Edexcel GCSE Business exam technique

(0)
A detailed PowerPoint explaining how students should approach the questions in the theme 1 and 2 exams. There is exam technique, sentence starters, real questions and maths examples for the student to have a go at. There is also a worksheet students can use to help them understand how to apply context. They can put the real business’s name in the middle of the sheet and then use the headings to understand ways to add context throughout their work.

Entrepreneurs and risk & reward PowerPoint and game

(0)
A PowerPoint introducing students to entrepreneurs, enterprise and the concept of risk and reward. There’s a fun game where students are given a range of choices each round and must decide what decision to make before you reveal if their risk has paid off. (you can print the ppt slide to give to students to track their financial progress)
EdExcel GCSE Business Theme 1 unit tests

EdExcel GCSE Business Theme 1 unit tests

(0)
A set of 4 tests I have put together using questions from old exams and the new spec specimen materials. Each can be used to assess the learning of students at the end of each topic. A lot of them are multiple choice questions too from the old unit 1 papers so you can get the students to mark those sections to make your life easier! There are 4 exams (I only created 1 exam for unit 1.1. and 1.2 as they are quite short). This download includes: 1.1. and 1.2. test: Enterprise and spotting a business opportunity (30 marks) 1.3 test: Finance (45 marks) 1.4 test: Making the business effective (46 marks) 1.5 test: Understanding external influences (44 marks)
GCSE Business franchises full lesson and resources

GCSE Business franchises full lesson and resources

(0)
My students’ favourite lesson! Included in this download is a detailed PowerPoint explaining the concept of franchises, a video clip, exam questions, and the most fun bit, an activity where students are given a budget and are allowed to set up their own business. They get to build a physical shop (see picture!) going it alone as a sole trader or as a franchise, receiving the full building and equipment they need to create their shop. Once they have built their shops, there is a simulation where scenarios are given and the students record their profits depending if they chose to be a sole trader or a franchise. There is enough materials and resources here to teach this over a number of lessons- is great fun!

Business Enterprise project booklet

(2)
This is a booklet of tasks I created to run a Business young enterprise event with students in primary school and Y7. It involved students working towards a bake sale, considering all the stages along the way, including branding, marketing, finance etc. There is enough tasks here to complete over a number of lessons.

Adambrett70Adambrett70

Forms of ownership lesson: Introduction to sole traders, partnerships, LTDs and PLCs

(0)
A PowerPoint and resources to introduce students to the different forms of ownership. The PowerPoint has notes, video links, tasks and an exam question. There are two worksheet tasks, one is a deed of partnerships students can draw up in groups (fun activity to think about how they might split work/profits etc.) and a sheet that can be printed in A3 where students can summarise the key features of each form of ownership. Enough resources for 2 or 3 lessons.

Adambrett70Adambrett70

Edexcel GCSE Business theme 1 revision PowerPoint task

(0)
A PowerPoint task that students can use as a revision lesson in a computer room or can be set as homework. There are questions/tasks for topics 1.1-1.5. Once students have completed all the tasks, they can then print them off 4 slides a page and cut them up as revision cards.
Revenue, costs and profits full lesson and activity
Adambrett70Adambrett70

Revenue, costs and profits full lesson and activity

(0)
A full set of resources for students to be taught the topic of revenue, costs and profits. There is a PowerPoint to introduce them to the topic (you’ll need some post-its), a worksheet to demonstrate their understanding and a game they can play in groups (My group love this game- they get very competitive!) For the game: each round, the team decide on the selling price and how many products they will make, they then hand the sheets into you. Put the sheets in ascending order of cheapest to dearest and place orders appropriately (e.g. 2,4,6,8,10)- then hand the sheets back and the students calculate their profit and decide if they should alter the strategy for the next round- the team with the highest profit after 4 rounds wins! A great fun lesson and a nice lesson to lead into cashflow.

Edexcel GCSE Business revision competition

(0)
A great fun revision quiz to consolidate students knowledge of Edexcel GCSE Business topics. Students work in small teams with white boards and at the end of each round, hold their answers up. You can then track their scores on the white board- my group loved this and got very competitive!
Hunger Games Literacy Project Book

Hunger Games Literacy Project Book

(0)
This is a resource book I designed when working with a small intervention group of students in Y8/9 who needed to accelerate their literacy skills. It’s based upon the Hunger Games film, where each week students watch a small portion of the film and then complete a literacy task based upon this. It’s designed to take 10 weeks/sessions. My students absolutely loved it and once tested again, had demonstrated an improvement in their reading age- a great resource.
Organisation charts and  communication full series of lessons and activities

Organisation charts and communication full series of lessons and activities

(0)
A fantastic set of resources to teach organisation charts and communication. There is a PowerPoint to explain all the key concepts and a range of activities. When students come into the lesson, give them a job role card for ‘Jack’s restaurant’ which will get them interested for later in the lesson. Once you’ve discussed how a basic hierarchy looks, take them outside (or wherever there is space!) and ask them to create a human hierarchy to represent the restaurants (give them string to represent the lines of command)- I then give the owner sentences/commands which they must pass through the chain of command through Chinese whispers- this let’s them see some of the problems of tall structures (and is usually very funny!) you could also task them with creating a new organisational structure/restructuring. There is a task to teach the key vocab that can be used as a treasure hunt where you put the definition sheets up around the room/hall and they have to find them all and complete their sheet. There is also a worksheet task for them to consolidate their knowledge. My students loves this lesson and it’s a great, practical way for them to learn the topic.
International trade and protectionist policies

International trade and protectionist policies

(0)
A lesson and fantastic activity to teach students about international trade, tariffs, quotas, trade blocs and subsidies. There is a game where students work in groups and represent a country, calculating how much they can produce and sell steel for. Each round you (the UK) buy from the cheapest team and protectionist policies are gradually introduced so they can see the impact it has on sales. The PowerPoint includes a range of tasks and activities and can be used over a number of lessons.
Methods of production: Job, batch and flow. Full lesson resources and game

Methods of production: Job, batch and flow. Full lesson resources and game

(0)
A great fun way to teach production methods. Students are put into teams, representing either job, batch or flow. They must create shapes using their method of production and then sell them onto the teacher (the buyer) in the time given. This is then recored on the spreadsheet which you can project so the class can see who’s winning. It’s great fun and really helped my students understand and remember the advantages and disadvantages of each production method.
