Key Word Coasters

You will need

– Devise your own ‘key word coasters’ with key terminology
– Printed and possibly laminated

How It Works

The above coaster was designed by a member of staff at The Bulmershe School (R. Paginton) but can be easily redesigned.

Pupils will be issued ‘key word coasters’ for a lesson and these are resources containing key phrases that will be useful during a lesson. For example, within an English lesson key sentence starters and advanced vocabulary may be of use so would be included on a ‘key word coaster’.

When having a debate in a lesson, you could use ‘key word coasters’ with useful debate phrases on to help pupils structure their argument more coherently. The example above is from a languages lesson and this ‘key word coaster’ contains phrases that will help stretch vocabulary in their subject and help pupils be more independent in lessons.


– ‘Key word coasters’ could be differentiated based on ability
– They can be designed for a specific topic or for general use
