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

skills.

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.
