AQA P1 GCSE 9-1 chapter outline with matched extended writing questions and marking grids

AQA P1 GCSE 9-1 chapter outline with matched extended writing questions and marking grids

Included is a chapter outline based on Kerboodle for AQA GCSE 9-1 Physics (P1) The schedule identifies the homework/ extended writing assessment and marking grid which matches each chapter. Included in this pack is all of the extended writing questions and marking grids identified in the schedule. The extended writing question pack includes a past paper extended writing question for GCSE Physics with a marking grid feedback sheet. The marking grid has a space to write what went wells (WWW) and even better Ifs. The grid also contains a SPAG section where the students can be given a grade for the level of SPAG that they have used, and a suggested way of improving their SPAG. The levelled answers are to act as a mark scheme/ model answer. This makes marking specific to the students, provides consistency and saves time. Student feedback from using this model of assessment has been very positive.

Series and Parallel Circuits

Series and Parallel Circuits

Hi, Most of our students find ‘Current Electricity’ as a tough topic. I try my best to enable them to view any concept as simple as possible. This product is the result of one such effort. This resource is a Worksheet based on Series & Parallel Circuits with 6 questions. I tried these questions in my class and I found my learners find the concepts of circuits as ‘a piece of cake’. Try this in your class as well and reinforce their understanding. Answers are included at the end of the product for your kind reference. Kindly share your feedback!

AQA trilogy physics revision paper 1 booklet HT

AQA trilogy physics revision paper 1 booklet HT

I have created a booklet to help y11 revise in preparation for AQA paper 1 physics trilogy. This booklet is aimed at higher tier students. The first sections help the students to become recap units, equations and prefixes. The mind map allows students to be familiar with the content then complete questions on each topic.

Science Unit of Work: Electricity

Science Unit of Work: Electricity

A 6 week Unit of Work for Electricity including planning, presentations and activities. Interactive, practical and engaging, focusing on developing Scientific Inquiry skills (such as identifying and classifying, fair testing) in addition to content. Children learn about complete circuits, how to make a circuit and a switch, conductors and insulators as well as how to conduct and investigation. Originally designed for Year 4 students but could easily be adapted for older or younger pupils. Designed for the new English National Curriculum although relevant to other curriculums too.

AQA GCSE Paper 1 Physics Revision Question and Swap cards

AQA GCSE Paper 1 Physics Revision Question and Swap cards

A set of Question and swap cards for Paper 1 physics, each topic has 36 cards with a question and the full answer to help students improve their recall of important facts for the Paper 1 Physics examination. Here are a couple of ways you can use these cards as revision activities. I would suggest printing and laminating the cards so they last. Topics covered: Atomic Structure cards Electricity Particle model of Matter Energy (to be added, if you purchase before I have added this please contact me and I will send it to you as soon as possible) Question and Swap - Collaborative Structure They can be used as class sets, give each student a card -all students stand up and raise their hand. Walk around the room until you find someone with their hand up - partner up and put your hand down. Ask your partner your question. Praise their answer and coach if necessary. Your partner will do the same with their question. Thank each other, swap cards and raise your hand and walk around the room to find another partner. Pick a Card - Play as a table of 4 students Person 1 asks person 2 to pick a card Person 2 picks a card and ask the question to person 3 Person 3 answers the question Person 4 praises person 3 for their answer, recap it and say if it is right or wrong, mentor person 3 if they are incorrect. Everyone praises person 3 and then they swap roles.
