GCSE Bio- Reproduction (Homeostasis) in 30 mins

GCSE Bio- Reproduction (Homeostasis) in 30 mins

This revision lesson covers hormones in reproduction, contraception and hormones to treat infertility from homeostasis. This lesson is designed to be a quick recall lesson that lasts approx 30 mins. The activities range from spot the mistakes in IVF to guess the type of contraception. This allows students to recap the key areas and address any misconceptions they might have in the lead up to their exams. The lesson also includes low demand, standard demand and high demand questions. There is a worksheet for the students to use as they follow the lesson and they can use it as a revision resource afterwards (I recommend to print it in A3). This is found towards the end of the ppt. This lesson is one of many in a series of 30 min revision lessons so do have a look at my other resources.

KS1/2/3: Food Diary

KS1/2/3: Food Diary

I was looking online for a booklet-style food diary that looked good, and alas I could not find one! So I spent a couple of minutes putting this together before school this morning. Graphics are by GraphicsPassion, and the font can be downloaded here: https://www.dafont.com/sea-balance.font? I collected the graphics onto the back page so you can play around with them as images if needed. The days can also be reordered to fit your timetable. Hope it’s helpful!

PSHE: New PSHE 2018-19 Part 2

PSHE: New PSHE 2018-19 Part 2

10 hours of new PSHE lessons on some of the most pertinent and pressing issues facing students in 2018/19. These topics have been identified by the PSHE Association as essentials for the coming year and so this bundle has been planned following their recommendations. This is part two of a two part pack. PART ONE All 10 lesson packs are complete with at least one hour-long powerpoint, accompanying differentiated worksheets, clip links with questions, plenaries, clear LOs, starters and engaging, varied main task activities.All are well differentiated to three levels throughout to enable clear evidence of progress for all students. These lessons have been selected to be in this bundle as they all focus on relatively new issues or ones which need further awareness amongst young people in an ever-changing world full of mental health issues, new technology, crime and potentially tough futures which lie ahead. These resources have been highly-rated individually by TES users, follow the same consistent format and are easy to follow. There is zero extra work required, although each lesson is still completely editable too. I use all of these myself as a Head of PSHE and Citizenship and I really hope you find them excellent value. I’ve put literally months of time into this to make these lessons top quality for my own school team. I have ‘One Year of PSHE’ Packs for Years 7, 8, 9 and KS4. You can check them out at the shop link below. Please leave me a review and I’ll send you any other resource of your choice for free. Many more inexpensive or free resources at my shop: EC_Resources
