Welcome to my shop!! I have taught in an inner London school for 6 years and been Head of Department for the last 3. I not only produce science specific resources but also cross-curricular projects and science literacy resources. I hope you find something useful and your students enjoy the activities!

Momentum (HT) Skeleton PP for AQA Combined Science (Physics topic 6.5.5
ScienceTeacherTESScienceTeacherTES

Momentum (HT) Skeleton PP for AQA Combined Science (Physics topic 6.5.5

(0)
A very simple PP covering the AQA specification for Physics module 6.5.5 of the new AQA combined science Trilogy specification. The resource is designed to help reduce your planning time by providing you with the main specification points for each topic so you can focus on making lessons creative and engaging. The resource is free as it is so small and basic. the PPs covering the rest of the course are more detailed and cover larger parts of the spec. Momentum is a Higher tier only topic so thought I would do it as a stand alone PP.
Self-assessment activity for OCR A level Chem Practice paper - Set 1, paper 2
ScienceTeacherTESScienceTeacherTES

Self-assessment activity for OCR A level Chem Practice paper - Set 1, paper 2

(0)
Designed to accompany OCR A level Chemistry practice paper - Set 1, paper 2 - H432/02 Synthesis and analytical techniques The self assessment sheet breaks down each question by topic so students can quickly see which topics they are confident in and which topics require further work. I use the self-assessments in a similar way to PLCs and ask the students to keep them in their notes to refer to as a starting point for revision
Literacy activity for the changing atom

Literacy activity for the changing atom

(0)
Information about the key scientists involved in the changing atom. it is downloaded from various sources on the internet and I ask students to read about a particular scientist and highlight the key points. As a class we then build the history of the atom using the information and any prior knowledge they may have.

Classroom expectations activity

(0)
To be used at the start of the year or whenever you feel your class need a reminder about how to behave in your classroom. The resource provides some ideas on classroom rules but essentially encourages the students to come up with their own rules with you in order to share the responsibility. I use it when I start working with a new class, at the start of each term and refer back to it at any point I feel the students need reminding. Keeping a uniform Power Point keeps consistency.
