FULL UNIT R065 - Cambridge National in Enterprise & Marketing NEW!

(1)
Don't buy if you already have R065 resources from me, this is EVERY resource joined together in one discount purchase for the FULL R065 unit. Updated resources July 2019. These resources are NOT EDITABLE so they reach you as intended by me. They are, however, top quality and checked against the full specification, so diversions/changes to the content are not encouraged. Some parts are also useful for teaching R064 LO1, LO2 and LO4 (these are labelled), so this is real value for money. All 5 tasks are included for R065. for teaching. Many of these resources can also be printed or shared with students for revision for their R064 exam, so this is real value for money. **Important ... these lessons are for teaching the theory and then task setting for R065. When set, task outlines come DIRECTLY from the OCR assignment, without adaptation. It is not permitted for teachers to give too much guidance to students. These lessons DO NOT include writing frames, additional guidance or additional support. This is expressly stipulated in the specification and followed to the letter by these resources. They are, however, IMMENSELY useful for the delivery of both units and require you to PLAN NOTHING!!

Creative iMedia R081 (Cambridge National Exam Unit) FULL Revision Booklet - 50 pages!

(1)
This is the digital download version of my R081 revision booklet - it is NOT a digital version of my professionally printed revision guide, please email printedresources@outlook.com to enquire about that resource separately. This resource covers ALL your students will need to revise for their R081 Pre-Production Skills Exam for the Cambridge National iMedia course (J807, J817, J827), and I’ve cross referenced the content with the 2017 exam paper to ensure ALL elements are covered in depth. 50 pages includes 12 revision activities. Also useful for a teaching resource to display on the board AND, as a bonus, content is also relevant for other units in the course too - when teaching Visualisation Diagrams etc. Font is large enough to allow you to print on A6 and use as revision cards too! Enjoy.

(1)
This 9-page booklet is mapped against OCR GCSE Business Studies J204. This resource includes a printable PDF version AND a PowerPoint version that learners can complete and submit online, via Google Classroom etc. Answers included in separate PDF document! Activities on: What is Marketing / the 4 P’s Market Research (Primary/Secondary) Market Research (Create a Questionnaire) Market Segments / Target Markets Price & Pricing Strategies Product Life Cycle Methods of Promotion / Changes in modern promotion methods (social media etc.) Market Data GREAT FOR HOMEWORK! If you set one page each week, that’s more than enough for a half term. The pages also act as a good discussion point for a starter in the following lesson too (win, win!). To REDUCE MARKING - there’s the smallest space for teachers to put 4 ticks to assess each homework. Low stakes, low work-load marking.

(0)
Fully resourced lesson, including handouts, to introduce learners to Product Differentiation; part of the theory required for LO3 of the R064 exam unit for the Cambridge National in Enterprise & Marketing course. This resource FULLY covers 3.3 of the R064 specification. You should also check out 3.1 and 3.2 for LO3 - this resource is suitable without these, but would flow nicely after delivering the product lifecycle and extension strategy sections. Enjoy!

Python Programming - Lesson 4 - Boolean Logic & If Statements - FULLY RESOURCED LESSON!

Python Programming - Lesson 4 - Boolean Logic & If Statements - FULLY RESOURCED LESSON!

(0)
THIS RESOURCE USES PYTHON VERSION 3. There are subtle differences between version 2 and 3, I believe. It's free to download though, so maybe update your systems. This is the 4th lesson in the series of my new resources on Python Programming. I'm teaching this to low ability year 9, though I know my higher ability year 7 would love it and I've also seen Python used within some primaries. It's suitable for any novice programming teacher (like me!). This lesson introduces Boolean logic and writing if statements in Python. The lesson is fully resourced and will last at least a full hour, if not longer. If you're an absolute beginner, this is ideal. Just read it through and print before teaching - that's it! Look out for my other Python programming resources as part of this series. Enjoy. ...look in bundles if you're buying more than one though, there's some discounts to be had there!

Les Magasins (Shops) - A la ville - In town – Dominoes Game & PPT display - KS2 or KS3 French MFL

(0)
---This resource is similar to the match up resource, so don't buy if you've already invested in that resource!--- Ideally suited to KS2 or KS3 French lessons, though would be equally good for KS4 lower abilities. This resource introduces French names of nine common places in town (shops) in a PowerPoint show. As always, masculine and feminine nouns are colour coded throughout the resource. The PowerPoint would be equally useful for classroom display. You could even print on A5 and laminate for a keyword wall or print four to a page for flash cards. Alongside the PowerPoint is a 'dominoes' game and instructions included. Printing and laminating this means it can be used over and over. Enjoy.
R064 Exam Preparation Booklet & Teacher PowerPoint (Cambridge National in Enterprise & Marketing)
brad-ashleybrad-ashley

R064 Exam Preparation Booklet & Teacher PowerPoint (Cambridge National in Enterprise & Marketing)

(3)
Check the preview video before buying! Specifically written for the R064 unit of the Cambridge National in Enterprise & Marketing Course (J819). This resource focuses on EXAM TECHNIQUE and less on the theory required for the exam. How do you answer a long question? What does analyse want students to do? How do I get three marks for a question that just wants ONE advantage? etc. Are you looking to get your students EXAM READY for their R064 paper in January or June? This booklet has been designed to go through the styles of questions students will be asked. It gives hints and tips and guides students through all of the common styles of questions they’ll be faced with in their R064 exam. The booklet has questions for students to try and the teacher PowerPoint guides students through each style of question. As a recap. there’s a sheet which looks at the key words used in the exam questions where student should note their own tips for the exam - an ideas (answer) sheet is also provided to go through with learners or to give to them for their revision. This is PERFECT if you’re running a revision class close to the exam date, or if you want students to get on independently you could easily provide the PowerPoint for them on a shared drive or printed out to accompany their booklet. Enjoy.

Mean Average WHOLE lesson! PowerPoint, Worksheet & Answer Sheet - KS2/3 Maths

(0)
NEW! See a video preview of part of this resource below! Reading the description will help you see if this is suitable for your students' ability. I would say, however, that this resource is ideally suited to upper KS2 / lower KS3. This resource is a FULL lesson which introduces Mean Average. All four averages lessons are listed separately OR as one short unit of work at a discounted price, just check my other resources! The PowerPoint goes through what mean average is/how it's calculated. It then has two examples that can be done with your class (teacher led) - all answers are on the PowerPoint too. After each of the teacher led examples is one that students need to try themselves (these are labelled 'try it' on the PowerPoint). These are at the top of the worksheet. Students could try these, with help if needed - this could even be done is pairs. Finally, there's an independent task that has ten examples for students to calculate. These include numbers in the thousands, so differentiation by task is possible. Some answers include decimals. An answer sheet is provided for the teacher too. The lesson is reviewed by students feeding back at the bottom of their handout. All images are either royalty free or made by myself (those coins took some work!). Enjoy ;-)

Work Plans Exam Style Questions - Creative iMedia (R081 AND Coursework Units!)

(0)
Double sided sheet of questions relating to Work Plans for the Cambridge National in iMedia course. 15 marks in total - ideal for a test in ANY unit of the course, though naturally best suited to the R081 exam unit. Question 6 gets learners to create their own Work Plan; this won’t be asked in the exam from scratch, but always best to deliver a worst case scenario during exam preparation time! Ideal homework or for use as a short in-class assessment. Includes answers.
Business Ownership Puzzle, Review & Worksheet

Business Ownership Puzzle, Review & Worksheet

(0)
This resource depends on you teaching Business Ownership first (sole traders, partnerships and companies). Students should be given a printed version of the puzzle (the one with two pages). I get them to work in pairs as they can both be cutting at the same time to reduce ‘cutting time’. They both cut out one of the pages then get to work creating a triangle solution by connecting matching statements. There is only ONE way the puzzle will become a triangle correctly, so it’s trial and error but a GREAT task to consolidate learning of Business Ownership topic. I then get learners to stick their puzzles down on A3 paper (two sheets, because it just sticks over one A3 page). Alternatively, you could cut the puzzle and laminate for year on year use. I’ve included the solution. To ensure ALL students can access it, I print the solution on A3 paper and stick it in the corridor. Each pair gets a few chances to go out and take a peek, if needed. Finally, I’ve included a plenary to review the tarsia puzzle and a homework true or false activity on Business Ownership, this might work well as a homework task to see what students have learnt from the puzzle. Enjoy!
