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. 👍

Causes and Battles of the Wars of the Roses

(0)
A two lesson pack looking at: Lesson 1 - the causes of the Wars of the Roses. Comprehension task based on a cartoon strip. Lesson 2 - the battles. Pupils use a map showing the location of the main battles between 1455 and 1471 (and its key) to create a living graph from the Yorkist perspective. They also analyse the completed living graph with 4 comprehension questions. Within both ppts you will find a pupil progress activity (one at the start of lesson 1, the other at the end of lesson 1/start of lesson 2) aimed at showing progression during lessons/unit of work. There's also a reading research homework activity within the ppt - pupils are asked to select one battle and find five key/interesting facts. They must also evaluate the usefulness of their research media. This task is based on strands within the Literacy Framework. Enjoy!
