I am a secondary school & A-level Science teacher, specialising in Biology. I am also an experienced AQA GCSE Biology Examiner. My resources contain a mix of Biology, Chemistry and Physics lessons aimed at meeting specification points for the new AQA Trilogy GCSE course and KS3 Activate course. All of my lessons include at least one opportunity for self-assessment, a range of activities to suit students of all abilities, a set of differentiated starter questions and a plenary.

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Bioenergetics' SoW.

For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience

This lesson starts with a think > pair > share task for pupils to discuss some questions about muscle, after a short class discussion you can the answers to these questions and talk them through with the students (all on the PowerPoint).

Next pupils can sum up what they have learnt so far by completing a fill in the blank task, which then can be self-assessed.

Now pupils will be given cards of information about how heart rate, breathing rate and concentrations of glycogen change during exercise and most importantly, why these response occur. Pupils can read their information card in pairs and using this they can fill in the table in their books. This activity is likely to take 15-20 minutes, once finished they can self-assess their work using the answers provided.

A mid-plenary task will quickly assess students knowledge of what they have learnt so far, then the final activity is a 10 mark exam-style question. You could allow pupils more time to answer these questions or for higher ability set a 10 minute timer and request that they complete in silent, exam conditions. The mark scheme is provided for pupils to mark their own work.

The plenary task is a 4-mark exam question with mark scheme provided.

All resources are included at the end of the presentation.
