Ages 14 to 16
Post-it Notes are a cheap and useful way to revisit vocabulary. Give each pupil two Post-it Notes near the end of the lesson.
Ask them to write 10 words they have learned during the lesson, swap the Post-it Note with their neighbour and read out their neighbour's words.
Then ask pupils to stick the Post-it Note under their chair and, on their new Post-it Note, write as many of the words as they can remember, including the original words they wrote. Many pupils can remember 20 words this way, and those who can't are eager to try.
