This is the first lesson (maybe two lessons) in a topic I made called Chemistry Corner for Year 7 Chemistry. The lesson includes ideas about the differences between solids, liquids and gases using a Venn diagram (which I would suggest enlarge to A3 and laminate along with the cards for future use), materials circus practical, properties of solids liquids and gases as well as an introduction to changes of state. This scheme of work was made when Levels were used in KS3 so this may need to be amended for your own assessment criteria at KS3.
This bundle of resources covers: 3.1.1 Periodicity 3.1.2 Group 2 3.1.3 The Halogens 3.1.4 Qualitative Analysis The resource includes powerpoints for every lesson, practical activities including teacher/technician sheets, exam questions, mark schemes as well as the homework booklet and mark scheme covering these topics. I hand out the homework booklet at the start of the topic (e.g. start of Periodicity) and collect it in at the end of the topic (Qualitative Analysis). The questions have been typed up from inside the OCR textbook as no electronic copy was available. We use SOLO symbols to differentiate between different levels of progress. Please let me know any feedback or improvements. More units to follow!

This is the first lesson in the Electrons, bonding and structure topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry. The powerpoint is long and will probably take 2-3 lessons based on the ability of the class! It covers GCSE concept of electron shells compared to sub-levels, orbitals, rules for filling, short hand configurations and deciding on the blocks in the periodic table. I have included my tip on how to best illustrate energy levels, sub-levels and orbitals in a diagram drawn on the board if you check the notes at the bottom of the slide!
Third topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry. All lessons fully resourced with powerpoints, worksheets progress sheet of the whole topic, PAG worksheets, multiple choice assessment and homework booklet with markscheme. I hand out the homework booklets at the start of every topic and collect in at the end to mark using www and ebi. The homework booklet questions have been sourced from the end of Chapter questions within the OCR textbook and typed up as no electronic copy was available. The mark scheme corresponds to the OCR pages in the textbook as well. This is the whole topic for Acids and Redox fully resourced 2.1.4-2.1.5 according to the OCR Specification. I have included the 10 for 10 (10 qs in 10 mins) which is a multiple choice summative assessment I used after I taught 2.1.1-2.1.5 to get the students used to multiple choice questions and assess their progress. The answers are at the back of the test. SOLO symbols are used to differentiate between tasks. Hope you find it useful and please let me know of any suggestions or improvements. More topics to follow!
