A selection of home-made workbooklets that match the OCR Gateway specification and Collins texbooks. Also includes leveled learning objectives using the OCR specification for self-assessment, and a variery of activities. Not always suitable for the most able or the most weak students.
A variety of activities relating to reflection of light. These were written for lessons 3 and 4 of the QCA unit 8K.

Resources and worksheets relating to the old QCA unit 9K Gravity and Space. The worksheets act_massandweight.doc, act_tension_force.doc, gavitiy.doc, and hmwk_massandgrav.doc are numeracy activities.
Information about 28 elements, 4 per card (A6 size). Useful for information about the elements and looking for patterns/sorting into groups. Useful for using instead of a textbook or combined with a periodic table so they can work out where the metals and non metals are or what elements are gases. It is also possible to use them to look at the differences between metals and non-metals.
Sets of worksheets for students to use that closely match the Collins Scheme and Textbook for OCR Gateway Understanding Ourselves. These resources are for the 2006 scheme of work and as I am not teaching biology at the moment won't be updated in the foreseeable future.

These are exit tickets that students complete at the end of the lesson and allow students to write longer responses to the ideas covered in the lesson. This is the part that I will take the most time over marking. And has proven quite successful in helping students to think about their use of key words and being full in their answers.
A booklet to support students revising for gateway science, with objectives. You will probably want to supplement it with pages from other revision workbooks.
