The concept of a revision clock is that pupils spend five minutes completing each section - thus meaning they revise a large amount of a single topic in an hour. this resource includes two revision clocks, i plan to provide my pupils with it printed double sided, they will complete one side in class and one side for homework. Another technique is to ask pupils to fill out what they know in one colour, and then use a second colour to revise using a revision guide or textbook, giving them a colour coded guide to what they need to focus their revision on.
Examination command words created to support pupils with understanding expectations of all three papers.

Who should be king homework - pupils have one each (3 claimants covered, Hardrada, Godwinson and William the Conqueror) Each profile includes: Why the individual wants to be king, problems with their plans, who they are and extension activity (an interesting fact about the individual). Support and differentiation: on the back of the worksheet it tells pupils who they are, their claim (strengths and weaknesses) and there are some websites for each individual at the bottom of the page. Pupils then use their research collaboratively to compare each other claimants and write a persuasive speech as to whom they think is the best choice.
