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!

Newton's Laws of motion Skeleton PP for AQA Combined Science (Physics topic 6.5.4.2)
ScienceTeacherTESScienceTeacherTES

Newton's Laws of motion Skeleton PP for AQA Combined Science (Physics topic 6.5.4.2)

(1)
A PP covering the AQA specification for Physics module 6.5.4.2 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. Topics covered: Newton's First Law Newton's Second Law Newton's Third Law I hope to have covered the entire year 11 course for the new specification (biology, Chemistry and Physics) by summer 2017 so please keep checking for more resources. I will also be making assessments to go alongside the resources ready for September
Self-assessment activity for OCR A level Chem Practice paper - Set 1, paper 1

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

(0)
Designed to accompany OCR Chemistry Practice paper - Set 1 H432/01 Periodic table, elements and physical chemistry 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

Magazine article on contraceptives (Activity 4.5.3.4)

(1)
A stand alone literacy activity to help students evaluate the use of contraceptives. It is a template for their article but they must use their knowledge and other sources of information to research the content LO: (WS1.4) - Explain everyday and technological applications of science; evaluate associated personal, social, economic and environmental implications; and make decisions based on the evaluation of evidence and arguments. Activity 4.5.3.4 accompanies the skeleton PP, Homeostasis and Response Skeleton PP for AQA Combined Science (Biology topic 5) - also available from TES
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.
Momentum (HT) Skeleton PP for AQA Combined Science (Physics topic 6.5.5

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.
Factors that affect the rate of reaction - Outdoor/active learning

Factors that affect the rate of reaction - Outdoor/active learning

(0)
Once you have taught the factors that affect the rate of reaction this is a fun way to embed the knowledge whilst also having a bit of fun. You could also teach it as an introduction to the topic, allowing students to learn from the demonstration as opposed to applying existing knowledge to the demo. Contains plans for both student led and teacher led as well as differentiation ideas Great opportunity to get students out of the classroom and active Equipment required Some outdoor space/ ask to borrow the school gym At least 15 balls (ideally basket balls, footballs or volleyballs) Your students Content covered • How temperature affects the rate of reaction • How pressure affects the rate of reaction • How concentration affects the rate of reaction • How a catalyst affects the rate of reaction Also allows students to visualise particles and gain a greater understanding of what happens when these factors change in terms of reaction particles Suitable for KS3, KS4 and KS5 as they all cover rates of reaction Activity can take 30 minutes to an hour depending on how you run it and whether you discuss the extensions
Adapt and survive treasure hunt starter

Adapt and survive treasure hunt starter

(0)
Suitable for KS2/KS3 and KS4 Biology/Science Activity; -Print out the words and cut them out separately. -Hide them around the classroom/outside space -Students have to come in and try and find one of each word (4 in total) - they must leave any duplicates where they are for other students to find There are not enough of each word for every student so only some students will ‘survive’ Depending on how the students find the words you could discuss competition/survival of the fittest/Adaptation/could they survive with the resources they have? It is great fun and really gets the energy up for the start of the lesson plus the students will learn about 4 things living organisms require to survive

Literacy in science - including outdoor education opportunities

(0)
A selection of activities using word banks to increase students vocabulary and confidence in using scientific terms. The word banks are great for creative writing and sentence structure. They can also be used as part of a forest school activity in an outdoor classroom or as a homework to encourage students to go outside and discover nature and science around them. The terms range in difficulty to allow the resource to be used for all ages and abilities The resource can be used in class or at home and can be used for short snappy activities e.g. spelling tests or for more extensive projects

Location of human glands (Activity 4.5.3.1)

(0)
A stand alone activity to help students identify the position of each major gland in the human body (required as part of the AQA specification) LO: To identify the position of each major gland in the human body Activity 4.5.3.1 accompanies the skeleton PP, Homeostasis and Response Skeleton PP for AQA Combined Science (Biology topic 5) - also available from TES The activity is differentiated with 3 levels of difficulty and a solution is also provided for your reference
Classroom expectations activity

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.

Revision checklist for OCR A level chemistry

(0)
A quick activity that could start revision or be used from the start of the year to allow students to quickly monitor their progress. I set students different topics as part of their independent work and have reference copies of the mark schemes in my lab for them to use once they have completed the questions It is a good way to monitor and motivate independent work as well as remind students of the volume of content they need to know for their final exams.
