How did WIlliam use the Feudal System?

How did WIlliam use the Feudal System?

Lego figures help to make the Feudal System a little less complex. Through reinforcing the idea of a hirearchy students begin to understand what the feudal system was and how it helped William control England. The script activity involves selected students ripping up A3 paper and dividing it amongst the class. If you have questions please ask! Comments are much appreciated :-) Images acquired through a search engine fitlered to "labelled for resuse".

What made 9/11 so shocking?

What made 9/11 so shocking?

There aren't many September 11th lessons out there so here's one! The main objective is for students to gauge how 'complete' a BBC news clip is. The PowerPoint includes task descriptions but please ask if you can't follow the lesson. The bottom of the posters should be folded up so that you can reveal the answers! You choose the plenary. If you know of a short clip which was produced a little after the event that would be useful. Any comments are appreciated! :-) Images acquired through a search engine filtered to "labelled for reuse" BBC own the copyright to the clip in the link. I've been observed in this lesson and graded as outstanding so hopefully this works for you too. (911, 9-11)

How successful was the Roman army?

How successful was the Roman army?

In this lesson students challenge an interpretation made by the History Channel. The lesson is set-up by students watching a minute long introduction to a documentary. They then spend the lesson trying to test the interpretation presented. The end result is that students write a letter to the History Channel advising whether their statement was right or wrong. I taught this lesson to some able Y6 students but it work equally well for Y7 and Y8 if desired. Example student work attached.

Henry VIII - Field of the Cloth of Gold

Henry VIII - Field of the Cloth of Gold

In this lesson students essentially judge how cool Henry VIII was. Through exploring the Field of the Cloth of Gold and a range of other statements students will make a judgement based on the "Cool-o-meter" This lesson was taught as an 80 minute lesson to Y8 but could easily be adapted to suit shorter lessons. There a range of activities here and my students found the lesson enjoyable! Students will need the resources attached and some colours to shade in statements. Enjoy!
