Student Placemats

Many students have problems recalling simple facts. They can easily get events muddled up and are often unwilling to stick there hand in the air and ask for help. These resources try to address some of these issues.

Each 'Placemat' contains an overview of the events involved, enabling students to quickly place thigns into the coreect chronological sequence. There is a small bank of key words and useful definitions to remind students of the terminology that they should be using. Each Placemat also incorporates a small selection of sentence starters that should come in handy over a course of study.

Introduction to History Includes Time periods, defines historic terminology and includes sentence starters relting to source based work.
The Norman Conquest Puts the events of 1066 in order, introduces some new words and builds on the sentence starts used in the first unit.
The Tudors Largely focusses on the religious aspects of the Tudor era. The chronology covers a wider range of issues.
Hot War, Cold War  

How are the placemats used?

Quite simple. They are printed out and laminated. They are then used as resting mats by students who are writing on lined paper or are available as reference sheets where students are writing in exercise books. They can easily be reduced in size and stuck into exercise books at the start of a new topic.

New placemats will be uploaded shortly, they are being developed in preparation for the next academic year.
