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.

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!

Reflection and Refraction Ray Diagram Activity WorksheetsQuick View

Reflection and Refraction Ray Diagram Activity Worksheets

Large format A3 'placemat' style worksheets for reflection and refraction practical work. There is a lot of evidence to suggest that useful learning outcomes can be compromised by over-ambitious or lengthy practical work. I think this is certainly true of optics hence I have developed two short and sweet practical activities to show the basics of reflection and refraction. Each should only take about 10 minutes depending on your learners. The key learning objectives are as follows: Reflection - the angle of incidence and angle of reflection are always identical. Refraction - the light 'bends' towards the normal when entering a glass block. Each student or group of students will also need: a ray box, plane mirror, glass block, protractor and ruler.
DIRT self reflection lessonQuick View

DIRT self reflection lesson

Activity I used with my high ability year 10 class - trying to encourage them to think about skill development, rather than simple knowledge acquisition. Used an intro to highlight why metacognition and self-assessment are important parts of learning. Students then used a sheet to write down their learning high points and improvement points for these topics. Then looked back through the end of unit test and formative comments in their books - made improvements/corrections to their work and noted these down in steps taken. Sheet glued in for me then to respond to, giving them targets for the next topic, as well as effort and test grading.

Describing Reflections on a Graph AxisQuick View

Describing Reflections on a Graph Axis

This is a worksheet and accompanying PowerPoint Slides which include the questions and the answers. The task is for the pupil to identify the lines of reflection and name them using the appropriate name, e.g. reflection through the line x+-4. These are similar to the questions which might be asked on a G.C.S.E. paper. Also included is a PowerPoint with the same questions as on the worksheet. Two questions per page including the answers so students can self or peer assess. The images from the PowerPoint slides can be copied and pasted into most of the various interactive whiteboard files for use in a different presentation media.

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.
