Mrs Hughes

Subject leader for KS3 & Teacher of Biology Here are some of my resources that I have tried & tested. I like use independent learning tasks, allowing the student to do more work in the classroom. I also use a lot of variation theory in my tasks. Exposing students to different scenarios & different ways of asking the same questions.
