Year 7 New Starters
Have you got a favourite lesson you always use with a new year 7 class? I always wanted their first lesson to be fun, exciting, challenging whilst not being too hard or too easy. I was never quite sure of what a new class were capable of so wanted a lesson which would give me some indication of their ability. I always spent the first few lessons doing a variety of investigations and open-ended tasks, easy enough for the more nervous student to make a start but open-ended so the more eager and enthusiastic could flourish and show me what they could do.
The STEM centre's elibrary contains a number of useful tasks. I have put some of them together in this list.
