This spreadsheet is a model I made one year for our KS3 Y7/8/9 topics. It has a lot of stuff in for the new framework with comments which fly out of learning aims for the year. Might be useful when planning you own and can be cut and pasted and moved around!

SMART Science KS3 Revision Quizzes

(2)
Here is a set of 18 KS3 revision resources for SMART Science based on the two year KS3. Each quiz is designed to fit the scheme and has some challenging questions in a HTML5 format from KS4 as well to see if you can push them. You can view these quizzes on any device you have, they will all work, big screen or small and will keep pupils happy for ages. http://animatedscience.co.uk/blog/ispring-revision2

P2 AQA Physics Revision Tarsia

This is a tarsia puzzle for 1st half of P2 Physics. The file Tarisa-Puzzle-Rename must be renamed to a XJSW format file so you can edit the original. I also put the quiz exported for a quick print.

Here is a collection of Puzzles to use for Tarsia to cover most of the AQA AS Units http://animatedscience.co.uk/blog/2016/tarsia-puzzles-for-a-level-physics
AQA Spec A Chapter 2 Quarks and Leptons Tarsia

AQA Spec A Chapter 2 Quarks and Leptons Tarsia

(3)
This is a tarsia puzzle for revision based on all the materials in Chapter 2 from Nelson Thornes scheme for AQA Spec A AS Physics. The chapter title is Quarks and Leptons and it covers all the particle interactions. It is more advanced as it is a hexagon with added extras on the sides and often two answers for each pair. It should take A*-D students about 30-40 minutes in total. You need the free Tarsia formulator to make it work! Don't give me one star when you have not read the post!

Maintaining Curiosity - Science Osfted Advice 2013

Dear All, I was luck enough today to attend a meeting of local Heads of Science at Redhill school, Notts. We had two speakers one from the SLC Martin Reece and also the ofsted subject lead for Science. From what we talked about I have gathered some documents from various places: ofsted, ASE and also added my own notes from what Brian Cartwright said to us (my own jottings). This should be of use to any Science department from Nov 2013 onwards. Certainly the ASE one should be the backbone of anything we are doing in Science. A very long read but super! Enjoy!

I have put together about 70 slides from my best space resources. All the pictures are out on the internet, mainly from NASA but free to use for education. If you wish to have the PPT I made them from, just download from here. https://animatedscience.co.uk/blog/2017/space-revision

AQA A Phys Chapter 1 Matter & Radiation Tarsia

(4)
This is a tarsia puzzle for revision based on all the materials in Chapter 1 from Nelson Thornes scheme for AQA Spec A AS Physics. The chapter title is Matter & Radiation and it covers all the particle basics. It is more advanced as it is a hexagon with added extras on the sides and often two answers for each pair. It should take A*-D students about 30-40 minutes in total.

Minerals and Rocks from Natural History Museum

(1)
This resource has been created from the exhibits shown at the Minerals Gallery at the Natural History Museum in London. Each item has been photographed in the case and then information compiled from open sources to enable students / teachers to explore rocks and minerals in greater detail. Each slide has a QR code to enable students from KS3-5 to do further research and there is an accompanying worksheet with some ideas. Please feel free to adapt for non commercial use in schools for educational purposes. However, all photographs are the property of www.animatedscience.co.uk with a compressed version available for this here. http://animatedscience.co.uk/gallery/ and original images available by request for commercial projects or educational publishers.

Here is a 1st test version of my Atomic Physics software for A-Level students. This one is a rough version to test online which has the following features… 1) Historic rotating time line of the Scientists which did a lot of discoveries in the field of Atomic Physics. You can download images to make a worksheet or your own poster. 2) A series of video clips in FLV format with menu from Dr Brian Cox about particle physics. I will be upgrading this soon so video player will resize to fill larger area on click.

This list of demos is very simple and will help you spark off an exciting lesson. From Methane Bubbles to Clock reactions. I have not done all myself but it is a useful start. Just check them first to see that they work ok

This is the whole series from Dr Brian Cox 'In Search of Giants'. Essential viewing for any pupil taking IB, AQA Spec A Particle Physics. Gives short bits which can be used as HW and revision and in classroom. Originally lifted from Youtube and preserved as it is very had to find the whole series. I emailed Dr Cox to ask permission and there has been no objection to hosting them here! Link is certainly ok!

This is a simple 25 question quiz which you can use to test your graph analysis skills for Higher Level Y9 Students or younger! I had to recode and update the flash on this one so any issues please comment but I think it works ok with flash v10. They can try it as many times as they like!
Electric Current in a Wire Causes Magnetic Field

Electric Current in a Wire Causes Magnetic Field

(0)
The following three animations build on the idea that a flow of electrons creates a magnetic field around the wire in which they flow. If you then bend this wire you get field effects which can build to form a classical shaped NS magnet. We can turn the magnet on and off which is useful and also produces a lightweight magnet which can can control the field and field strength. It is all based on the right hand grip rule or Curl
Catapult Field

Catapult Field

This animation shows how a horseshoe magnet can be used to create a catapult field effect. A current is passed through the wire creating a circular field around the wire which interacts and throws is out of the North South field. Also you can rotate the hand with the cursor to use Flemings left hand rule. FBI (Force, B-Field, Current)
