Low Workload High Impact KS4 Physics Marked Work Package

Take hours off your weekly workload! Mark a full set in 30 minutes

Given the new ofsted focus on managing teacher workload, there is a shift towards effective marking being done efficiently. The emphasis here is on the students doing the work, and the students making guided progress.

This resource covers all of KS4 Physics with structured open tasks and target-based marking.

  • The students complete the work and hand it in.

  • Mark the pile of worksheets by highlighting or drawing a ring around the target you wish the student to do as their response. (You can also do this for any parts of the task the student has not completed, since the task is on the sheet).

  • Return the tasks to the students and project the targets onto the whiteboard for students to do their marking response.

I have made the ‘Conservation of Energy’ task available for free so you can try before you buy, and check that your school are happy that this fits in with their marking policy.
