KS2 History - The Fall of the Roman Empire. Why did it happen? Children learn about the invasions of the Scots, Picts and Anglo-Saxons on a PowerPoint, which has additional tasks to complete. Children then have to create a timeline of events, which has been differentiated three ways (LA, MA, HA). LA - children to simply cut out, order the events based on dates and then stick them down. MA - Children have been provided with all of the images and information, however they have been mixed up - these children must cut out all of the images and information separately and match them together. HA - These children have been given all of the images and dates, however they need to come up with their own captions to explain each event.
The class was spilt up into teams of 5/6, each of them was given a one of the research 'question cards' (which had been laminated). Each team then had to find the answers to all of their own questions using the information sheets, iPads and books from the library. The children presented their information on a large poster. Once all of the information was collected, the children used this to create their own 'World Cup Board Games', which they had to make a board, rules, game cards, etc for to allow other members of the class to play. The winning team was awarded a prize.
