Keeping your class engaged with fun and unique teaching resources is vital in helping them reach their potential. On Tes Resources we have a range of tried and tested materials created by teachers for teachers, from pre-K through to high school.
Breathe new life into your lesson plans with our elementary, middle school and high school classroom resources. Whether you’re looking for fun math worksheets or brand new guided reading activities, we have thousands of free and premium resources for you to download. From kindergarten to elementary you’ll find K-5 resources, including phonics worksheets and numeracy games. From middle school through to high school we have everything from Spanish lessons to algebra activities, as well as Common Core-aligned lessons and revision guides for tests.
When these booklets are printed you have 8 theory lessons primarily based on the BBC Bitesize website.
Follow the bitesize online pages and activities and complete the task sheets. Homework can be completed on the homework booklet.
They have been designed to be used without computers and there are enough lessons for 1 every 2 weeks.
Hope they are useful

This resource is aimed at students studying GCSE Computer Science. The worksheet contains a space for students to write down the key definitions for Bitmap image file types. It then provides a space for students to carry out some independant research into common resolutions. It then provides students with 2 image grids which contain strings of binary numbers which must be coloured accordingly in order to produce the associated image. The associated answer document is also included.
This resource is aimed at students studying GCSE Computer Science. The worksheet contains a space for students to write down the main steps required to calculate the file size of a given image file. It then contains 10 questions (3 of which are worked through) that require them to calculate the file size of the image. It also contains the associated answer sheet.
NB: The measurements for KB, MB, GB have been used as multiples of 1000 as per the new 9-1 specifications.
A sound understanding of computing concepts will help students to see how to get the best from systems they use and how to solve problems when things go wrong. This series of lessons will empower students with fundamental computer coding skills to become potential creators of technology, and not limited to users. In addition, they will prepare potential computer science students who would like to study the subject at GCSE level with secure knowledge and computational thinking ability in key stage 2 and 3. This is the introductory lesson, structured in a flexible format to accommodate students with different abilities. It is advisable for students to be taught algorithms in scratch series before moving on to python. There adequate opportunity for students to practise and apply their skills whilst demonstrating/ documenting knowledge and understanding in attached evidence sheets. The lesson structure is simple to follow or teach even if you are not an experienced computer science teacher. This lesson covers the languages, algorithms and computation aspect from the national curriculum for computer science in England and Wales. Students will design, debug, test and discuss and document their own programs. Python Software required to teach this series of lessons can be downloaded from https://www.python.org/downloads/ without cost. Students can take advantage of this opportunity to practise their skills at home. Contact email@example.com for further advice or support.
This resource tests the knowledge of students on ethics, legislation and the workings of computer systems - important units for the Computer Science GCSE. It is split into sections A-E, with each section accounting for a different part of the course.
Marks are given for each question and a cover sheet is included to title the assessment.
The test is worth 59 marks so it is advised that students are allowed upwards of 45 minutes to an hour.
This resource converts between binary, hex and denary. It can be used in a whole class situation on the whiteboard or given to students to use to check their answers to any conversion questions. Useful when teaching binary and hex.
This bundle can be used for students studying GCSE computer science and people who are beginning their a-level computer science course to give them basic knowledge. The bundles contains detailed powerpoints and an approximately 85 page workbook with questions on the specific topics from each section of the specification . Students can make notes and use the powerpoint and use the workbook as a homework or option piece of work as a source of revision which will help strengthen their knowledge in the subject.
I have developed a simpler method for converting numbers:
Binary to denary (and vice versa)
Binary to hexadecimal (and vice versa)
Denary to Hexadecimal via Binary (and vice versa)
By teaching via spreadsheet, it will hopefully enable students to master the conversion process quicker.
This resource uses a spreadsheet to teach binary addition, and then encourages students to do a double-check to ensure that their answer is correct.
By teaching via spreadsheet first, they will get into the habit of adding the 1s and 0s correctly, so that when doing it written, their mind knows the process to follow.
Student worksheet and teacher solution included.
