2018-19 GCSE Physics AQA student progress trackers

Each topic has a content and a learning outcome content list. Each outcome is expressed in terms of I can and one of the Bloom's taxonomy verbs that show students progress in their knowledge and problem solving skills in Physics, from level 4 to 9

2017-19 AQA 4.8 GCSE Physics. Use these tables for students to keep a record of their progress in the Electricity units. The students can fill in the right-hand side column with a traffic light colour scheme to show their level of confidence in a sub-unit. For the teacher, this data can help formulate individual feedback or to plan revision interventions. Bloom's taxonomy is systematically used to help students develop the skills for answering exams style questions and competently communicate their subject knowledge.

Solar System Bundle

Solar System Bundle

The Solar System Bundle includes the following: 1. A PowerPoint presentation on the Solar System covering the following: 1. The planets 2. The Sun 3. The Moon 4. The Milky Way Galaxy Includes 16 slides covering facts and images on the above as well as the internal structure of the Earth and the Sun. Comes with a Solar System diagram to colour and label as well as two word searches on famous astronomers and planets of the Solar System. 2. A set of 24 task cards designed for students to independently, or in groups, review our solar system. Included in this kit: - 24 task cards focusing on different aspects of our solar system. - Student solution sheet on which to record answers. - Teacher answer key. There are 4 cards on each sheet [6 sheets in total]. They can be printed in greyscale or color [single or double sided]. Save paper and time by laminating the cards and keeping them as class sets. Provide each student with a blank solution grid for writing the answer to the problem stated on each card. Great as a group extension or consolidation activity or for early finishers. 3. Solar System card sort comprised of 3 cards for each planet or feature of the Solar System [an image, the name and fact]. Simply print and then cut out the set of cards [laminate if you wish to make class sets]. Students then shuffle the cards and sort them into their correct sets. Comes with a color and alternative black and white set as well as 6 blank cards to add your own information or get students to make them. Works great as a starter activity or plenary. Could also be used for concentration and snap. Terms included: 1. Mercury 2. Venus 3. Earth 4. Mars 5. Jupiter 6. Saturn 7. Uranus 8. Neptune 9. Pluto [Dwarf Planet] 10. Planet 9 11. Sun 12. Moon 13. Milky Way Galaxy 14. Asteroid Belt 15. Meteor Cards included: ➸ 45 color cards ➸ 45 black and white cards ➸ 6 blank cards 4. A Trumps style card game based on the Solar System. The set comes with 16 cards which can be printed in colour or black and white. A back for the cards can also be used and printed back to back with the cards to complete the set. Laminate and keep as class sets. How to Play Ideally 2-4 people can play. Shuffle the pack of trump cards and deal them face down to each player. Each player holds all of their cards so that they can only see the top one. The player to the dealer's left picks a category from the top card in their pile and reads out the score value. For example, “Moons - 4”. The other players then read out their value for the same category. The player with the highest value wins and takes all the losing cards and places them on the bottom of their pile. It is then their turn to pick a category from the next card. If 2 or more cards share the same value then all the cards are placed in the middle and the same player chooses again from the next card on their pile. The winner of that round takes all the losing cards plus the cards in the middle pile. The game carries on until one person has won all the cards. Cards in this series: Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune Pluto The Moon The Sun Ceres Haumea Makemake Eris Ganymede 5. An Internet research activity focusing on the Solar System. Questions cover topics on the planets, famous astronomers and other celestial facts and figures.

History of the atom, discovery of the nucleus, Thompson, Rutherford, Alpha particle scattering, Bohr

History of the atom, discovery of the nucleus, Thompson, Rutherford, Alpha particle scattering, Bohr

A complete and ready to deliver high quality KS4 / GCSE lesson from Barclayfox. This is a complete lesson from start to end. You do not need to spend a huge number of hours carefully planning it and writing differentiated resources, I have already spent those hours creating this great lesson. Furthermore it has been improved time and again after each use - it is tried and tested, you will not find better. There is nothing for you to do but give it a quick look through and familiarise yourself with it. Lesson objectives - I can: *Describe the structure of the atom (Protons, neutrons, electrons: charges, masses and locations) * Explain the history of our model of the atom (billiard ball model, plum pudding model, nuclear model, planetary model, quantum mechanical model). * Describe Rutherford’s experiment which led to the discovery of the nucleus. This carefully crafted lesson is over 40 slides long, has differentiated activity sheets, and is full of learning activities as below: * Simple starter - self assess vs objectives * Matching task - answers are provided. * Differentiated activity sheets - support, medium ability, high ability. * Activity sheet - answers. * Sequencing activity. * Gap fill activity - all answers are provided. * Quiz with answers. * Questions – all answers are provided. * Theory slides (carefully sculpted, interspaced with learning activities, not ‘death by powerpoint’). * Video clip links (carefully selected – this alone can save you 20+ minutes of searching). * Paired work activities – answers are provided. * Homework worksheet * Scientific literacy activities. * Plenary formative / summative assessment quiz / activity. * Student self-assessment versus objectives activity – learners judge for themselves how much they have learnt. 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. Please note: when searching for resources please type barclayfox into the search box/engine and it will show you all our resources. Please purchase this lesson, and leave a positive review. This lesson is part of a series, whilst they all work very well as standalone individual lessons you may wish to buy others from the series: 0. Bundle – contains all lessons (if available not all my series are bundled) 1. Atoms, history of the atom and discovery of the nucleus. THIS LESSON. 2. Isotopes and Mass number and Atomic number. 3. Alpha, Beta and Gamma – ionising radiation. 4. Changes in the nucleus – decay equations 5 to 14 Please read the list in the powerpoint. Thank you, and happy teaching ! Yours, Barclayfox.

Planetary investigation - data analysis

Planetary investigation - data analysis

Includes data/information (e.g. oxygen levels, temperature, amount of vegetation/water, predators, gravity) on 6 imaginary planets - and Earth. Info on Earth is roughly accurate. This info is presented in the form of a table and as a range of graphs (e.g. pie/bar charts). Aim of lesson is to first work out which graphs represent which planet. Children can then decided whether a planet is inhabitable (by comparing it to Earth's data). (Includes brief lesson plan).
