    Hi Craig,
    Some advice please,
    What would you teach as a one off lesson to yr7s who have finished the syllabus and just sat their end of year exam if you were being observed.
    Also have you any good resources to teach either sequences or straight line graphs to middle yr 8s again for an observed lesson

      Hi Jo,
      For Year 7s you could look at a rich task like the one I wrote about in Part 9 of my Scheme of Work series. As for sequences or series, just Google “TES Maths Sequences …” followed by whatever it is you are looking for, like card sort, group work, etc. And then ensure you look at adapt it to fit your teaching style, your students, etc. Good resources for one teacher are not necessarily good for another.
      Good luck!
      Craig
