Three multiple choice revision quizzes, each containing 50 questions, for GCSE (Physics, Chemistry and Biology). Ideal class activity testing knowledge and understanding of content from across the specification. Suitable for students who have completed or nearly completed the courses as part of a revision lesson and helps with developing memory recall skills. Contains some higher tier questions which can be edited for lower ability groups. Fully editable with ‘Ask me’ to give all students opportunities to answer.
The quizzes makes use of a 15 second timer to encourage quick thinking and improve speed of knowledge recall, after which the question is covered, only leaving the possible answers. Incorrect answers chosen are highlighted red to provide instant feedback to the students during the quizzes and allowing for opportunities to discuss the correct answer.
When playing the presentation, each quiz is navigated by on-screen buttons to encourage students to answer all questions rather than skipping through to ensure that they are familiar with these topics and consolidate their learning across the courses. This also provides opportunities for students to identify areas of weakness where they need to focus their revision.
With the New Curriculum in force and Levels gone I have taken it upon myself to create a new assessment grid for Science. It works the same way as an APP grid. It also includes the Working Scientifically criteria. Like the New Curriculum, each assessment grid has been grouped into age ranges, KS1, Lower KS2 and Upper KS2. Rather than Levels, which I know OFSTED are dead against, I have gone with 'Stages' which admittedly is essentially the same thing as Levels, but by a different name, Having tested these myself I know that these grids are handy assessment tools, with simple highlighting needed, with dates, to show how well each child has done.
New of Term Science Quiz to use with all secondary year groups and classes.

Lesson 1: A presentation that takes pupils through the 10 rules for the Science lab. A great back to school refresher.
Lesson 2: Hazard Symbols- This lesson introduces pupils to signs and symbols, why we have them in Science and specifically symbols that are found in the laboratory. Pupils are asked to look at every day symbols and their meanings and to discuss why we have symbols. They are then introduced to 9 hazard symbols and their meanings. This lesson comes with a blank hazard symbols mind map to complete during the lesson. They must then carryout research for homework and record it on this mind map (we print it onto A3 paper). In addition, there is a set of hazard flash cards for a recall and a doodle task. test can be printed and laminated for reuse. They are great for revision also!
Lesson 3: Science Apparatus- This is an introduction lesson to demonstrate how pupils draw scientific apparatus in diagram form and the uses of these within the laboratory.

NEW ROUNDS ADDED FOR 2018 AND MORE TO BE ADDED SOON
End of Year quiz for use within Science lessons towards the end of term. There are 17 Quiz rounds to choose from (I usually have the folder open on the board and let one team at a time choose which round we do).
There are several science based rounds (including CB1-6 specific questions from the Edexcel combined science GCSE that I’m sure fits with other schemes), as well as some generic rounds.
As a Primary Science Coordinator/ Leader, I made 3 questionnaires to complete as part of my monitoring of science across the school. A questionnaire for pupils, and choice of 2 for staff (one focused more on CPD)
This resource is a set of over 300 AQA GCSE Science revision tasks covering the content in the 2015 AQA Science specification. Most of the tasks are in a zip file, however, I've included a few so they will appear in the previews. Each task has instructions for what the task is and a bit of key information students will need. Each task is designed to take around 10 mins and over the last few years have really helped students structure their own revision.
Good luck in the summer exams and thanks for looking
