I made a couple of different (albeit very similar) maths displays using a backdrop of Super Mario. One at University and one at the school I work in. Photos are below. The files I created to make these displays are on the links here and here You’ll also need to purchase the background paper or […]

This would take a lot of work, but you could get it done in one lesson with a whole class behind you. Check out Clarissa Grandi’s impressive effort:

Finally got round to kitting out my training room. Phew! Starting from And finishing with… And my office… This one isn’t quite finished…

As you probably noticed, I’ve carried out a substantial update to this site over the last few days. I thought I should probably highlight the big changes in a post: 1: GCSE Resource Searching I’ve significantly sharpened the search facilities on the site.

Not something I openly share on my CV or twitter profile, but there you have it. It makes a cool display, and, geekily, can be arranged into a triangle. My favourite on the list […]

I’ll be reposting these over the next month as I think they’re still useful to schools embarking on the new Computer Science course] Here’s a nice Python lesson. I’ve written some very basic code that recreates the […]
