How different was life under Cromwell and Charles?

How different was life under Cromwell and Charles?

As a starter, pupils write down everything they can remember about Oliver Cromwell on the word-splash sheet provided. Using the Horrible Histories video (particularly suited to years 7/8) pupils will plot information into a table, helping them to compare how different life was under Cromwell and Charles. For the plenary, pupils use the writing frame to help them explain what they feel is the most important reason that people were happy to have the monarchy back.

Battle of Britain

Battle of Britain

As a starter students highlight what they think the important information is on the handout (which has been differentiated). Students then use what they have done to come up with some questions and answers that they will use to test the person sitting next to them. After they've come up with the questions, they quiz each other. Then, as the last main activity, students write a paragraph explaining the key features of the Battle of Britian. Plenary is a Think/Pair/Share exercise.
