BATTLE OF HASTINGS: WHY DID WILLIAM WIN?CARD SORTING/GROUP WORK/ESSAY PREPARATION

BATTLE OF HASTINGS: WHY DID WILLIAM WIN?CARD SORTING/GROUP WORK/ESSAY PREPARATION

This resource suits Year 7 pupils who have just studied the Battle of Hastings and are about to embark on answering the question - why did William win and Harold lose? The cards have been split into four categories looking at why William won. Pupils can be given all the cards and can work out a 'theme' themselves e.g. William won because of Harold's bad luck or you can give them the themes and they then decide which card fits into each theme. There are four pages to this activity, with the theme on each page which you can cut out and give to the pupils or omit for the more able pupils to work out themselves. This exercise encourages the pupils to answer the question in a structured way rather than them simply telling the story of the Battle of Hastings which will limit the level they can achieve. After completing the card sorting activity pupils can then write four paragraphs with a clear opening statement for each paragraph which directly answers the question. They can then back up the statement with evidence/facts (as seen in the cards) and then in their own words explain why this resulted in a win for William. Pupils can be encouraged to do some further research to add more detail to their answers but by following this card sorting activity they have got a clear structure to follow.

Why did William win the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.?

Why did William win the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.?

The first resource is a simple tops and tails exercise testing children about the claimants to the English throne in 1066. After teaching the pupils about the Battle of Hastings in a narrative style (albeit with a bit of maps and soldiers and dressing up!), I give the pupils a card sorting activity to do (which is the second part to the bundle) This helps to clarify the pupils' thinking about the actual causes of William's success and helps greatly, regardless of level, in helping pupils write an answer to the question in a structured, thematic way. The third part of the bundle is a mark scheme for pupils to study before preparing their answers. It outlines a typical level 4, 6 and 8 response to the question and helps them understand what it is they need to do to achieve these levels. It can also be used by teachers when marking and moderating pupil work. The final part of the bundle is a simple revision guide for pupils to follow before exams. Pupils are encouraged throughout this topic to carry out independent research and to add their findings to their answer.

Coal investigation: how coal changed the landscape and people of Wales

I created this activity for pupils who lived in the Mynydd Mawr area of south west Wales, near Llanelli. Whilst this was an excellent activity to do with the pupils from this area, it could be used for anyone studying the impact of coal. There are activities included which encourage pupils to think and communicate. I also took the pupils to the Big Pit as part of this investigation. If you like this activity please review my work!
