Consolidation and revision


Consolidation activities give your students the chance to show off the fruits of their – sorry, your – labour, and can be very satisfying. In our revision central area you'll find heaps of creative, innovative and accessible revision resources, perfect for revisiting a topic or refreshing your students' memories. It's a lovely area of the site crammed with resources that are suitable for any time of year.

See our top picks below.

Revision calendar


Use this PowerPoint to guide your students through a month's worth of revision activities. In 'advent calendar' style, choose a number and jump to the allocated revision activity for that day.

N.B. All of our PDF files are free, but we've made the interactives and Word document parts of this resource free too (for a month) so that you can adapt and differentiate them for your classes, as you see fit!

Time to get a bit Blue Peter with this revision activity. Students make and wear their own hats which are colour coded to represent textual features. Finish with a feature dash!

Revision rooms


More of the sticky-back-plastic mentality needed here. This resource is great for visual learners. Students use craft material to create their own 3D room and fill it with symbols, objects and quotations to represent all they need to know about that topic.
