Geography Starters

Starter activities can be invaluable to you as a teacher. They help you to achieve one or more of the following:

  • Engage the pupils as soon as they enter the room, preventing instances of boredom that can lead to poor behaviour.
  • Set the tone for the rest of the lesson. The pupils have engaged in work right from the start.
  • Demonstrate your expectations of the pupils and set a routine. As soon as the pupils enter your classroom they will start work.
  • Recap the main ideas or key words from the previous lesson.
  • Pass on any general geography ideas or skills that you otherwise don’t get time to teach.
  • Get the pupils brains going and instil some motivation.
  • Challenge the pupils in a fun way that makes them look forward to the next one.
  • Challenge the pupils against one another in an enjoyable way.
  • Give yourself the chance to get ready anything you might need for the lesson, or take the register.

Geography Starters is a set of starter activities – crosswords, puzzles, wordsearches, etc – designed for pupils at KS3. It is provided in a photocopiable format so that sheets can be copied and given out to pupils as required – and obviously re-used as much as you wish. Answer sheets are provided.

Raising grades at A-Level and IB French

If there is one thing that can readily take a student up a grade it is vocabulary.

Which is why we have produced a resource pack which covers a wide range of French language exercises, which aim to reinforce and expand vocabulary.

The worksheets provide students with valuable language and reading practice. The resource also contain the necessary words and phrases that students need to speak and write confidently and with authenticity.

They can be used in class or as homework tasks. Model answers are also included for each page.

The vocabulary and language tasks can also be used by teachers as benchmark tests to monitor their students’ progress throughout the A-Level and IB French course.

A grand total of 19 different language points are covered, including:

  • Les définitions
  • Les synonymes
  • Les homonymes
  • Les antonymes
  • Les expressions idiomatiques avec les nombres
  • Les expressions idiomatiques avec les parties du corps
  • Les expressions idiomatiques avec les couleurs
  • Les erreurs courantes en français
  • Les faux-amis
  • Les niveaux de langue
  • Le langage de la rue
  • Les paronymes

  • Les prépositions
  • Les conjonctions de coordination
