Summary worksheets on the keywords describing change of state and the properties of and particle descriptions of solids, liquids and gases. The States of Matter worksheets are for different abilities and the keyword fill may be used as a preparatory sheet for students to find the keywords, or simply as an annotation sheet used in conjunction with the presentation. The wordbank cards have the meanings as well as the words and these or the flashcards may be used in conjunction with the keyword fill sheet for students to place the words before writing them down. The flashcards can be used in class for peer learning and checked with a quick quiz. Although intended for lower ability students, the longer "States of Matter cut and stick" worksheet can be useful in general on a Friday afternoon. "States of Matter - match" is intended for middle ability students and "States of matter" for higher ability.

1. A development plan for KS3 Curriculum, Literacy and Pupil Premium
2. An initial presentation made to teachers regarding the changes to the GCSE curriculum. supporting resources for this include:
- A timeline for Curriculum development
- Example of an agreed SoW format and lesson plan format to be used
- An example of grading criteria to be used in science each department devised their own grading criteria based on the Draft specifications at GCSE and their current knowledge. These grading criteria have been used to plan the assessments throughout KS3.
3. A KS3 development timeline
4. Presentation to parents explaining the new KS3 curriculum (this was extremely well received by parents)
5. A parental questionnaire that was used on the KS3 New curriculum information evening
6 A booklet to be shared with parents after launch, detailing the KS3 curriculum model (This is a good place to start reading on this strategy)
7 1-9 grade forecasts for all subjects. This has been used to set target grades for our pupils. We have used transition matrices to complete the flight paths to 9-1. Once the targets are in place you can enter the KS2 data into the spreadsheet to see how those forecasts will look in terms of a performance profile of each year group.

A lesson looking at Women in Science and the contributions they have made, hopefully inspiring young girls in Schools to consider a career in STEM fields.
Starter: Work out what all the pictures have in common (all discoveries made by women), match up the questions to the percentage answers.
Main:Task 1- complete the 'Women In Science Factfind' worksheet using the computers.
Task 2- Create a factfile about a particular woman in Science. 5 factfiles to go through as a class to give them an idea of what to include.
Plenary: Sharing in pairs information about their woman in Science, then presenting to the group interesting facts about their woman in Science.
Homework: Produce a poster or leaflet to persuade more women / girls to get into scientific fields of work.
The last slide has links to different organisation that work to get more women into scientific fields of work.
