The lesson starts with 8 recall questions before discussing the components of blood. The information is summerised in a carousel style task looking at the function and adaption of each component of blood. The lesson then moves to looking at the different blood vessels and a adaptions of each. This is a lesson very much focused on memory and short activities.

Over arching concepts in biology. The lesson is part of a series of lessons that cover topic one of the new GCSE (to be sat in 2017). There is a focus on a creature called Demodex, a parasite that lives in 17% of the populations skin pores. The lesson stresses the differences an advantages and disadvantages of light vs electron microscopes. The lesson features a hinge question to determine students ability which leads into a Cloze activity for lower ability students or an open ended research task for the higher ability.

On the Wasted Years report recommendations this is the first lesson in a scheme of work that looks at preparing Year 6 students for secondary science. It is written by a secondary science teacher for the cross phase development program being run 2016-17. The spec is based on the interim assessment framework. The lesson states by reviewing solids, liquids and gases before starting to introduce the idea of particles and linking to the properties of the state of matter. This is modelled and presented to the students before they demonstrate their understanding using small balls/ marbles. The lesson then assesses understanding before directing the learning appropriate worksheet. The lesson review learning by the student producing a flow diagram and annotating inter conversions.

Topic three lesson four focuses on Alleles. The lesson starts with a review of previous learning. The lesson moves onto an independent research task to help embed meta-cognitive regulation, this is the discussed via teacher and slides to ensure pupils have understood. Understanding is assessed via a hinge point question and a bronze (mini lesson), silver (structured task) or gold task (structured open) is allocated to evidence differentiation and give the students the most appropriate task. students then get to see and exam question which is modelled on the board before the lesson concludes with an exit ticket.

These 12 lessons aim to engage and promote progress in year 9-10 students. From experience and due to the importance of this topic I have broken down some of the topics within the module if they are of high importance as this ensures that learning takes place. The lessons specialise in AFL which is built in at appropriate places.

The lesson start by engaging the students with a guess the LQ activity. The students then are guided through producing a mind-map of the spread and prevention of the exam spec diseases before they attempt a 6 mark question. As a class they review the mark scheme self assess their own work and redraft to perfect there answer.
