Starters and Plenaries

The starters and plenaries contained in this collection have each featured in my teaching over the last 7 years and are some of my favourites (they didn’t all originate in my head and I have connected to the creator wherever I can). Many of them are interchangeable as starters or plenaries.

As with any learning, I will continue to update the collection (adding to the evidence side of things) and tweaking activities but if you have other activities you think should be in my collection then please feel free to share them with me!
