Edexcel GCSE 9-1 Combined Science Biology Progress Sheets

Edexcel GCSE 9-1 Combined Science Biology Progress Sheets

Progress, RAG style, learning outcomes sheets for use with all the Edexcel Combined Science Biology topics. I created these over the summer break of 2017, along with other additional resources to support my students that are now in year 11 who have had to go from starting the old GCSE to the new style GCSE. Although, I have already used these along with the others of chemistry, physics, separate chemistry and my KS3 sheets that I created at the same time, with all 10 of my classes this academic year and I have received such positive feedback from all my students and other staff who have also now began to use them and seen such a positive result. I give the relevant sheet to the students at the start of a topic and then at the start of each lesson, after the starter/walk in task, I have the relevant outcomes for that lesson from the list on a ppt slide for them to identify on their sheet whilst I'm taking the register, to read through and ask themselves how much do they know of it already and then to ask themselves again at the end of the lesson. So the students feel its beneficial to have the outcomes in writing and for them to have to really think about them at the start rather than just listen to me reading and pointing them out. To then visually see for themselves if they feel that they have taken something from the lesson and achieved the goals. Also they are finding them such a help when it comes to revision. Additional benefits include helping them track what they have missed if they are absent, so clearly know what they need to catch up on and to be able to open their books as a teacher and quickly identify from the colours where individuals are struggling or finding aspects easy, and during one to one chats being able to use it to talk through what they feel that they need a little more help on.

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Selective breeding

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Selective breeding

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Inheritance, variation and evolution' 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 The task begins with pupils being asked to think > pair > share the specific characteristics that farmers might find favourable in cows, crops, chicken and sheep. The next activity involves pupils watching a video on selective breeding and how this process works, pupils will need to answer questions as they watch the video. The work can be assessed when they finish using the mark scheme provided. Pupils will now understand the process of selective breeding, the next task requires pupils to choose two dogs from a selection of dog breeds (pictures provided) to breed together in order to produce offspring with the traits the student would like. They can sketch a flow diagram to demonstrate how thus process occurs. The next activity is a worksheet on chicken breeds, once students have completed they can use the mark scheme to self or peer assess their work. The final activity focuses on the problems with selective breeding, pupils are provided with some information which could be tag-read as a class. This can then be used to answer some quick-check questions. Once the questions are complete this work can be self-assessed using the answers provided. The plenary task is for pupils to use a list of key words to write a summary sentence about what they have learnt from the lesson. All resources are included at the end of the presentation. Thanks for looking, if you have any questions please let me know in the comments section and any feedback would be appreciated :)
