Beat The Clock is a revision activity designed to review a range of topics within a unit. Pupils have up to 5 minutes to complete a targeted skill and demonstrate the correct, fundamental understanding needed to be successful for an assessment. The task is designed to take 40-60 minutes (depending on ability) and is normally completed independently or in pairs. This resource is best executed on A3.

Crack the Code is an activity designed to revise topics by breaking them down into 4 individual tasks. The summary of each task will result in a 4-digit number needed to open a safe and reveal a prize (we use a standard electronic safe). The task is designed to take 40-60 minutes depending on group sizes and ability.

Quick Questions is an assessment activity designed to review a range of different topics within a unit. Each assessment has clearly sectioned headings to support targeted skill intervention and problem solving questions at the end to add exam challenge. A single sided and double sided copy has been included to allow for extra space when writing methods. The task is designed to take 30-60 minutes depending on group sizes and ability.

Revision Circus: Basic Algebra (like terms, expanding, solving) - with solutions

This revision activity is designed to get small groups of pupils moving between different tasks and reviewing their understanding of a topic. The pupils divide a page (A4) into 4 sections, each headed with the title of a challenge. Each station has a differentiated worksheet, rule card, and answers to be used to review at the end of the allocated time. 6-8 minutes is given for pupils to practice the questions. The rule card is there to be used as a ‘hint’ and support the task – trading for this (tokens/lives etc) would add a competitive twist. 1 minute to review follows and then the group moves to the next station. The task is designed to take 30-40 minutes allowing for discussion at the end (useful when identifying last minute considerations/misconceptions before an assessment)
