Y11 Revision Board Display

I went into school today for a couple of things. One was to check the new Desktop PC that was being put into my room synced up to my IWB still (it does) and the other was to put up a new revision display board for the benefit of my Y11s.

I've been putting together a few new posters and some pictures based on the popular 'meme' images that seem to float around the Internet. I tweeted a few of these images out (see below) yesterday as I was creating them and they seemed to go down well. There's a link at the bottom of this post where you can download all of those that I created/found on the web.

In addition to the images, I created a few posters in the style of the USA posters you find on University noticeboards etc where there are tear off slips to take away. I decided to use this style to create a few revision website posters so students can rip them off and take them with them to remind them of the web address/be able to scan a 'takeaway QR Code' to use. I created 3 of these: 1 for my YouTube Channel (mrcollinsmaths), 1 for the school's VLE, where I have a folder of resources for them to use, and 1 for the Pearson revision apps I am trialing (future blog post to follow).
I've also then put on a few quotes that I like and other useful information as to the dates of their examinations, mymaths password/login details etc etc.

Here's how the display looks...

The only thing missing is a 'Y11 Revision Board' title/banner that I forgot to print out (this'll go at the bottom of the display).

Here are the images that I tweeted out yesterday...

 Ace Ventura themed poster
This image appears loads on social media sites - this is one of my favourite posters I created.
 I really like this pie chart I found off the web.

I saw a similar cat picture with this slogan, but it was a bit blurry so I found another (equally funny) cat pic and used the same text.

  1. Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you! This VOQT ( very old qualified teacher) needed some inspiration to pep up the 'countdown to exams' display. Useful but lighthearted. I just have to hope we have a working colour printer!
