A scheme of work to introduce science to year 7. I have created a booklet that goes with this which is mainly taken from exploring science which has not been included. The 11 powerpoints with these have also been added
8 lessons worth of practical skills as an introduction in science. Includes full student booklet and powerpoint with brief lesson plans to accompany student booklet. Also included is equipment that will be needed for practicals. All lessons are Harry Potter themed and are used to introduce basic skills in science, being safe in the lab, lighting a bunsen burner, learning to use a thermometer and a measuring cylinder, making crystals, flame tests. Investigation skills also introduced, such as identifying variables, drawing results tables and graphs and analysing data with evaluation.
This will really excite new year 7s and enthuse them with science.
Complete revision resources for AQA Science Units 1, 2 and 3 for Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Also some planning for 6 mark questions is included.

**UPDATED June 2016** Thank you for all the positive comments and ratings.
This resource pack includes a highly visual and engaging 33-slide PowerPoint presentation that teaches magnetism to year 7 or year 8 pupils. Scaffolded note-taking worksheets for learners have been customized to go along with these PowerPoint presentations. Two additional worksheets and a quiz are also included. The learning objectives are listed below.
By the end of this series of lessons, pupils will:
1) be introduced to the discovery and history of magnets
2) know the elements that have magnetic properties
3) observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others
4) compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet, and identify some magnetic materials
5) describe magnets as having 2 poles
6) predict whether 2 magnets will attract or repel each other, depending on which poles are facing
7) know that materials contain groups of spinning electrons called domains
8) know that the domains are aligned in magnetic materials
9) know that the domains of a non-magnetic material are not aligned
10) learn about magnetic fields by plotting with compass, representation by field lines
11) learn about Earth’s magnetism, compass and navigation
12) explore the magnetic fields of permanent and induced magnets, and the Earth’s magnetic field

18 science glossaries for different parts of the curriculum. They were originally designed for KS3 but can be used earlier or later depending on ability.
These can be used for reference or spelling homework or starts to topics.
Chemistry - Acids & Alkalis, Atoms & Elements, Compounds & Mixtures, Reactions of Metals and Simple Chemical Reactions.
Biology - Cells, Environment & Feeding Relationships, Food & Digestion, Plants & Photosynthesis, Reproduction, Sound and Hearing & Variation
Physics - Electric Circuits, Energy Resources, Gravity & Space, Space & Beyond, Particle Theory and Speeding Up
