We are very grateful to Gillian Waters for allowing us to share these Civil War resource packs for schools: English Civil War part one English Civil War part 2
Gillian wrote these quite a few years ago now and they were for a previous iteration of the Royal Armouries and an earlier version of the National Curriculum. However, as all good resources, there are rich pickings for teachers.
In part 1 there is material on the Battle fo Leeds in 1643, on Fort Nelson, the Tower of London and Littlecote near Hungerford. In part 2 you will find portraits of Charles I and accompanying notes, comparisons with Tudor monarchs, material on Civil War leaders, information on the Great Chain of Being, inventory source material, decision making cards relating to reasons for joining the war according to status and lots of detail and source material (including partish registers) for the course and impact of the war(s), particularly in Yorkshire.
Definitely worth a good rootle through for resources, teacher knowledge, inspiration!
