An easy way of facilitating choice, challenge, collaboration and creativity for your pupils within their home learning. Based on the topics we teach our year 7s these charts can easily be adapted for your own school's topics.<br /> I would ask a typical learner to complete 2 points per week for the duration for the topic. Therefore if they choose 1 point tasks they must complete 2 of them or it they choose a 4 point task they can take 2 weeks to complete it. I would love to hear any constructive feedback you have or even better how it went with your pupils. <br />PS this was created a while ago with resources I no longer know the origin of and I therefore apologise if credit should have been given.
Lovely introduction activity for Y1 electricty. Blow up to a A3 sheet. Get lots of magazines and brochures and get the children to cut out and stick electrical and non electrical objects. Get them to draw things in their own home also, or their favourite toy and sort it. Extension activity or next activity: look at your electrical objects can you now sort them in to 'uses batteries' and 'uses main electrcity'. Children really enjoyed it.
I put this together for the Higher Biology course in Scotland but it will be appropriate for A/S. Some good animations of replication, transcription and translation that you can click through to help explain the process to students. Hope you find it useful.
A set of flashcards for a starter activity. Pupils have one card of the four each. When asked a variety of questions they have to hold up the appropriate card. Good for assessing whole class knowledge of different keywords for inheritance and genetic topics.
Photocopying on different coloured card helps.

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
