GCSE Takeaway Homework in Maths

A great idea for takeaway homework in Maths (the picture is from the Maths corridor – just outside the Maths office). Here is the creator, Rebecca, explaining why and how this works:

“Whole reason for it is to provide as much support for yr11 as possible and promote the pupils use of PLCs. Yr 11 teachers are using 4 weekly assessments to provide a ‘live’ update on PLCs, during intervention sessions pupils are encouraged to bring their PLCs and choose the topics showing as Amber or red. We are hoping to motivate and put a degree of responsibility in their hands. PLCs are also on display in their classrooms alongside a grade tracker for each class. 
Response so far has been positive and provided lots of talking points and dare I say competitiveness!!!! (Especially the boys!)
These are just the grade C and D topice – I just need to find space for all the other grade topics!!!!”
Thanks Rebecca and Maths.
