The lesson contains: * Need list – telling you what to photocopy or what kit to order etc * Notes to help the teacher * Title & lesson objectives (as above). * Starter task where students self-assess themselves against each objective * Scientific literacy activity * Homework (you choose whether your learners need to do it) * Questions – all answers are provided. * Paired work activities with answers. * Theory slides (minimal – interspaced with thinking activities - not ‘death by powerpoint’) * Practicals in groups – with scaffolding text * Equipment list - to give to your technicians (excel file). * Numeracy activity * Gap fill activity – answers are provided * Plenary formative/summative assessment activity / quiz * Student self-assessment versus objectives activity – so learners can judge for themselves how much they have learned As teachers we all work ridiculously long hours each week. Give yourself a break, spend some life with your wife / husband / children / friends / family by purchasing more lessons created by ‘Barclayfox’ once they appear on TES.

Seasons, why they happen, northern hemisphere, sun’s height in the sky, day and night etc. Complete lesson. Seasons is number 3 in a series of 6 high quality lessons that fully and expertly delivers all the points within BOTH the NEW KS3 Department for Education ‘Space Physics’ National Curriculum and the AQA KS3 specification / syllabus sections ‘3.7.2 Universe’ and ‘3.1.2 Gravity’. NO PREPARATION REUIRED ! Simply submit the equipment list to your technicians and then the PPT will lead you step by step through the entire lesson. Recall why we have day and night. * Explain the seasons and the importance of the sun’s angle. * Explain why if it is summer in the UK, it is winter in Australia. * Compare the shadows and the suns positions in winter and summer. * Use new literacy words such as sphere, hemisphere, equator etc * Successfully complete a simple practical to explain summer and winter. STARTER Pupils will start the lessons by thinking and working in pairs in a race to solve a picture puzzle and work out what today’s lesson is about. After discussion that leads to revealing the title and lesson outcomes, students then self assess against their current understanding of this lesson. MAIN and MAIN and MAIN… This lesson is chunked into discrete sections to support learning and engender positive behaviour by keeping students interested and focused. All points of the specification are addressed. There are various student activities such as: demo, practical, gap fills, matching, paired work, literacy activities, focused questions with answers and differentiation, picture puzzle, mini test, homework, carefully selected video, self-assessment opportunities, peer assessment opportunities etc. This good variety of activities keeps pupils focused and happily learning. PLENARY: In the plenary activity pupils complete a matching activity and then peer assess it to uncover how much they have learnt during the lesson. They then self-assess themselves against the lesson outcomes. Students who need further support set themselves additional homework to enhance learning of today’s lesson. EXTENSION ACTIVITIES: These are provided just in case any group requires them. All resources are included in this excellent lesson, there is nothing for you to do but deliver it. Thank you for looking, your positive feedback would be very much appreciated :) This lesson is one of a series of 6: 1. Solar system, stars and galaxies and the universe. 2. Geocentric and heliocentric solar system models 3. Seasons. 4. Gravity, weight and mass. 5. Exploring and observing the universe. 6. The moon’s phases.

Dangers of radiation. A complete and ready to deliver high quality GCSE lesson from Barclayfox. There is nothing to do ! Even if you do not have time to look at it in advance it is not a problem as the PPT will lead you smoothly through the lesson. Lesson objectives: Understand the dangers of “ionising” radiation and the damage they can cause (ManKinD). Know how to safely handle radioactive sources and protect yourself (TarDiS) Understand contamination and irradiation. Explain how ideas about the world can change. Please note: This lesson does not cover “uses” as they are covered in the Barclayfox lesson 8 of this topic. This lesson is called “Nuclear radiation uses in medicine”. My lessons cover the whole of this “atomic structure” topic but do not blindly follow the textbook order instead they use a structure that has proved highly successful over many years. Uses in medicine lesson is here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/nuclear-radiation-uses-in-medicine-sterilisation-diagnosis-treatment-tracers-radiotherapy-etc-11703961 This carefully crafted lesson is over 30 slides long, and is full of learning activities some are noted below: * ALL answers are provided throughout! * Starter - recaps previous lessons (with answers). * Paired work activities. * Scientific literacy activity. * Homeworks - 2 - you choose. * Questions. * Theory slides (carefully sculpted, interspaced with learning activities, not ‘death by powerpoint’). * Video clip link (carefully selected – this alone can save you a lot of searching). * Gap fill activity. * Unscramble the words race. * Plenary quiz. * Student self-assessment versus objectives activity. As teachers we all work ridiculously long hours each week. Give yourself a break, spend some life with your loved ones, press buy now! If you like this lesson please leave a review.

Hints and tips on how to fall asleep and get good quality sleep. This is not a lesson as such. However students who are short of sleep find it very very difficult to learn, so hopefully this will help them. I wrote this as one of my colleagues (yes he is a teacher!) is having a problem sleeping, and several of my students complain about not being able to sleep / lack of sleep. So I hope this will help them. It’s aimed as my adult colleague but these word docs can be very easily modified and given to students…

FREE help sheet for teachers or students on energy stores, transfers, carriers, pathways and energy diagrams. This is specifically for the new GCSE 9-1 specification (which can be confusing). ENERGY - THE LANGUAGE HAS CHANGED: On tes there are many many energy lessons and resources teaching to the old spec. which are no longer applicable if taught today – which is a polite way of saying they are wrong. There are even some resources I’ve looked at that claim to be new spec. 9-1 – but they are wrong too, even BBC Bitesize is getting some aspects a bit confused. Please don’t risk teaching your classes incorrectly ! This resource is a FREE help sheet for science teachers which explains it all. This help sheet is clear and simple and free !
