AQA B1.4, B1.5 and B1.6 Structured Revision

(0)
Pupils start by answering a set of questions (the powerpoint refers to Showbie codes that I get my class to use for revision at home before the lesson, but this slide can just be deleted if you don't use this). Pupils will then be directed onto a revision path, depending on how many questions they get right from the starter. Each path is made up of approximately 6 tasks that are each meant to last about 5 minutes. At the end of the activities, pupils will then complete a 25 minute test to see how well they have progressed in the revision lesson. Both red (easier) and green paths have been included, along with the answer sheets so that pupils can self assess.
