It’s a disturbing irony that the idea for this blog post originally came to me on the way to work and I’d contrived to forget it by home time! I had to rack my brain to dredge it back up. The same thing sometimes happens with words, which is not a good look for an English teacher. The most embarrassing memory lapse to date was forgetting the word ‘syllable’ in front of Y8.

Becky Driver explains the complicated feelings she has for the science revision tool. Well, what can I say about these resources? I have developed a kind of love hate relationship with this revision material. Why? you may ask. Why the hate? When I started at Twinkl, nearly two years ago, I was given the task of producing a set of GCSE revision mats. The very detailed brief was, make some revision mats! An easy task you may think? Think again. I started to plan how they would be set up: higher, foundation, separate, combined, biology, chemistry, physics, AQA, Edexcel and … Continue reading GCSE Science Revision Mats: A Love / Hate Relationship
