PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is the third lesson of a scheme of work in about Medieval Castles.

The focus of the lesson is to introduce pupils to Motte and Bailey Castles and to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses.

During the lesson pupils will:
- Analyse an ISM showing the distribution of Castles across England.
- Identify the reasons why William the Conqueror needed to build castles when he became king.
- Complete a role playing activity where pupils act as agents of a Saxon chief who wants to start a rebellion against William. During this activity pupils will create an image of a Motte and Bailey Castle, evaluate its strengths and weaknesses and plan an attack on it.
- Hot seating activity: One pupil will play the Saxon chief and evaluate the plans of attack developed by other pupils.

This lesson is ready to teach and includes all worksheets and resources needed.

This lesson is aimed towards a year seven class in England but could be easily be adapted for other levels.
