The first Stuart sheet is a Maths sheet. I then look at November the 5th the Gunpowder Plot, and there is a list of Fireworks and a Poetry Aid. There is a sheet about the Pilgrim Fathers 1620 . I have given four pages to the 1642-9 English Civil War. The first sheet is Events and Dates, the second is the trial and execution of Charles I, the map on the third page shows the positions of the king/parliament. The fourth sheet is a very clear picture of a Roundhead and Cavalier There are information sheets about the Plague and the Fire of London.

St. Stephen / Boxing Day
antonybatchelorantonybatchelor

St. Stephen / Boxing Day

(1)
St. Stephen is the forgotten saint! In the UK we think of it as Boxing Day - a National Bank Holiday. St.Stephen was the first Christian martyr. The twelve disciples of Jesus asked the believers in Jesus Christ to select seven deacons. The seven were given the task of caring for the poor.Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, who probably a Hellenistic Jew - born in Greece, was one of the chosen seven. Stephen, brimming with God’s grace and energy, was doing wonderful things until, out of jealousy, he was falsely accused of blaspheme. Blaspheme is when a person shows contempt or disrespect for God. He was taken in front of the Sanhedrin, the Jewish Council. He was given the opportunity to speak. He told them a few home truths - they had not listened to the prophets who they persecuted- they were responsible for the death of Jesus. They were outraged at what he said. He finished by saying," Oh! I see heaven wide open and the Son of Man standing at God’s side" To them that was blaspheme - hey took him outside and stoned him I have Scripture readings, Wikipedia, the Spruce -for Boxing day. There is also a word search with answers.
Volcanoes

Volcanoes

(1)
There are 10 main sheets plus two answer sheets. David Woodroffe drew for me a very good outline of a volcano for the children to use. The first vocabulary sheet is a list of interesting useful words. The second sheet is a fuller vocabulary. There are two 'crosswords' and two word searches. The next three sheets are about Pompeii AD79. The first sheet encourages the children to think about the event and suggests the children read Willard Prices Volcano Adventure. Twice I wrote pieces for my pupils - once pretending I was there, the second I went back as an observer in a time machine. The final two sheets are poetry aids. The second one was created in 2010 following the eruption of Eyjafallokull in Iceland.

The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

(0)
C. S. Lewis, Clive Staple Lewis, Jack to his friends wrote more than 30 books. He is most famous for his The Chronicles of Narnia, a series of seven books written for children. The children visit the magical land of Narnia where Aslan, the Lion reigns. He takes the Pevensie children on a series of adventures where good eventually always over comes evil. To go with the series I have created seven sets of crosswords and word searches, answers included. HarperCollinspublishers have produced an excellent pop-up book to go with the series of seven books - Narnia Chronology -from the Archives of the Last King. ISBN 9780061240058 Wlkiepedia has a great deal of information about C.S. Lewis - biography notes and detailed book summaries (2 levels) about each of the books.

Easter

Easter

(1)
David Woodroffe, a professional illustrator, has created some very good clip art for my Easter resource. The Holy week sheet looks briefly at Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. I have created a page listing the personalities and the order of events from the Last Supper to Christ's appearance, following his resurrection to two disciples on the road to Emmaus. The Poetry Aid can be used to create a poem or even a hymn to celebrate Easter. The fourteen stages of the cross has been deal with clip art. The main personalities have been included in a word search. The Easter diary can be written up on the 'blank' sheet. Children are often asked to see how many words they can find in a topical word - eg. Easter. I have enclosed four sheets, a lesson outline, a pupil sheet and two answer sheets. (I have included Pancake Day because I did not want to set up a resource of just two pages. )

St. Joseph
antonybatchelorantonybatchelor

St. Joseph

(0)
I have put together some information about St. Joseph, the husband of Mary and foster father of Jesus. On the liturgical calendar he has two feast days - March 19th - Joseph the husband of Mary - established in the tenth century, and May 1st Joseph the worker in 1955 . March 19th normally falls in Lent. In some churches they have a meal of crumbs - representing wood shavings remembering that St. Joseph was a carpenter by trade. I have included two pieces of work from Britannica. They contain the same information but one is in a bolder font and the other in smaller print with certain words high lighted - between the two a piece of gap work could be created -see example included. In some catholic countries, notably Italy, Portugal and Spain, Father’s day is celebrated on St. Joseph’s Day, March 19th.
Saint Cuthbert
antonybatchelorantonybatchelor

Saint Cuthbert

(1)
The story of Saint Cuthbert divides into two halves Lindisfarne The first part looks at his life and works In Lindisfarne, Northumbria. How he begins life in a monastery as a novice and eventually becomes a bishop. How also he took time out to becoming a hermit and live on Inner Farne for 10 years- the job being to fight the spiritual forces of evil in a life of solitude. The second half is Durham. After his death and the realisation that his body had not decomposed miracles started to happen and how his remains eventually end up in Durham Cathedral. I have created a type of time line of his life based on information from Lindisfarne. Followed by information about the moving of his remains to Durham and the two stories about how his remains ended up in Durham .

St. Augustine of Canterbury
antonybatchelorantonybatchelor

St. Augustine of Canterbury

(0)
St. Augustine of Canterbury I think is the ' forgotten' saint of England. He is not to be confused with St. Augustine of Hippo. He is sometimes called' the Apostle of England' or' St. Augustine the less'. He was chosen by Pope Gregory to lead a mission to Britain. His task was to Christianize King Ethelbert and his kingdom of Kent from Anglo Saxon Paganism. In the short time he was in England (597- 604 AD) he laid the foundations for the Church of England. He was the first Archbishop of Canterbury. I have put together some information about Augustine with a 'gap' sheet, a simple crossword and word search, plus an answer sheet.
