Gifted and Talented Challenge

(0)
Produced for gifted and talented KS2 students to spark aspiration, and develop skills. As this is open-ended it could be used with students of any ability, as it has scaffolds and prompts to support thinking and investigation if needed. Could be used over a long period of time, to drop in and out of, or as holiday homework. There are 10 challenges, which can be completed individually in isolation, as a complete set, and in any order. A range of topics are included to develop a wider range of skills, and to capture student interest.

New GCSE - Disease topic (series of lessons)

(0)
Used with a high ability year 11 class. - Covers intro to the topic, with key definitions. - Graphs to allow some analysis (e.g. comparing the main causes of death in developed vs less developed countries, comparisons between incomes within countries, and genders --> great for developing critical analysis and reasoning). - Case studies of Communicable diseases (including video links, and discussion of sociocultural and economic impacts) - Introduction to immune system --> I used plasticine and got them to make stop motion videos of phagocytes and lymphocytes, using their phone (worked really well!)

Resource used over a series of lessons with a high ability class - covering adaptations of leaves, pigments, and the light dependent and independent reactions. According to the new AQA A level syllabus. - first cover a simplified version of the Light Dependent Reaction (as per the textbook), and then went through the version no longer specified in the syllabus (photosystems and cyclic/non-cyclic) - can be tailored according to class ability.

AQA A-Level Populations and Evolution

(0)
Used with high ability year 13 class. Covers key definitions, Hardy-Weinberg, Natural selection and Speciation. Practical activity to demonstrate the example of Peppered Moths. I also used a circus activity with 15 questions on HW equilibrium. I laminated the questions on separate sheets, with the answer to the previous question on the back, and spread these around the room for students to have a go at.

Year 8 Science Investigation Skills Passport

Year 8 Science Investigation Skills Passport

(0)
Used with my high ability year 8 class - taught separate sciences so this passport is titled Biology, which can obviously be amended. Glued the passport into the front of their books, and added their 'passport photo' in which they drew themselves as scientists. Investigation skills linked heavily to the KS3 National Curriculum. Following a practical students write the data in the table heading, and tick off the skills they have developed/demonstrated. Could enhance this with a red amber green system to show the progress they are making towards a skill. When writing up a practical I encourage them to finish with a reflection in which they link back to these skills. I found previously they struggled to describe skills so this gives them a prompt. Aim to demonstrate each skill through a range of different practicals across the year, such that by then end they may hope to achieve 'expert' status. I produced this to link to the idea of the new A-level CPAC criteria and the idea of demonstrating mastery of practical techniques. With each new book they may receive a new passport.
