Great website to randomly generate names and then you can ask a question/calculation. Useful for starters and plenaries and keeps all children on their toes as their name might be next.
Two options available, the fruit machine - which allows you to remove names once the child has answered a question or the type writer - complete spontaneity.
<p>Which is the independent variable and which the dependent? And what are control variables? Let this song do the teaching, to the tune of ‘If you’re happy and you know it!’ Initially written with my Year 11s in mind to help them prepare for their Physics practical and associated exam, this song is now used across science and from Year 7! Attached are the video I made (also youtube link), my original powerpoint, the words which can be stuck in a student’s book or used as a poster in the lab. Enjoy</p>

What can it do for you? If you are not destined for a career in science, how is it relevant?<br /><br />This video has the answers - Listen to students explaining why triple science is an ‘‘open door qualification”.<br /><br />This video has been put together by staff and students from schools across Bradford, Calderdale and North Yorkshire, as part of the Triple Science Support Programme . <br /><br />For more information or the resources available please visit: www.nationalstemcentre.org.uk/triplescience

For use alongside data captures and discussions about pupil progress, this succinct performance grid enables observers to gauge and categorise department and individual teacher approaches to pupil progress data, using OFSTED guidance. The first page of the document provides descriptors of 'outstanding', 'good', 'requires improvement' and 'inadequate' feedback within appropriately considered focus areas, for example: Rate of Progress, Accuracy, Noticing Trends and Plotting Interventions, etc. Schools that already employ this tool often opt to highlight the descriptors on this page as they complete the scrutiny, thus creating a bigger picture of the strengths and areas for improvement observed. This can also be a helpful aid in arriving at an overall judgement, should your school opt to arrive at one. The second page allows observers to further pinpoint and describe the 'www' (what went well) and 'ebi' (even better if) aspects of the feedback, to aid teacher/department in improving their practice.
This resource pack is comprised of:<br />
1.) Observation & Learning Walk Performance Grid<br />
2.) Marking and Feedback Performance Grid<br />
3.) Pupil Progress Performance Grid<br />
For use alongside lesson observations, learning walks, book monitoring, and discussions about pupil progress, these succinct performance grids enable observers to gauge, categorise, and feedback on teaching and learning using OFSTED guidance for effective teaching. The documents provide descriptors of 'outstanding', 'good', 'requires improvement' and 'inadequate' practice within appropriately considered teaching and learning focus areas, for example: Questioning, Positive Feedback, Use of Additional Adults, Noticing Data Trends and Plotting Interventions etc. Schools who opt to grade individual teachers on their performance have noted that these are helpful aids in arriving at an overall judgement.
