It occurred to me this morning that I have so many resources that I put loads of time and effort into but since moving schools in September 2016 I no longer use. I thought I ought to start sharing a few more of them.
Now I can’t promise they are any good but they might be a starting point for you.
To start with I’m sharing my Scheme of Work on Exploring England. Whilst the topic is called Exploring England, it looks more at the the United Kingdom as a whole with some exploration of the geography of England.
Lesson 1 explores the differences between the British Isles, the UK, and Great Britain. Students have to locate their location on a global, national and local level.
Lesson 2 explored human and physical features of the British Isles.
Lesson 3 takes a look at the population distribution of the UK and in particular England.
Lesson 4 encourages students to look at migration to the British Isles over time.
Lesson 5 looks at migration in more recent times and the stories of migrants, encouraging students to explore push and pull factors.
Lesson 6 is an an opportunity for some directed improvement and reflection time of any assessed work.
Lesson 7 is the summative assessment for the topic.
Lesson 8 explored symbols of Britishness and encourage students to understand the concept of multiculturalism.
Lesson 9 encourages students to reflect on their knowledge and understanding of England to explore tourism to and within the UK.
Lesson 10 finishes the topic with a look at UK governance.
In addition you will find a learning matrix for the front of student books. Simply highlight the achieved criteria in one colour and the next steps in another. Easy to use and clear for students to identify next steps if asked.

Feel free to use as you will.
Hope you can find some use out of them.
