Hello, and welcome to my resource shop. I aim to create original resources for KS3, GCSE and AS/A2. I also aim to provide resources on the less obvious, mainstream topics and bring in elements of the LNF. I have 20 years experience as a History teacher, and 15 years as HoD. Have a look around and grab a bargain! 😄 Please leave an honest rating on any resources you may buy. 👍

WJEC GCSE (Wales) Unit 1 Structure Strips (New Spec) Elizabeth, Depression, War & Recovery etc.

(0)
These are structure strips to aid pupils to successfully structure their answers for the Unit 1 exam. The theory is they glue a strip to the side of the page, and then follow the guidelines to help them get to grips of what each question demands for a good/high mark. Pupils then number code their answer. Teacher then marks the work and suggests lettered code(s) for improvement. The attached resources are for the Depression, War and Recovery Unit, but the headers on each strip can easily be edited for your specific unit title. The font colour will need to be darker for printing.

(0)
A 2 lesson resource looking at the long term and short term causes of the Glyndwr Rebellion against Henry IV. Elements of Bloom's taxonomy are incorporated into the various activities (progression in difficulty/skill used). Also elements of literacy and numeracy.

Second task: pupils to watch a short hyperlinked clip to see if they can answer 4 basic questions about Glyndwr. (Bloom's Recall) Third task: pupils to look at the various grievances in Wales (and personal factors regarding Glyndwr), and categorise them into SPEAR factors. (Bloom's Understanding and Analysis) Fifth task: pupils consider the most important reason(s) why Glyndwr and the Welsh rebelled, and explain whether or not Glyndwr was a reluctant rebel. (Bloom's Evaluate) Final task: this one is up to you, and could cover Bloom's Create. Hope you'll find this useful! Enjoy! Fourth task: pupils then translate the above information into a 9 part factor wheel (e.g. beliefs and ideas, media, poverty, religious etc.), annotating the wheel with at least one important example for the relevant factors.

wodeweewodewee

Does Henry VII deserve a statue in the Marble Hall of Welsh Heroes?

(0)
A simple task to get pupils to think about what constitutes a national hero, what that person had to do to deserve such admiration, and whether or not Henry Tudor (VII) deserved such a title in 1916 when statues representing heroes of Welsh History were unveiled for the first time in Cardiff City Hall in 1916. The powerpoint/task is self explanatory, and has proven successful in getting pupils to consider how values have changed since 1916. One slide referring to the 11 statues provides an opportunity for a lively debate on whether or not they think they should still be regarded as heroes, and if not, who they'd replace them with! Enjoy!

Gunpowder Plot. What if? Numeracy Tasks

(0)
What if the Gunpowder Plot had succeeded? Here's a fun activity linking History with some numeracy tasks. Pupils should be given a map of 1605 London (found on ppt) and work out the radius impact areas a successful explosion could have had. They also have to work out a possible escape route for Guy Fawkes to an awaiting ship near Tower Bridge, calculate the distance he'd travel and the time he'd take. There's also a question to work out if Fawkes would have made it beyond the blast zones in time. Questions are based on the Numeracy Framework. You could differentiate by giving specific questions to different abilities. Enjoy!
