My take on The Teacher Toolkit's &'Take Away&'; homework idea.
Students get given this at the start of term. They are expected to select a range of tasks and complete them at their own pace over the term. Each task has a time limit and a 'heat rating&' (difficulty level).
Brilliant because it condenses the work the teacher needs to do over the term in terms of creating meaningful homework opportunities whilst encouraging learner independence. I am really interested to see how my year 8 classes cope with meeting a deadline.

A lesson using characters from Harry Potter to teach students how recognise / use comparatives.
Fairly low ability.
Unfortunately I am unable to upload the video I used but it is easy to make using Windows Media Player and images from the internet.
