This worked so well with my Year 7 class on my PGCE placement - my mentor loved the idea and I enjoyed it as much as the kids did. Everyone got into it and I gave everyone a sweet at the end for behaving so well and taking part! Thanks for the idea!

Hi Stephanie,
Thanks for your comment - it is great to hear this resource worked so well with a older yeargroup and how you adapted it.

I used this activity with a year 11 group yesterday (we are studying castles and the medieval period for our controlled assessment) and it was a BRILLIANT introduction to the Rebel barons (students recorded their feelings towards John, and towards each other as we progressed). Thank you :)
