The Tudors: Elizabeth I's portraits

The Tudors: Elizabeth I's portraits

The aim of this lesson to find out about the hidden messages in Elizabeth I's portrait paintings. Students learn about how Elizabeth manipulated her portraits and added symbols each of which had a hidden meaning. The introduction to the lesson looks at anachronisms and modern day symbols put into portraits to get the students thinking how pictures should not always be seen at face value. Students are then given information about each of her paintings and have to analyse their meanings and various symbolic codes.

AQA GCSE 9-1 Revision Guide: Germany 1890-1945

AQA GCSE 9-1 Revision Guide: Germany 1890-1945

This is a revision guide tailored to the new AQA Germany 1890-1945 specification for GCSE. I have again been inspired to write this not due to a lack of revision guides for Germany out there (as there are plenty and of good quality), but because I needed to tailor it to suit the new GCSE specification complete with the types of questions and the skills on how to answer them for my students. Therefore this revision guide includes practice questions throughout on the 6 main questions and gives examples of model answers. The information is also broken down into an easy to use format to aid the students in their revision programme. I have also included some useful mnemonics for specific areas of study which have really helped in past GCSEs. This Guide has been designed to be engaging, detailed and easy to follow and can be edited and changed to suit. Any reviews on this resource would be much appreciated. Please email me for a free copy of my AQA Germany revision summary guide worth £4 if you do.

AQA Conflict and Tension 1918-39 GCSE 9-1 Revision Flashcards

AQA Conflict and Tension 1918-39 GCSE 9-1 Revision Flashcards

I have produced these flashcards in another bid to get my Year 11's revising and focusing on the forthcoming GCSE exam. I use these 78 flashcards in revision sessions and intervention after school. They have proved a great success and it also gives the students something to take home and revise. I also email them to parents so they can keep track on heir child's homework and revision. They need cutting down the middle and folding; the students then test themselves and each other, removing the ones they recognise and retaining those they don't. The flashcards contain the main events, people and key words needed for the exam.

Medieval Britain: The Wars of the Roses 1455-1485

Medieval Britain: The Wars of the Roses 1455-1485

This lesson is broken down into two parts. The first describes and explains the events surrounding the Wars of the Roses. Students learn about the Kings involved and the battles fought through fun tasks, video evidence and role play. Equipped with this new found knowledge they have to explain what they have learnt through a ‘talk like an historian’ quiz. The second part of the lesson focuses on the previous Tudor perceptions of Richard III. Was he really a deceitful and cunning person, ‘a lump of foul deformity’ with a hunchback according to Shakespeare, More and Virgil? Archaeological evidence from King Richard’s remains is analysed to prove or disprove some of these popular ‘misconceptions’ about his posture and character. Students are then challenged to write to the current Education Secretary to make sure correct History lessons are now taught about Richard III. This lesson is fully resourced and has differentiated learning materials to suit all abilities. Any reviews of the lesson are welcomed.

The students have a visible chronology of Elizabeth I and her difficulties as a female ruler and the religious challenges she faced. The timeline also cites the exploration Raleigh and Drake, the plays and theatres of Shakespeare, the defeat of the Spanish Armada and the first Poor Laws. The aim is to clarify and simplify the subject content for the students and each of the 49 slides has an accompanying picture and commentary on the side. Many of my students have already downloaded and downsized the slides to aid them in their revision at home.

But more importantly they evaluate the role of the League and its clear inability to act decisively, even before Britain and France undermined its very foundations.
