Spicy questions


This term I have been experimenting with a different kind of starter for Years 3-6.  

While we are getting ready, giving books out and so on, the children see three "spicy questions" displayed on the board.  Some questions relate to previous lessons and prior learning, to check understanding and perhaps address misconceptions, while others relate the learning that will take place in that lesson.

The more peppers a question has, the "spicier" or more difficult it is.

We discuss the answers, and I click to animate the answers into the PowerPoint slide.

I'm finding the spicy questions useful as a way of "setting the scene" in the lesson.
