From Oxford University Press **a very helpful email **with some Christmas resources, some more problems to solve and some star decorations to make for your classroom. The **festive Venn diagrams** I referred to in the previous **Christmas post **which has many ideas for Christmas are included too.

**You can find many free resources from OUP here. **It strikes me that higher level GCSE students may appreciate the A Level C1 – C2 Practice on **Quadratic functions**.

The A Level assessments look very useful – collections of exam style questions which include solutions and mark schemes. I always find it useful to have resources like this to use in class. Thank you **OUP!**

Now, staying with the theme of Christmas presents from the examination boards – some clever wording from **AQA here on Better Maths **who can tell us what the student of GCSE past can tell us about GCSE papers yet to come! See **An Early GCSE Maths Christmas Carol on Better Maths**. AQA have very helpfully provided resources on **Exemplar Student Responses for trial of practice papers**. So thank you to **AQA too!
