In particular, ‘Plenaries on a plate’ is a colourful Plenary tool which has the merit of providing the teacher with a selection of different plenaries that require no further preparation. It is mainly intended for KS3 I think but could be used across all key stages.  The teacher asks students to pick a plate/colour.  When the teacher clicks on the chosen coloured plate they are immediately taken to a plenary.  The ideas range from the sensible to the interesting and occasionally to the slightly wacky but the resource is editable so can be tailored.  Some of the ideas require a bit longer to implement but there is zero preparation time required so this is a case of minimum prep maximum output.  If the first plenary is not suitable then simply chose another.  It gives an element of student choice and provides a range of activities so can be used to freshen up lessons.
