Only a matter of time till the next exam series and I decided to build in mini-revision to each lesson between now and then. Hence the birth of Number Loving’s differentiated exam warm up resources for both Higher and Foundation students.
Set 1 of the higher exam warm up exercises can be downloaded from here
Foundation; Warm Up F SET 1, Warm Up F SET 2, Warm Up F SET 3, Warm Up F SET4
Higher; Warm Up H SET 1, Warm Up H SET 2, Warm Up H SET 3, Warm Up H Set 4
***Please note these do not reflect the new 9-1 curriculum!! ***
Each set has five warm ups designed to be used in each lesson for that week. As always these are differentiated by colour indicated by the post-it notes; red (easiest), amber (medium), and green (more difficult). The topics remain the same, for example on the foundation set 1, day 1 shown above you will see the green question about missing angles in isosceles triangles. This bottom left hand question is always about isosceles triangles in set 1.
Display one on the board at the beginning of each lesson, giving pupils a small copy to complete as soon as they arrive to class.
I hope you find these resources useful in the lead up to exams!
My Year 11 boys enjoyed these this morning. I projected them and they came and put post-it notes on the board with their solutions. there are only 7 of them so it meant they could look at each others solutions and question each other if they didn’t agree
This is a really good idea! I too project them but hadn’t thought of post it notes for the solutions! Thank you!
We have used them one a day as settlers at the start of lessons in the run up to exams, and they’ve worked well!
Thank you for sharing this – it sound like a fantastic idea. I know I am 2 years late but would you be so kind as to update the link for the above resources … I could not find them on the main site.
Thank you for all your fantastic work my classes love them 🙂
I am not sure what has happened there, unfortunately because we are in the process of making changes and updates I can not upload them to the existing site.
If you leave a comment with your email address (which I will not post) I can email you the exam warm up resources?

I’m really interested in this resource also – could you send me a copy please?
I’m trying to encourage my Year 11s to start revising now, albeit in small doses!
Just emailed you back, let me know how you get on!
