Revision Grids- Level 4

Whilst visiting the excellent MEDIAN blog by Don Steward, I saw his Practice Makes Perfect resources. These gave me inspiration to create a set of revision resources that were based on levels so pupils could use them to prepare for their assessments.

Allow me to introduce: Revision Grids. The idea is that there is a grid of 20 cells on a page with each cell containing a revision question. Putting the questions in this grid arrangement gives you a lot of options as a teacher for making your revision lessons more fun and engaging. You can use them just as straightforward worksheets for individual or pair work. Alternatively, they can be used as a ‘4 in a line’ game where pupils take it in turns to answer a question and if they get it right they put a coloured counter on the square. First to get 4 in a line wins. This can also work nicely as a whole-class starter or plenary if you have a projector and/or interactive whiteboard.

If you want to promote collaboration and independent learning getting pupils to work in pairs with a textbook as a reference and then coming to you to see how many they have right is a good strategy. Only tell them how many they have right, not which ones so they have to go away and discuss it with other groups to work out where they have gone wrong and what they need to do to correct it.

I am going to create more Revision Grid packs that cover the whole curriculum at a particular level. I have started with level 4 which you can download below. I shall do level 5 and 6 next as this covers the majority of pupils at Key Stage 3 but will eventually do packs for all of level 3 through to E.

If you like them please do pass them on to your teaching friends. I hope you and your pupils enjoy using them and find them helpful for revision.

Watch this space for future Revision Grids at other levels. To be notified of new resources you can subscribe to Great Maths Teaching Ideas by email, Like our Facebook Page, and follow us on TwitterGoogle+ and Linked In.

    I like the idea a lot……but surely the answer to q 17 on sheet 17 should be 1 and not 0.
    If the shape is rotated 360 degrees it will look the same.

    • Quite right! Thanks for spotting this error. I have made the correction and uploaded the revised Revision Grids! The link above should now link to the corrected version. Best wishes, Will

    Thank you so much for this download! I have saved it so that I can use it when needed. I think this is a great idea and so versatile! I will probably borrow the concept to use in other subject areas.

    These are excellent! Very useful. Thankyou for taking the time to share. I really like the “blank” one too so pupils can design their own.

    These are fantastic!! My HA kids love the challenge of them. Any news on the Level 3 version? I’d love to use them across the whole year group x

    Have printed out laminated cut up and made into individual cards. At breakfast each morning daughter picks one and does. She loves it and good revision too. If she struggles with it we work on that question when she comes home from school for 10 minutes. Fun way to revise.

    Would love to see the Level 3 ones too if you ever made them. They others are perfect for my MA and HA. Would be great to have some to help along my LA.
