New RS specifications

ZigZag Education will be providing photocopiable and digital resources for most of the new GCSE and A Level RS specifications, with ranges for learning,
revision and exam practice. We have ambitious plans for a large range of resources, some of which are listed below. Note that we will continue to bring on
new resources throughout the lifetime of the specifications.

Teaching and Learning

  • Course Companions: Comprehensive notes on the course content with questions and activities. (£49–£89 for GCSE; approx. £99 per Component for A Level.)
    First titles available from Summer 2016.
  • Starters and Plenaries: Spec-relevant pick-up-and-teach activities with worksheets designed for kicking off and winding down your lessons (£39–£49).
    First titles available from Summer 2016.
  • Keyword Activities: Variety of activities enabling differentiation, based around key terminology and thinkers (£29–£49). First titles available from
    Summer 2016.
  • Homework Booklets: Photocopiable workbooks (from approx. £39). First titles available from September 2016.
  • Topic on a Page: Concise single-page summaries, ideal as placemats or posters, along with activity versions where students fill in the gaps (from approx.
    £49). First titles available from September 2016.
  • Learning Grids: designed to support weaker learners through the learning phase – especially good for cover lessons or homework (approx. £39). First
    titles available from Christmas 2016.

Revision and Exam Practice

  • Revision Summaries: Concise bullet-pointed notes on the specification content (from approx. £49). First titles available from Easter 2017.
  • Revision Activities: Focused activities to help student work through and engage with all the specification content in the run-up to the exams (from
    approx. £49). First titles available from Easter 2017.
  • eRevision: Online subscription-based interactive activities – great as self-marking homeworks or as a revision programme; students can subscribe
    individually too (from approx. £59+VAT per year)
  • Practice Papers: mock-ready papers with mark schemes (from approx. £49). First titles available from Easter 2017 (possibly earlier for AS).

Specifications

For GCSE we are planning large ranges for:

  • GCSE AQA A
  • GCSE OCR
  • GCSE Edexcel A
  • GCSE Edexcel B

We are planning smaller GCSE ranges for AQA B, Eduqas and WJEC B

For A Level we will be supporting the AQA, Edexcel and OCR specifications, with a small range for Eduqas.

Religions

  • GCSE religions: ZigZag will be providing a wide range of specification-specific resources for Christianity with Islam as a second religion. For the most popular specifications we will also be initially providing small activity packs for those teaching Judaism, Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism.
  • GCSE topics: We plan to support all theme and text options for the four main GCSE specifications.
  • A Level: We plan to support at least the Christianity, Ethics and Philosophy of Religion options.
  • For optional topics/religions, resources will be separate, allowing teachers to buy only what they need.
  • We are open and responsive to requests for other religions to be covered at GCSE or A Level; the more requests we get, the more likely we are to publish
    for your option. Submit requests at http://zzed.uk/RS

Tell us what you’re teaching…

…so we can prioritise development for your spec / religions / topics!
