Paper folding – booklets

Contact Barbara Sterecki for more information about this technique

Take an A4 sheet fold in both sides, then cut the ‘cover ‘ in half as shown in the photos.

Now write a note in each section to shows students what you want them to think about.

Inside I wrote the question with lots of room for working.

KS4 students found this really helpful in longer QWC questions. 

They thought about:

1) what is being asked of them, 

2) how to approach it ,

3) what maths they had to do,

They had space inside to set out their working and finally a reminder to check they have actually answered the question.
