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.

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.

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.

KS2: Coordinates, Translations and Reflections Resource Pack

This is a complete resource pack for teaching coordinate and transformation objectives in KS2. Included is an 81 page flip-chart (I have uploaded in ActivInspire, PowerPoint and PDF format) to help deliver the lessons, a 49 page booklet of differentiated activities including games, worksheets and assessments.

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.

Reflections and MirrorsQuick View

Reflections and Mirrors

This is a powerpoint I used as part of my unit on Light for a mixed Y3-4-5 class. It followed the first lesson on understanding the difference between light sources and reflectors, and that light travels in straight lines. We did 4 investigations as explained on the ppt but I haven't been able to include the worksheets as some were cobbled together from other sheets and some investigations were recorded straight into their books. Hope its useful!

Reflection of lightQuick View

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.
