New curriculum resources

This section of the Inthinking website is devoted to materials that support the new curriculum - that is, the curriculum that will first be assessed in May 2019.

Many of the materials that are here were also relevant in the former curriculum. In addition, over the life of the new curriculum, you will continue to see more teaching ideas, revision work and sample marking in order to enrich and develop your own program.

If as you work through the site you think of something that is missing that you would like to see added, please always feel free to email me at - and I will try to get something on the site as soon as possible.
