L1- introduction to early settlers and what people have brought to Britain- students are to sell Stone Henge- I usually complete this task over 2 lessons
L2- What does it mean to be British?
L3- Create your own country- booklets for students and they are to work in groups to find out the basics to establishing their own country- usually takes 2 lessons
L4- Early immigration research- find out about the Romans, Celts, Vikings, Anglo-Saxons
L5- Assessment/ essay. SEN resources provided as well for assessment
L6- Other immigrants
L7- Positives and Negatives immigration has brought

The whole point of this topic is to establish what is an immigrant and to conclude that everyone in Britain is an immigrant.
I used this resource with my current GCSE citizenship group when teaching unit 3: The global community
It includes: 3 introduction lessons on citizenship and using citizenship perspectives (I have used the recent Calais crisis). The next lesson is all about the economy and then it leads onto government spending, inflation, who does what and then finally the successes and failures of business.
