AfL Fun Plenary Selector - Spinning Plenary Wheel - Students shout "STOP" to choose lesson plenary!

AfL Fun Plenary Selector - Spinning Plenary Wheel - Students shout "STOP" to choose lesson plenary!

NEW! See the video preview of the PowerPoint BEFORE choosing to buy. ALL resources are included and TOP quality. This is an investment and great for new teachers or those that want to increase student engagement. This is my first Plenary Wheel resource - 8 generic plenaries to end ANY lesson. If you like this, why not try the sequel with 8 additional plenary activities? Slide 1 includes a spinning wheel that can be stopped by clicking STOP to choose the plenary for the lesson. Includes a selection of eight plenary ideas (and supporting resources) with an engaging interface to grab students’ attention at the end of a lesson. Interactive, students LOVE shouting STOP to select the plenary activity! Suitable for all subject areas… you may never have to plan a plenary activity ever again, although don’t tell your senior leaders I said that! *Copyright* This took ages to make and code, so please don’t share it too readily! Enjoy the resource - all text is my own (Barnett Education is me!) - images are public domain and all copyright free.

Plenary Selector Wheel VERSION 2! What have I learnt today? 8 generic plenary activities NO planning

Plenary Selector Wheel VERSION 2! What have I learnt today? 8 generic plenary activities NO planning

If you liked the first Plenary Wheel, things just got even better!! Version 2 is here, all new, USE ALONGSIDE VERSION ONE, NOT INSTEAD OF!! All your plenaries will be planned for months to come, if not longer!! See a video preview below BEFORE choosing to buy this TOP quality resource. Interactive, fun and engaging. A perfect end to the lesson! The plenary wheel is a PowerPoint file with a rotating wheel. Ask one of your students to shout STOP to select how the lesson ends. NO PLANNING involved. Just open the file and let your students decide. This wheel is the sequel to my original plenary wheel - it contains 8 NEW PLENARY activities that focus on the question “What have I learnt today”. It’s not a rebrand - so if you want both look for my bundle and then you’ll have SIXTEEN plenary activities - that’s your academic year sorted! The plenaries are: 60 seconds - tell a partner what you’ve learnt in a minute - timers includes. Picture review - draw how you feel/what you’ve learnt - template/handout included (print a bank of these ready!). Emoji review - select an emoji to summarise your learning today - template included if required (black and white or colour). Text message - write a reply to the text on the slide. 4-3-1, my take on the 5-5-1 review - write four sentences then whittle it down to just 1 word to summarise today’s lesson. Handout included, again print a stack ready! Red, Amber, Green - three sentence review of your learning today. Tell me three - answer the three summary questions about today’s learning. Status update - write a social media status to summarise your learning today. Macros must be enabled for the wheel to function, though the plenary activities can still be viewed without the wheel spinning (less exciting!). Enjoy!

EdExcel GCSE ICT Unit 1 (Exam) - Student Revision PowerPoint Topic 1 - Digital Devices

Goes over the main points for topic 1 of EdExcel's GCSE ICT Unit 1 (Living in a Digital World).

If the students press F5 to view as a slide show, each point comes on individually to really help them chuck their revision. Enjoy!

Business Project

Business Project

Exploring the use of ICT in launching a product. We use this for an end of year project, but would also suit KS3 enterprise lessons or PSHE activities. We print the 12 page booklet for learners, they add to this with activities completed on the computer. This would be a good group work activity and could lend itself to some more 'real ICT&' by making audio adverts/video adverts along the same topic.

OCR GCSE Business Studies (J204 - New from 2017) Homework Booklet 1a - Business Activity

OCR GCSE Business Studies (J204 - New from 2017) Homework Booklet 1a - Business Activity

See the video preview before buying! This resource is mapped against OCR GCSE Business Studies J204 for teaching from 2017. However, there's so much cross over between specifications, that it can be used for any Business Studies course. The list of homework topics included in this booklet is below to help you decide if it's for you or not. I don't actually set the tasks in order but, if you were following the spec in order, this would cover topic 1 of Business 1: business activity, marketing and people. Homework sheets on: 1. Entrepreneurs 2. Business Plans 3. Sole traders / Partnerships 4. Limited Companies 5. Business Ownership (liability) 6. Aims and Objectives 7. Stakeholders 8. Business Growth 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 5 ticks to assess each homework. Homework has become such a focus at our place that these booklets have saved my life, but I didn't want them to become a burden on my marking load. More to follow for the rest of the topics within the specification. Enjoy.
