Year 7 Topics: Anglo Saxon/ Viking England and 1066 Term: Spring 1

It is expected that in Year 7 students complete at least one piece of home work for History every week. It is important that homework is completed regularly and to a good standard. Homework assists in both securing the knowledge, understanding and skills that students gain within their lessons, as well as preparing them for future learning.

Instructions:

On the next page is a grid of homework tasks that the History department will set for this half term. Some of the tasks support the learning that students have already done within their lessons; others prepare students for lessons that are taught during the half term.

Each piece of homework links to a specific Historical skill, as well as to a level of challenge.

Simply pick one of the home work pieces from the list each week, complete it and hand it into your class teacher the following lesson.
