Essential skills

Having had a fair bit of success with our year 11 C/D borderline students in the March exam we are now in a position, like many other schools, where we are able to turn our attention to helping our remaining students get that all important C grade. I have put together a series of 5 “Essential skills” worksheets that could be used as a starter activity or as a homework (or in lots of other ways) in order to help keep certain topics fresh in the minds of these students. To make it easier to monitor, track and set targets from, I have kept the order of topics consistent for all of them, however, they do get progressively harder.

Not the most exciting of resources, but a useful addition to all the other great things I’m sure you are doing to help prepare the students at your school.
