ReflectionQuick View


This resource is a fully differentiated lesson aimed at teaching the new AQA GCSE Physics and Trilogy Physics specification, and links to Waves (4.6) This lesson has 5 learning objectives that are structured in the IDEAL format: *Identify images that have been reflected. *Describe the properties of an image in a mirror in simple terms and investigate the laws of reflection. *Explain how to construct an accurate ray diagram. *Apply your understanding of ray diagrams to show how virtual images are formed. *Link your understanding of diffuse scattering and specular reflection to explain why some surfaces form images by reflection, and others do not. This lesson is designed with a challenge objective and challenge questions throughout to stretch your most able students, whilst supporting your LA students. Review the lesson before teaching to see how the animations and objectives will work in your lesson. Enjoy!
Personal Reflective WritingQuick View

Personal Reflective Writing

In the Scottish curriculum students will do a personal/reflective piece of writing. This scheme has been created for this unit. But can be adapted between year groups (S2-S4/Year 9-11). Resources are attached. It focuses on creative writing, narrative hooks, using sensory language, reflecting on past events. Can be followed up with desert island discs (search for on TES) or a speaking and listening task such as This is Your Life. Can also adapt and use for non fiction writing with a focus on biographies and autobiographies.

KS3 (light unit) - ReflectionQuick View

KS3 (light unit) - Reflection

This is a single lesson on the reflection of light from a plane mirror. The lesson is contextual and based on a driver involved in a car collision who may/may not have looked in their wing mirror. (The idea is they have to determine if the driver could see the lights of the car he overtook) The lesson is fully differentiated into Low, Mid, High and GCSE tasks and can be fully adaptable to any scale of learning (e.g. AWOL, 9-1). Pupils will: 1. Become forensic scientists to determine the law of reflection (requires ray boxes, mirrors and protractors. There are paper protractors available on the .ppt) 2. Draw/complete ray diagrams using the law of reflection for different scenarios (MID/HIGH worksheets are on the .ppt) 3. Determine the % chance that the driver was reckless or telling the truth 4. Write a conclusion based on their findings Worksheets and materials available on the .ppt.
Law of ReflectionQuick View

Law of Reflection

A lesson for IGCSE (14-6 year old) Coordinated Science although this will also work at KS3 (11-14 year olds). The slide that says 'Follow Mr Porter' I normally take them outside and show them how to play 'Wall Ball' and hence demonstrate the law of reflection. Please message me if you don't know 'wall ball'. The sheets are exercises in using the law, either drawing rays of light to show light being bounced off mirrors to find treasure on a treasure map or trying to 'zap' a dog (I have a running joke about my hate of dogs in my lessons). Please feel free to substitute something other than a dog!

Reflection of light

The document contains 4 worksheets that guides students through the AQA P1b topic of the reflection of light and how to produce ray diagrams. The worksheets have learning objectives, student-led activities, mini-plenaries and an AQA exam-question final plenary. When teaching this I photocopied the worksheets into an A5 booklet (one double-sided sheet of A4 folded in half) and the students worked through this during the lesson.
ReflectionQuick View


Designed for the new AQA GCSE 9-1 specification. This lesson builds upon properties of waves and looks at reflection. Students will be taught how to draw ray diagrams and show the reflection of light against a mirror, stating the relationship between the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection. Students will then apply this knowledge by looking at periscopes and drawing the path light rays take. Support sheets are provided to help with drawing ray diagrams through a periscope.

Middle Leaders Professional Standards Reflection Tool by @TeacherToolkit

These standards are intended as guidance to underpin best practice, whatever the particular job description of the middle leader or a senior leader. They are to be interpreted in the context of each individual and designed to be relevant to all, irrespective of length of service in post. This exercise should form part of a teacher’s personal self-review and professional development and should work alongside appraisal during stage 1 and stage 2 of the academic year.

Reflective symmetryQuick View

Reflective symmetry

This is two page worksheet which looks at reflective symmetry. The first sections asks children to reflect 2D shapes in the "x" axis and also the "y" axis. They then have to draw their own shape before carrying out a reflection. The reflections are performed on a coordinate grid in four quadrants. On the second page, children are given a variety of 2D shapes. and asked to use a mirror to identify and draw lines of symmetry. This would be useful as part of preparation for SATs or more generally for upper KS2 work on translations.
