Get started on next year’s planning with this collection of biology, chemistry and physics resources

With many classes now preparing for exams, take advantage of the extra time to get ahead with your planning for next year. But don’t worry, you are not alone! We’ve hand-picked some of the very best schemes of work, unit plans and comprehensive lesson ideas to help you out.

Biology resources

AQA Biology Required Practical Booklet

Booklet containing all the AQA required practicals, with space for pupils to write a risk assessment, expected results and explanations, as well as how to improve the practicals.

This is not a lab-book where they can record results in a table, this is intended to link as revision after practicals have been completed, linking to the exam questions where pupils are required to discuss methods with scientific explanations and improvements.

Of course this can be edited for your own use!

AQA A2 Respiration scheme of work: Assessments, powerpoints and worksheets

This package is a scheme of work designed to take students step by step through respiration. This is designed to be used with AQA, but i have also used this with OCR as well. There are individual assessments to go with each PowerPoint to help monitor progress. Areas covered: Links, Krebs, electron transport chain, glycolysis and aerobic respiration.

AQA GCSE C7 Energy Changes Sequence of Lessons and Scheme of Work for Trilogy Specification

This is a sequence of lessons that I use for teaching the topic C7 Energy Changes for the new AGA GCSE. This can be used to teach students following the Trilogy Specification. These lessons cover 5.5 Energy Changes and Required Practical 10 from the Chemistry Specification.

The lessons in the sequence of lessons are:
L1 Exothermic Reactions
L2 Endothermic Reactions
L3 Investigating Temperature Change - Required Practical
L4 Reaction Profiles
L5 Bond Calculations

Also included in the accompanying scheme of work. These lessons can also be downloaded separately from my store.

2 and 3 year GCSE plan for new (2016) AQA combined and separate science (Physics)

I have taken the spec, write learning objectives and sorted them in to lesson blocks. and then worked out the number of hours I think it would take to teach.

The ideal situation has worked out as a year 3 plan, taking out all the practicals and setting a lot of homework has worked out as a 2 year ("Oh ****, why didn't they tell us earlier") plan.

I'm using this as the basis for the SOWs I'm writing
