Revision practice for 11+, Year 5 or Year 6.
Simple areas and perimeters of squares and rectangles; last question is a little more tricky and involves thinking about the area of a rectangle and what a square would look like with the same area.

Adventure game in which students answer KS3 circle questions in order to rescue a princess. Teacher notes and answers are provided. There are 5 sections, each with 2 topics. They have 4 attempts at each topic, if they get all 4 wrong, the game ends and they will have to start again. The 5 sections are: parts of a circle, circumference, area, reverse questions: given circumference, find diameter and radius; given area, find radius and diameter. Go to my profile page to see the GCSE version including arc length and sector area and check out my other games.

These are homework sheets which also contain a QR code to a tutorial video if the students require. I have used similar before and parents (and children) have found the QR code very useful and should avoid the "I don't get it" excuse as they can get help via the QR code. The tutorials have been made using the app Explain Everything if you are interested. Topics covered include angles (line, point, triangles, polygons, parallel lines), perimeter and area (rectangles, triangles, trapeziums, circles), surface area of cubes/cuboids, construction. Each one comes with answers too.

KS3 adventure game in which students answer perimeter, area, surface area, and volume questions in order to explore space. PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. Choose to explore Triangulum, which has easier questions on area of a parallelogram and a triangle, perimeter and area of a composite shape made from rectangles, surface area and volume of a cuboid. Then when completed, choose to explore Andromeda, which has more difficult problems involving perimeter of a rectangle and area of a triangle, area of a trapezium, surface area and volume of prisms. At the end there is an analysis of the understanding of the topics. Go to my profile page and check out my other games.
