. Hope it helps you as much as it helped me in my formal observation.

Keyword Tube Map

Keyword Tube Map

I have adapted my Literacy Tube Map to create a Keyword Map, which aims to eradicate spelling mistakes of keywords in various topics covered throughout the year. This particular map is for my Year 7 pupils who will, at some point, study each of the topics, for example, Medieval England, Tudors, and the English Civil War. I find that throughout the year I am regularly circling the same keywords in pupils books, so I introduced this to their books, which they can use every lesson throughout the year to allow them to learn to spell keywords correctly so we can spend more time on developing skills rather than SPaG.

Queen Elizabeth and life in Elizabethan England

Queen Elizabeth and life in Elizabethan England

Here are a series of lessons on Queen Elizabeth I, detailing some of the various threats she faced during her reign. The final lessons delve slightly into methods of crime and punishment in Tudor England to provide pupils with some contextual understanding of the methods used prior to their in-depth study of Crime and Punishment and Elizabethan England in their GCSE studies (Edexcel).
