Forces and Pressure KS3 Physics Topic - Complete SoW

Forces and Pressure KS3 Physics Topic - Complete SoW

This is a complete scheme of work comprising of 13 lessons, each with a powerpoint and a learning mat ready to be printed, two sets of homework, a differentiated revision resource, a higher and lower assessment and PQLA, and finally a high impact marking feedback generator. This entire scheme of work is intended to introduce KS3 into the AQA GCSE trilogy content and has that exam board in mind. It can however serve equally well supporting any other exam boards. It covers balanced forces, unbalanced forces, pressure in solids, liquids and gases, types of forces and much more. The price is a full 50% off the individual price!

Lesson 4 - Parallel Circuits - KS3 Electricity

Lesson 4 - Parallel Circuits - KS3 Electricity

This lesson covers parallel circuits and how they operate. included is a powerpoint, experiment worksheet and a learning mat. I liken parallel circuits to a motorway toll road to help visualise the concept first. The lesson is designed to fill around 50 mins, but could easily fill an hour with more experiment time. I have two free resources from the SoW if you would like to see how I structure these lessons. Please visit my shop to find them.

Lesson 11 -13 - Revision and Assessment - KS3 Electricity

Lesson 11 -13 - Revision and Assessment - KS3 Electricity

This is a big bundle of resources - a revision sheet for the whole Electricity topic, two assessments (H and F) with mark schemes, and a Personalised Question Level Analysis that you can complete, so the students can see exactly which questions/topic they struggled on most. I have two free resources from the SoW if you would like to see how I structure these lessons. Please visit my shop to find them.

Lesson 7-8 Plotting a Resistance Graph - KS3 Electricity

Lesson 7-8 Plotting a Resistance Graph - KS3 Electricity

This is designed to cover two lessons - lesson one, the class will use their results from the resistance of a wire experiment to attempt a graph of results on their own. You, as the teacher will then use the feedback generator provided to assess their graphs and provide detailed feedback (using a spreadsheet that can be printed out on sheet 2 of the excel spreadsheet). Lesson 2 would then comprise of the class reading their feedback and improving or extending their work, whichever is appropriate. This would also be a good point to mark the homework that comes free with this SoW. I have two free resources from the SoW if you would like to see how I structure these lessons.

AQA Physics Equations Quiz Pack

AQA Physics Equations Quiz Pack

This is a total of 13 quizzes, with answers that are designed to cover the 23 equations students are required to remember for the AQA specification. I also include exam question style questions, units questions and a few of the given equations as well. Answers are provided at the end. (sometimes in letter form, sometimes in word form) I used these as starters once a week with my year 11 classes last year and I kept a running tally of scores for my classes. It really helped cement their equation revision! At £10, you are getting these starters for less than £1 per resource. They take approximately 10-15 mins to complete and mark, to this is in total over 3 hours of lesson resources.

Lesson 3 - Series Circuits - KS3 Electricity

Lesson 3 - Series Circuits - KS3 Electricity

This is an introductory lesson into series circuits. I liken series circuits to a roller coaster at the start for a different analogy. This lesson also contains a practical activity, again with a worksheet provided. I have also added the learning mat for the lesson. I have two free resources from the SoW if you would like to see how I structure these lessons. Please visit my shop to find them.

Lesson 6 - Resistance of a Wire - KS3 Electricity

Lesson 6 - Resistance of a Wire - KS3 Electricity

This is an experiment brought down from GCSE to KS3 so that the students can have an early taste of a required practical. The class will have the majority of the lesson to complete the lengthy experiment after you have shown the modelling slides and demonstrated the experiment yourself. This lesson is followed up with a large mid-topic assessment piece. The lesson can be done in 50 mins, but could over run. Included are the ppt and learning mat. I have two free resources from the SoW if you would like to see how I structure these lessons. Please visit my shop to find them.

Lesson 5 - Current and Resistance - KS3 Electricity

Lesson 5 - Current and Resistance - KS3 Electricity

This is the first lesson in the SoW that needs an equation - it’s a required to remember equation for AQA physics. The lesson is a calculation heavy lesson and fistly models how to use power triangles and equations, then the students can attempt a differentiated demonstrate task. The most able students will likely need an extension task, so have one to hand. I have two free resources from the SoW if you would like to see how I structure these lessons. Please visit my shop to find them.

Lesson 9 - Electrostatics - KS3 Electricity

Lesson 9 - Electrostatics - KS3 Electricity

This is a fun lesson! You will need to book a Van Der Graaf generator for the demonstrate phase of the lesson and you will need balloons (and ideally, a balloon pump so that no moisture enters the balloon for maximum effect). The ppt is heavily animated (it took a long time to make) but does get the concept across well. I have two free resources from the SoW if you would like to see how I structure these lessons. Please visit my shop to find them.

KS3 Electricity Unit - Designed to follow into AQA

KS3 Electricity Unit - Designed to follow into AQA

This bundle is an entire 13 lesson topic, complete with resources and activities for KS3 Electricity. Some of the items are free if you would like to see them before buying. For the whole topic, the price is £15, making each lesson cost around £1.20, but you also get assessments, a PQLA, a homework and a feedback generator. This SoW was taught this year at my school and was well received by the students.

Lesson 10 - Charge and Current - KS3 Electricity

Lesson 10 - Charge and Current - KS3 Electricity

An equation heavy lesson using the Q = It equation and concept. Again, I emphasise how to use the equation a lot in this lesson. Your most able classes will likely also need an extension task with this lesson, especially if you have 1 hour lessons. Included are the ppt and the learning mat for the lesson. I have two free resources from the SoW if you would like to see how I structure these lessons. Please visit my shop to find them.

Revision of Electricity Topic - AQA 2016 New Specifcation

Revision of Electricity Topic - AQA 2016 New Specifcation

This is a revision task intended to summarise the whole of the circuits and electricity topic on the new AQA Physics specification. I have used the specification itself to ensure I covered as much as possible, however I did want to keep it to two pages maximum, so one or two things are absent. Print this back to back to reduce paper wastage. The last slide is an extension task - students can cut out these question cards and write their own questions using the revision sheet to help them. These can then be passed to other members of the group.

Revision of Particle Model of Matter - AQA 2016 New Physics Specification

Revision of Particle Model of Matter - AQA 2016 New Physics Specification

This is intended as a revision worksheet summary of the particle model topic in AQA Physics 2016. This only includes the content relevant to combined science, not Trilogy (I have made a separate one for this.) Print it out back to back to save on paper. I have used the AQA specification to create all of these questions and as such should not be missing anything major from the topic. The last slide are question cards you can hand out as an extension for students who finish to make their own questions for their peers.
