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.

Revision slides for students to complete. It takes a full lesson (suggested starter and plenary included). The students are given strict time limits to complete each card and it can be used either as a research lesson or as a teacher led lesson. My year 7 students found this topic very difficult, so I used it as a teacher led activity - they definitely found the topic easier at the end of this lesson. Colour coded for differentiation (red for lower ability; blue for middle ability and green for higher ability) so that you can select which students do which tasks, with opportunity to progress for 'red' and 'blue' students.

two worksheets, one for Biology students and one for Higher tier combined students, differentiated to 2 levels (hence 4 worksheets in total). AQA references: Biology: 4.5.2.4 (temperature) and 4.5.3.3 (water level control)/combined: 4.5.3.7 (thyroxine) and 4.5.3.2 (blood glucose) Edexcel references: Biology: 7.10B (temperature and water level control)/ combined: 7.3 (thyroxine) and 7.14 and 7.14 (blood glucose) Useful for consolidation of the term 'negative feedback' and revision of examples encountered in the course. Also has a real life example (thermostat) and relates negative feedback to their own feelings for re-enforcement. Model answers included.
