Make your own graded GCSE shape questions

Revision shape activities for my Year 11 Foundation class to remind them what they need to learn and to get them to continue to think about how questions might be asked in their exam.

They can be downloaded here from TES if you would like a copy.

International Pi Day 2014 with Year 8

Firstly we listened to "The Circle Song" and filled in the missing lyrics.

Then we measured the circumference and diameter of items, put them into a spreadsheet and looked at their ratio.

Next we spent 20 minutes on the internet researching Pi.

We followed this up with Pi Plenary Plates.

A bit of Pi Dingbats (Say what you see!) took us nearly to the end of the lesson.

... and finally we ate a lot of Pi -es .....

....and looked forward to next year!
