History

 

What were William’s problems after the Battle of Hastings?

 

  • Begin by asking children what they remember about the Battle of Hastings. Challenge them to retell the main events in chronological order with a partner.
  • Explain that, although William was victorious at the Battle of Hastings, he still faced many problems before he was officially crowned the king of England. What might they have been? Think, pair, then share your ideas.
  • Use the following slides to look at five of William’s most immediate problems. For each one, show the children three possible courses of action that William could have taken (including the solution he actually chose). Let children discuss and decide which solution William chose, before revealing the answer on the next slide. Why do you think he chose this solution?
  • Tell the children that these decisions served William well. He was crowned the king of England on 25th December, 1066. Nowadays, he is often referred to as William the Conqueror.

 

Activity

 

Children first read the Character Information Cards and think about how each of these people must have been feeling after the recent events. They then write a short sentence from each character’s point of view, explaining how they might be feeling and why.

 

Teaching

 

Show the children two statements about William the Conqueror.

Which of these statements do you most agree with?

 

Think, pair, then share your opinions.
