Class Quiz Leaderboard

(0)
You can use this resource with any subject and key stage. The excel document helps you to RAG students test/quiz scores, see cumulative scores and nominate a gold, silver and bronze winner after a topic/term/year. I often have students peer assess then call out results during the register. There is enough space for 30 students and 20 quizzes. The document automatically colours codes scores - red=1-3, yellow=4-6, green=7-10 to show understanding. Also helps to plan intervention with student flagged as 'red'. If students are absent the box remains blue.

GCSE Religious Studies Environmental & Medical Issues Homeworks

(0)
A series of homeworks ready to use for Edexcel's Unit 8. Religion & Society based on Christianity & Islam. Perfect to hand out in class or to upload to platforms such as show my homework. In each homework students must correctly match up the answers with the corresponding question. There is also an answer sheet for teachers. In the lesson due in we then complete a 10 question class quiz (same homework Q's but without notes) and collect in the scores. We have found this has a big impact - lower ability students simply learn the facts., higher ability must match them up - differentiate the homework! You can also view the class quiz leaderboard I have uploaded as this can be used alongside the homeworks/quizzes and add a competitive element to even homework/fact learning! L1 homework questions/answers are marked using the first ten and then second ten to fit in with how the scoreboard works however. I will be adding a few more questions from this topic - even if you get the resource you can get the additions.
