I am a super dyslexic teacher, with a dash of ADD, all my resources are built with access in mind, because honestly, if they were'nt I wouldnt be able to read them. Note the pastel tones, chunking and clear notation ques. As such my resources are also super easy to scaffold or stretch, and definately easy to replicate. Please enjoy, and hang in there, at whatever school you're at, I can guarentee that those kids need you in their lives a lot more than you realise.

A brilliant little lesson that is a great visual, if you have a doorway and corridor to demo with it then its super handy, a ripple tank would also be a great demo, however there's everything you need on here to demonstrate how waves defract and reflect. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/matthewharman777 Be weird, be funny, be gross, have fun, play, stick to your routines and find that little spark of madness we all have and electrocute the class with it! My style of teaching isn’t for everyone, I’m a dyslexic teacher who’s heard it all, my lessons are all catered towards accessibility (because if they were not I’d never be able to read them myself). Everything is short sharp and to the point, I don’t believe in endless writing, reams of printing, spoon feeding diagrams or pointless activities. Every minute matters! Be sure to check out all my other resources, as a personal goal I intend to share all my resources at least once because hey, the government isn���t going to make it easier and we both know you are reading this way outside of your work hours.

The culmination of this series, students are given free reign to seperate out iron filings, salt, sand and pebbles, to increase the challenge you can add wood chippings and for super high ability vegetable oil. Nothing teaches better than allowing student sto exercise and apply thier knowledge, you can easily differentiate by dropping clues and hints or even better you can make it accountable by weighing the mixtures before and the total of each pile after. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/matthewharman777 Be weird, be funny, be gross, have fun, play, stick to your routines and find that little spark of madness we all have and electrocute the class with it!

For my year 7's this lesson is one of the first lessons they have with me, its a great opportunity to demonstrate that they are being trusted with expensive equipment but that there are big expectations to live up to, genuinely they are nearly always totally shocked once they see some onion cells or pondwater. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/matthewharman777 Be weird, be funny, be gross, have fun, play, stick to your routines and find that little spark of madness we all have and electrocute the class with it!

KS3 P10.2 Pitch and Volume

(0)
I LOVE this lesson, anyonewho's a fan of KISS will love it too. Essentially you'll start off with comparing the slinky model (which everyone uses) to draw sound waves with volume and pitch, insert a few comical voices here and there and you're away, the students will have these logged in their books. Then the real fun begins, your challenge then is to get students to gradually improve a sound wave on the board to get KISS's 'I wanna rock and roll all night' out of a monotone drool and into the sound it should be. After their inevitable success then you can play a full clip of what KISS actually look like (class gasps), after that there's a ghost hunt with fairly comical names to do. Solid learning, comical twists and the added satisfaction of kids walking all over school singing KISS at the top of their little lungs! https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/matthewharman777 Be weird, be funny, be gross, have fun, play, stick to your routines and find that little spark of madness we all have and electrocute the class with it!

Activities galore! this lesson has students running all over the place, full engagement and not much teacher talk at all, most students have a basic knowledge of the solar system and this lesson gives them a chance to lead the teaching in a way which is not always possible for KS3.

KS3 P5.1 Alternating Current

(0)
Get out the oscilloscope and practice your best Pete Tong impression, buzzing flies and revving motorbikes fun. Alternating current for the new AQA curriculum is rolled into the national grid model making it a little bit more of a stretch to get it all in, fortunately there's a lot of prior knowledge to build on and this lesson takes full advantage of that. Use a torch and a desk lamp in front of a visualiser and you can get a pretty decent demo of AC and DC current (the lamp flickers, the torch does not). https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/matthewharman777 Be weird, be funny, be gross, have fun, play, stick to your routines and find that little spark of madness we all have and electrocute the class with it!
