Encourage pupils to use the 5Bs

Make sure pupils don't forget their 4ps
Teach pupils to make it:
Try collecting in just 5 books after every lesson and marking them in detail.
Put questions inside balloons-pupils have to pop the balloon to find the question.
No Hands Up!
Plan differentiated activities around pupils' starting points:
Unistructural-I have one idea about this topic
Multistructural-I have several ideas about this topic
Relational-I can link these ideas
Extended abstract -I can look at linked ideas in a new way
