Industrial Revolution: A Wolsey Academy Scheme of Work on the Industrial Revolution. Target is KS3 but all assessments throughout are GCSE and use Edexcel criteria. Each lesson contains a lesson plan, quick start guide, printable resources, mini plenaries, challenge questions, mark schemes, writing frames, lots of differentiation, a nice mix of activity types and a lesson specific EAL activity sheet. There are 14 lessons in total, but each lesson has enough material to last 2 or 3 lessons for even high ability classes. Most lessons include some high-level source analysis. The lessons also include a link to a site hosting a self-marking End of Unit quiz and a revision guide which make for nice homework activities. The SOW has been used for several years (with continual updates and improvements) at a very successful History department in an outstanding school. If used at KS3 it also acts as a grounding for any History of Medicine modules they might encounter at KS4 (hence the focus on public health and inventions). The SOW covers the following topics: Introduction to the Industrial Revolution (free) Population Boom (free) Factories Coal Mining Transport Robert Stephenson Industrial Revolution inventors Child Labour Public Health Problems Public Health Solutions & Government Intervention Source Question on the Big Stink Luddites British Empire Source Question on Empire Revision Guide & EAL activities.

1066 Norman Conquest - KS3

1066 Norman Conquest - KS3

13 Resources
1066 and the aftermath of conquest - featuring a unique immersive interactive Learning World (free to play!). The Learning World feeds directly into the in class lesson activities and can be used as an ongoing homework project – students can complete the free codex booklet as they go to consolidate learning. It is a very comprehensive SOW that covers the Norman conquest and its impact on English society. Each and every lesson has been made with enough differentiation, activity variety, cross-curricular support and progress checks that they could be used comfortably ‘out of the box’ in an observation lesson. Care has also been taken to make sure the skills complement each other across the SOW and build up to progress in exam writing ability, source analysis and soft skill development. I’m quite proud of it – if I may say so! The first two lessons and the Learning World Codex are free to download (some of the slides are not editable in these free versions) but the remaining lessons are for sale and are fully editable. Download the first two free lessons to see a detailed SOW breakdown or check out www.wolseyacademy.com to see all lessons and play the Learning World (for free!). I really hope you find this useful, I think it offers something a little different to students. If you like the Scheme of Work, please leave a review – and for every review left I’ll give you a free paid for resource from my TES Shop of your choice! So please do take the time! From my experience it created a huge ‘buzz’ about learning in the classroom and I even had kids in other classes asking to use it. So soon the whole department were using it and at KS3 parent’s evening it was all the parents talked about – many of them had also played through the Learning World. Note: The Learning World is a ‘beta’ version – I am currently looking for someone to upgrade the artwork to make a few things look more ‘Normany’. But I guarantee the pupils will love it. All are available to download and purchase at www.wolseyacademy.com - which is also where you can find the Learning World. I really hope you find these resources useful – and like I said, please do leave a review (and claim a free resource of your choice!)
