Currently selling and providing free resources for all three sciences, predominantly for GCSE, although there are some KS3 and A level chemistry resources available. Lots of the resources focus on differentiation and exam technique as I feel there is a profession- wide weakness in these areas.

Negative feedback, Adrenaline and thyroxine for higher tier GCSE Biology exam technique lesson

(1)
This is a full lesson with prescriptive instructions, aimed at AQA and Edexcel specifications (references included), but would work for other boards. The main objectives are to research the information and to practice use of command words and general exam technique. The students are given exam style questions and in groups, are to research the information required to produce 'perfect answers' They then assess the answers given to different questions by others and make adjustments to the answers, as necessary. Exam questions are tailored to ability and there is a focus throughout on exam command words. The lesson ends with the students attempting to assign a grade to the exam questions they have been exposed to during the lesson and there is a suggested homework, where the students produce follow-up notes. Suggested 'indicative content' is included in the teacher notes, but are intended to guide the teacher, rather than for the students to compare given answers with. However, this could be used for this purpose, if you prefer. Also included is a slide that gives notes needed to answer the questions, if you are a bookless school. This may be projected up, depending on the layout of your classroom, or printed.

KS3 new spec naming compounds (based on the SMART science course)

(0)
I used this lesson with year 7's - hint: the main mistake the higher ability students make is not reading the first part of the sheet, which contains the information they need to complete the task. There is a teacher -led part where an explanation is given on how to name sulphides, etc and then the students have a go. Then, another teacher lead part to explain '-ates'. The students then have a go. DIFFERENTIATION: lower ability: tasks in red boxes middle ability: tasks in blue boxes higher ability: tasks in green boxes/on separate sheet for second part of the lesson OPPORTUNITIES FOR PROGRESSION: student can go on the next level task and middle/higher ability students are given a challenge . Timings given in the lesson plan are approximate.
