Findings There was observed improvement in the willingness of pupils to attempt questions that require the use of formulas. During the starter activity students rated how confident they were to attempt the 4 GCSE Physics questions. The average score was 2.75/5. This increased by 32 % to 3.62/5 at the end of the lesson. Looking at the starter questions 6 of the 8 (75%) students attempted them. This increased to 100% in the plenary. Only 2 (25%) students attempted all 4 questions in the starter activity. This increased to 5 (62.5%) students in the plenary activity. Next steps
