Detailed lesson ideas to help you prepare valuable cover work
It is always handy to have a stock of cover lessons up your sleeve, in case you're off sick, going on a course or left in the lurch by a colleague. Good-quality cover work needs to have clear instructions and be plentiful, so that students don't finish it all in five minutes. For the non-maths specialist covering your class, it's also very useful if it comes complete with answers.
With that in mind, here is a selection of the best cover lessons from the Tes Maths community, most of which are ideal for home learning also.
