CURRICULUM

Autumn Term Project - Peasants, Pestilence and Princes

 

Peasants, Princes and Pestilence

 

Flee your fields, close your doors and pull up the drawbridge. The dreaded and deadly Great Pestilence is here. Mount your steed and gallop through the dark and deadly world of 14th century Britain, sword and shield at the ready, pledging your allegiance to king and country. Rouse your troops with promises of bloody battle and violent jousts. Read and write historical accounts, poems and tales and discover the grotesque effects of bugs and bacteria on the human body. And if you smell a rat, my friend, get out of there!

 

Oak National Academy and BBC Bitesize provide some interactive home learning resources.
