HOW COULD I USE A SKILL DRILL?
That’s entirely up to you! Below are some suggestions though:
• Over a week or two to check progress as you ‘attack’ these topics in lessons
• As a diagnostic tool with a new group
• Set as a homework
• As a starter activity once a week to check skill retention after covering these
WHO IS THIS SKILL DRILL FOR?
This Skill Drill is primarily targeted at Foundation GCSE students aiming for a C. Although few of the included skills in this particular drill are ‘Grade C skills’ in and of themselves, they are still common weaknesses for such students.
ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?
The included student tracker is ideal to allow students to track their own progress on each topic across the 5 drills.
