#### Easter treasurehunt using ratio, number, fractions, percentages

This is a fun end of term resource. Your students will cut out the puzzle pieces and put them in the correct order so that the answer from the first clue gives them the next clue until they have solved all the clues and found their treasure (chocolate eggs not included!).
Students will apply their knowledge of ratio, probability, percentages, fractions and number to solve the clues.
This would be a good activity to do in pairs and you could choose to give a small prize for the quickest team or to every team who solve all the clues.
There are two versions of this treasure hunt, an easy version and a harder one with bigger numbers to allow for differentiation. You could also ask extension questions for further challenge, e.g. Fibonacci numbers are briefly introduced and you could ask students to explore this pattern further.

#### Mnemonics for learning students names

Get ready for September by learning these mnemonics for the 100 most popular names of 2004. Most of your new year 7 students will have names on this list (there is considerable overlap with the 2003 list).
We all know that learning students names quickly is key to good classroom management but for many of us it's difficult. By learning these visual mnemonics ahead of time it is much quicker and easier to learn to attach names to faces. Once you have a pre-prepared visual image like "Ben is climbing big ben" you can simply imagine your new student called Ben climbing big ben. Remembering his name is now as easy as remembering this image. Our brains are much better at processing and remembering visual information than names. It makes sense to take advantage of this to learn your students names quickly!
This resource contains a csv file with names in one column and mnemonics in another. Most flash card programs will allow you to import from this format to generate flashcards. For example Anki is free and allows you to import from csv.
These mnemonics are for the 100 most common British names of 2004, helping you to learn your new students names more quickly.

#### Valentine's Venn Mystery with Venn diagrams and probability

This is a Valentine's themed lesson where the students must figure out who sent the mysterious Valentine's Day cards.
There are 18 cards representing different students who might have sent the Valentine's cards. I recommend getting the students to cut out the cards so that they can easily sort and rearrange the cards later as they solve the puzzles. This could be an independant starter.
The included powerpoint presentation works through an example of selecting students which fit the given criteria using Venn diagrams. This starts with a single circle and progresses to three circles so is ideal for students who have not met Venn diagrams before or are not comfortable with them. Each student name starts with a different letter so that it is easy to write the initials up on the board in the correct circles. Alternatively you could have your students bring up one of the cards they have cut out and blue tac it to the correct section of the diagram. I image this as a full class activity although you could have students copy the diagrams to their books and fill them in individually first.
There is also a set of questions for students to solve independently once they have been shown the idea of Venn diagrams. It is possible to solve the questions without using Venn diagrams and so you may want to ask any students who don't intuitively draw the diagrams to use them for some questions. The probability questions at the end will be generally be easier to keep track of by drawing diagrams.
Finally the presentation includes some independant extension activities for students who finish early so that you can help students who need more support.
