When I set up the Humanities department at my last school, I decided to that students would study thematic topics; One of those was Law and Order.

Students in year 9 explored the origins of government and parliament from 1066.

As part of the topic on Law and Order students explored a variety of historical events that led to the development of parliament and government here in the UK as well as the consequences. This was later followed by looking at law and crime in Victorian Britain.

The assessed extended writing task I favoured. Students got to explore their understanding of the topic content drawing upon their understanding of cause, consequence and significance.

The feedback sheet looked like this, to feedback I used one colour highlighter to identify successes and another for next steps to work on during feedforward time.

This was then followed by the English Civil war and a mystery inquiry on why did Parliament turn against the King? We finished the topic with a look at modern day.

Students came away with a thorough understanding of how and why parliament and governance has developed.

If you’d like the resources as well for the topic, get in touch. I’ve magpied a variety of resources from a range of free sources such as the UK governments education pages so don’t want to publicly share them.

Hope you find the ideas of some use.
