2. Norman Conquest for diverse curriculum – Knowledge Organiser

Download this knowledge organiser for the forth unit in the HRC Year 7 Diverse Curriculum.

The unit is centred around the question: ‘Arrogant, warlike and very pleased with themselves’: What were the Normans really like?

This knowledge organiser provides your students with the core substantive knowledge,  key terms and chronological knowledge they will need to know to be successful in this unit.

We recommend that you don’t give this out at the beginning of the unit of work. If you do it will take the mystery away from your lessons.

Instead, hand it out nearer the end of the lesson series when all but one of the lessons have been taught.

You can ask your class to use the knowledge organiser for homework and to get their parents to test them on the core knowledge within it.
