Edexcel 9-1 revision timetable - this is for the mock exam in May

(6)
Revision timetable and resource bank. To use: print and give to the students, put it up in the lab, send it home to parents or publish as an electric copy. QR codes and hyperlinked topic titles take the students to a revision resource (mostly BBC Bitesize), on most days there is a key diagram and a selection of subtopics to revise. This resource is designed to chunk the challenge of revision, giving students two months to revise every topic required for the mock exam that Edexcel are using to calibrate results. The calendar starts on the first of March and goes up until two days before the first exam. Revising is a vital skill that many teachers neglect to teach their pupils. Most students struggle to plan their revision and rely on pre-exam cramming, as these students will not sit their final exam this year we need to ensure we help them retain the information. Spreading it out like this makes it an achievable challenge and will help them with long-term retention.

CB5 - Health and Disease - Edexcel 2016 (assessment, tracking and lessons)

12 Resources
Bundle includes Edexcel 9-1 - topic 5. This is a 10 lesson bundle of Edexcel 9-1 topic 5 Health and Disease lessons. Tracking, differentiation, assessment and AFL are build into the lessons. Lesson 0 - entry test Lesson 1 - health Lesson 2 - communicable disease Lesson 3 - spread and prevention of disease Lesson 4a - sexuallty transmitted disease Lesson 4b - chemical and physical barriers Lesson 5 - immune response Lesson 6 - antibiotics Lesson 7 - non-communicable disease Lesson 8 - obesity and BMI Lesson 9 - assessment and revision These are 'plug and play' lessons designed for ease of application and good to outstanding lessons. I am very pleased with this series of lessons as it has inspired a difficult year 10 cohort and increased motivation in science.

Osmosis, diffusion and active transport

(2)
The lesson make much use of AFL and directs students to the most appropriate task. The lessons starts by describing different situations that diffusion takes place in. The understanding is then assessed by a hinge question with differentiated task as the outcome for this. The lesson moves on to discuss osmosis before assessing understanding and directing students to the most appropriate task. Active transport is reviewed before learning is concluded with an exit ticket.

The lesson is specific the new Edexcel 9-1 GCSE and part of topic 5. The lesson starts by discussing the process of pathogens entering the body and the response by the lymphocytes, this is does over 6 slides with fun animations and covers the required learning outcome. There is a brief discussion of vaccination before learning is assessed via a 'deep' hinge point question. There are two activities that, depending on students understanding can be done from this and an extension task. The lesson finishes with an exam question and reflection in the Learning Outcomes sheet.

CB7a - Hormones. Edexcel 9-1

(1)
The lesson starts with recall questions and then moves on to a thinking for learn activity. Students then watch a video and answer some questions based on the video before summerising their understanding. The students then do an exam style question before an exit ticket. I think the resource is good an will promote good learning however it is not as detailed as many of my other lessons so I have listed it for free..... enjoy.

CB8c Edexcel - The heart

(3)
The lesson starts with a short recall quiz before introducing the idea of the heart via and independent research task. After this it is a good opportunity to do a dissection and get the students to annotate on the heart print out the key component of the heart. The lesson then moves to calculate stroke volume and do some graph interpretation of that.
