This is one of my favourite and most used starters, originally created by two maths colleagues at my school (@missfilson and @MissBKearns). It is used to recap the previous lesson or to interleave revision on subject knowledge from previous topics.

Pupils are given pre written questions about a number of different topics or specific to a certain topic, for example women in Nazi Germany, which they answer on wipeboards or in the back of their books.

Another variation introduced is the DIY 5 a Day where pupils create their own questions on a set topic and then test each other on these.

A really fantastic way to embed subject knowledge through low stakes testing – I use it every lesson for Y11 revision across a wide range of topics.
