Civil War Soldiers’ Poster

Students are to complete their Civil War posters on the soldiers who fought in it. There are 3 soldiers they need to write about: Cavalry Officer, Pikeman, Musketeer.

For each they have to: describe how they fought, write about their equipment, write a little about each person.

They have information sheets with everything they need to know on it.

If there are issues with working together, or lack of colours, etc., students have been told they can work together in my room any lunchtime. Therefore this should not be an issue!


Making of the UK Spelling Test

Students are to learn the 1st 15 words & phrases from their Key Word sheet which is stuck in the inside back cover of their exercise book. All students have this sheet – this was checked during their lesson.

The 15 words/phrases go up to and include the word “priests”

Lady Anne Clifford

Lady Anne Clifford Research

The above attachment is what students have been given to help them with their research project.

It can be handed in any time before the deadline – as students are not at school in 2 weeks, I have extended this to given them time to complete it; otherwise it would have to be completed in a week.

The work needs to be either 1.5 pages of their exercise books long – minimum. Or they can do it on computers – only on Word or equivalent and font size 14 maximum and only on Times New Roman, Aerial or Comic Sans MS. This is to be 1 page of A4 minimum with no gaps between lines.

Any issues with printing off work from computers can be solved by either doing the work at school, or sending it completed to my school email address which they should have copied down: Or simply by writing it out in their exercise books, which they should all have!

Students also have plenty of time to see me for any help

Beggars poster

Students are to complete their Wanted Beggar poster. They should have written on the back of their posters the success criteria. Any issues regarding using felts, or information, they can do the work with me of a lunchtime for support
