I provide a range of free resources covering different areas of teaching and learning. These include The Starter Generator, Plenary producer and the AFL Toolkit. My premium resources focus mostly on stretch and challenge, as well as some on growth mindsets and a new set of books exclusively for teaching assistants, giving them all the tools they need to support learners in the classroom.

The KS3 Science Stretch and Challenge Grid is one of the easiest ways to stretch and challenge the thinking of your students.

The resource combines three separate grids. The first contains 25 subject-specific questions and tasks mapped to the curriculum. The second contains 25 challenging tasks applicable to any area of the curriculum. The third is blank, ready to edit.

Simply print off one of the grids and give copies to your most-able students. You can then challenge them to complete tasks and questions during lessons or as part of their homework. Students can keep track by crossing off challenges as they complete them.

The resource also comes with a set of badges students can collect and tick off as they finish each task or question.

With the KS3 Science Stretch and Challenge Grid you will be stretching and challenging the thinking of your students every time you teach, saving time along the way!

This is perfect, just what I was looking for. Thank you for helping me with my summer planning.

A really interesting novel idea. These could even be printed and stuck in students books to keep track of progress, with the badges linked to the school specific rewards. A useful tool that could be adapted to embed into KS3 schemes to track progress.

An interesting idea... it might be beyond the capabilities of my classes although I hope they surprise me!
