OCR Gateway A GCSE Combined Science Unit C6.1 (Improving processes and products) REVISION

OCR Gateway A GCSE Combined Science Unit C6.1 (Improving processes and products) REVISION

A fun and engaging lesson presentation (67 slides) that uses a combination of exam questions (with mark schemes), quick tasks and competitions to enable the students to assess their understanding of the topic. Students will have fun whilst evaluating their knowledge of the knowledge of extracting metals so that they can recognise the areas that need further attention. Differentiated worksheets are included with the resource

Metal properties and industrial use

Metal properties and industrial use

Delivered to my year 11's. Can be altered to suit high or low ability. This lesson clearly outlines the structure of metallic bonding and allows the students to explore the link between electrons, bonding and properties (melting point, ductile etc). Resources included allow the students to justify the use of certain metals for different uses in day to day life as well as in industry. Exam style practice question for plenary.

Edexcel GCSE 9-1 Combined Science Chemistry Progress Sheets

Edexcel GCSE 9-1 Combined Science Chemistry Progress Sheets

Progress, RAG style, learning outcomes sheets for use with all the Edexcel Combined Science Chemistry topics. I created these over the summer break of 2017, along with other additional resources to support my students that are now in year 11 who have had to go from starting the old GCSE to the new style GCSE. Although, I have already used these along with the others of biology, physics, separate chemistry and my KS3 sheets that I created at the same time, with all 10 of my classes this academic year and I have received such positive feedback from all my students and other staff who have also now began to use them and seen such a positive result. I give the relevant sheet to the students at the start of a topic and then at the start of each lesson, after the starter/walk in task, I have the relevant outcomes for that lesson from the list on a ppt slide for them to identify on their sheet whilst I'm taking the register, to read through and ask themselves how much do they know of it already and then to ask themselves again at the end of the lesson. So the students feel its beneficial to have the outcomes in writing and for them to have to really think about them at the start rather than just listen to me reading and pointing them out. To then visually see for themselves if they feel that they have taken something from the lesson and achieved the goals. Also they are finding them such a help when it comes to revision. Additional benefits include helping them track what they have missed if they are absent, so clearly know what they need to catch up on and to be able to open their books as a teacher and quickly identify from the colours where individuals are struggling or finding aspects easy, and during one to one chats being able to use it to talk through what they feel that they need a little more help on.
