Starters and Plenaries in Design and Technology are a very important part of a lesson. In my experience, even with the most troublesome class if you have a readymade starter activity ready for them when they come into the lesson, you will be surprised with the silent bliss that will fall upon your classroom, enabling you to take the register or whatever your routine requires. These activities can be used as starters or plenaries to enhance your pupils’ learning whilst having fun in the process!
I have created an e-book which is particularly special as I am going to provide you with something which no one else has done before. True, there are one or two books out there and a few websites with suggestions on activities and you might find some you are already familiar with; however the beauty of this book is I will provide you with the resources you will need to take these straight into your classroom! These activities have been tried and tested and so I know they can work, now you have this special book, they can work for you too!
You can check out the sample of the e-book HERE or get the full version HERE which is being used by student teachers in the University of Brighton Library!
