#### Maths Key Words Memory Game

A weekly bell activity. The slide is displayed as students enter the classroom. Students have 30 seconds to 1 minute after the bell to remember as many of the key words as they can. When the time is up, students have 2 minutes to write as many of the words as they can in the back of their book. The slide is then displayed again and the students self-assess, checking spellings and correcting where appropriate. As an extension students can be asked to write definitions of the key words too.

#### BOGGLE - Form Time Literacy

A powerpoint slide for each week of the school year. Used weekly in form time as a competition in teams. Students find as many words as they can from the boggle tiles. Spelling is a focus. Students also aim to get the longest word.

#### Surds MAGIC BOX ACTIVITY

A differentiated activity that gets students out of their seats. A change from worksheet activities. Print each of the PDFs on the appropriate coloured paper. There are 12 different questions in each set. You may need to copy enough for each student to complete all the questions (just in case).
How I use it: Students complete a RAGB differentiated activity to enable them to self-assess and select the appropriate colour to start on (example slide included). They then go to the 'magic box' with that colour label, pick out a card, take it back to their desk, stick it in their book, and answer the question. When they have answered 3 questions they self-assess using answers provided (usually turned upside down next to the appropriate magic box). If they get all 3 correct they can move onto the next colour box, or alternatively can decide to complete the remaining 3 questions in that colour for further practice. If they get any wrong, they MUST seek help from a peer or the teacher to understand why. They then complete the remaining 3 questions and avoid making the same mistakes again.
The magic boxes are labelled Red, Amber and Green. I ALWAYS have blue extension activities available for any student who completes the Green activity and needs to be challenged further (usually exam or problem solving questions).

#### Multiplication Grid (Missing Values)

A powerpoint slide for each week of the school year. Multiplication grid, with missing values so students have the challenge of working backwards. This is used weekly with my classes. Timed, 5 minutes to complete as much as they can. Students try and beat their time/progress each time. LA students spend some time writing out the times tables they struggle with under the grid before the timer starts; HA students complete the grid and then write out their 11-15 times tables underneath.

#### Half Termly Hegarty Maths Booklets

Structured half termly Hegarty Maths homework booklets. There are versions populated with clip numbers (we use these with Y7&8, the clip numbers align with our curriculum). There are also blank versions (we use these with Y9&10). The number of weeks in each booklet aligns with our term dates.

#### Scrabble Key Words (Literacy)

A powerpoint slide I have used at the end of a lesson/topic as a short plenary to emphasise key words from a lesson/topic. Students list the key words from the lesson/topic and calculate the total score for each word using the scrabble tiles displayed. They then compare their words/scores with their neighbour.

#### Fact Sheet - Linear Sequences

Linear Sequences - Revision sheet/knowledge organiser/fact sheet.
Information heavy, so currently used laminated in classrooms as a reference resources for revision and guided student practice.

#### RAGB Exit Ticket Resources

I produced these resources to use RAGB self/peer-assessment in the classroom in light of the journey towards 'life without levels'. They're used in many different ways:
Exit Tickets:
Option 1 - Each students has an exit ticket with their name on it, and the end of a lesson/topic they place their exit ticket in the appropriate wallet/basket (RAGB).
Option 2 - Students decide which colour they are (RAGB) and complete the plenary activity on the board for that colour (on the correct colour blank exit ticket). They stick this in their book and the starter for the next lesson is the class peer-assessing someone else's exit ticket and deciding what colour they need to start on for the lesson.
Let's Assess:
I use this slide as a short plenary, students decide whether they are a Novice, Apprentice, Practitioner or Expert (usually after an activity that has been differentiated as RAGB). They write which they are and copy the statement relating to each 'role' in green pen underneath their work. There is a version with Polish translations because I have some students in my class who require that additional support to be fully involved in the assessment activity.
I also have RAGB trays and often get students to put their book into the appropriate tray. I then use this to formulate a seating plan for the next lesson. Seating plans change often in my classroom depending who are the 'Experts' and 'Novices'.
There are more resources linked to the RAGB system, including magic box activities and differentiated worksheets etc. I'll post these in due course.

#### Multiplication Grid

A powerpoint slide for each week of the school year. Multiplication grid, used weekly with my classes. Timed, 5 minutes to complete as much as they can. Students try and beat their time/progress each time. LA students spend some time writing out the times tables they struggle with under the grid before the timer starts; HA students complete the grid and then write out their 11-15 times tables underneath.

#### Introduction to Trigonometry MAGIC BOX ACTIVITY

A differentiated activity that gets students out of their seats. A change from worksheet activities. Print each of the PDFs on the appropriate coloured paper. There are 6 different questions in each set. You'll need to copy enough for each student to complete all the questions (just in case).
How I use it: Students complete a RAGB differentiated activity to enable them to self-assess and select the appropriate colour to start on (example slide included). They then go to the 'magic box' with that colour label, pick out a card, take it back to their desk, stick it in their book, and answer the question. When they have answered 3 questions they self-assess using answers provided (usually turned upside down next to the appropriate magic box). If they get all 3 correct they can move onto the next colour box, or alternatively can decide to complete the remaining 3 questions in that colour for further practice. If they get any wrong, they MUST seek help from a peer or the teacher to understand why. They then complete the remaining 3 questions and avoid making the same mistakes again.
The magic boxes are labelled Red, Amber and Green. I ALWAYS have blue extension activities available for any student who completes the Green activity and needs to be challenged further (usually exam or problem solving questions).

#### Maths Literacy Word Scramble

Bell activity used weekly with my classes. Students unscramble the key words for the topic. Usually linked to learning objectives/outcomes that they highlight during lessons. Literacy focus, with students discussing what the key words could be and their definitions. (5-10 minute settler activity).
