Wrote this as part of a differentiated SoW that allows staff to remove elements depending on ability of the group or inidividual. On request I have IWB materials that support this writing frame - types of graph, how to analyse etc. These additional IWB materials can be used from Yr1 through to Yr9 and possibly beyond.
Writing frame to help pupils in KS3 or bottom set GCSE groups get to grips with how to write parts of an investigation. <br />
Pink sections are the higher tier sections. Pupils can work up to these.
An outstanding bridging unit for Year 9 pupils based on the material released from AQA on 'Biomimicry'. The unit has been used for a six week half term for Year 9 pupils to introduce them to concepts and skills that appear at GCSE and to bridge the gap. The unit includes an overview, lesson plans and PowerPoints for 24 lessons. The worksheets and homeworks can be obtained from the AQA website.
I have taken the common 6 mark questions seen in the GCSE Core examinations and adapted them into a 6 mark AFL style question - this can be done as a starter/plenary in lessons to ensure pupils look at question command words, key words and exam technique. You can add or remove the key words depending on the group and use the answers for self and peer assessment.<br />
These have proved invaluable for the current exams and have had positive feedback from pupils<br />
These can be adapted to fit with any syllabus and the new GCSE specifications

This resources includes 6 presentations containing images to work from on the board that cover all content for all six units. <br />
I use these before all exams to give students a quick overview of all content, they make revision notes from the board and seem to get a lot from this lesson style.
