So, in a flash of inspiration as I try to prettify my classroom ready for September I came up with this. A little crowdsourcing of ideas on Twitter and I’ve managed to create a nice little display. Thanks to everyone who gave me inspiration (and taught me a few new words!).
There are close to 60 words in the two files so plenty for an academic year or probably enough to last you the two years with a Key Stage 4 class without repeats. There’s a mix of words they’ll need to know as part of the curriculum alongside some lovely geekery.
I’ve tried to pupil speak the definitions but if you see any glaring errors or typos please let me know in the comments or on Twitter.
You can download the files here.
A tweet from @mathequalslove during the week caught my eye; in it she shared this poster:
I liked the premise so the next day I floated the concept with my Y10 top set via a hastily drawn copy on the board.
I’ve got so many good ideas from Twitter for great displays I decided that this would be the year I made the most of my “learning space” *cringe*. Most of these ideas are magpied from Twitter but I thought I’d bring them all together here for anyone who may have missed them
I tweeted asking for ideas to rejuvenate my tired looking classroom before we start our new academic year on monday (eek!). I had a reply from Jessica Hocking with a great idea about Maths Bunting. I loved how hers look so set about spending half-term sewing in front of the TV… thought it was worth blogging about how I made mine in case any of you want to get crafty!
