- 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.
