Reversible reactions, equilibrium and Le Chatelier's principle PP and activity

(1)
A PP covering the AQA specification for Chemistry module 5.6.2 of the new AQA combined science Trilogy specification. The activity is to support the powerpoint and can be a whole class, group task or independent task (answers are provided). I have included some application questions to help students to link prior learning and extend understanding as well as help them to think outside the box. The PP is designed to help reduce your planning time by providing you with the main specification points for each topic so you can focus on making lessons creative and engaging. Each sub-topic includes a few quick multiple choice questions (MCQ) to assess students learning (AFL) Topics covered: Reversible reactions Energy changes and reversible reactions Equilibrium Effect of changing conditions on equilibrium (HT) Effect of changing concentration (HT) Effect of temperature (HT) Effect of pressure (HT)

Transform your Science department into Hogwarts for a week and have lessons full of wizarding fun and excitement whilst also extending students scientific understanding. Resources include: 1 - Poster - To advertise your week 2 - Vision and plan - An overview of how we organised our week with suggested activities and ways to involve all year groups 3 - Letter of acceptance - We gave one to each tutor group in preparation for the week and also printed loads out to come flying out of our homemade chimney (see photos) 4 - Schedule template - The schedule shows how we organised the weeks and also has the jobs for people to volunteer for in order to prepare resources and decorations for the week 5 - Instructions for elephants toothpaste (part of potions) 6 - Assignments - Print out double sided and hand out to students as part of a week long quiz, we put together certificates for students who completed each quiz and the aim was to complete all the quizzes by the end of the week and earn a certificate in each wizarding discipline (herbology, potions, transfiguration, charms and divination) - a good literacy activity to add tot he week 7 - Instructions for flame tests (part of potions) 8 - A selection of photos from our week for inspiration In addition our entire department dressed up as characters from the books for the whole week We had Harry Potter themed awards for budding scientists and for those who really stood out we organised a trip with the English department to The Harry Potter Experience to learn about the making of the films. All in all it is a great week and a lot of fun, plus everybody loves Harry Potter!

AQA GCSE Science exam dates 2019 posters/flyers for NEW Spec Combined and Separate sciences

(1)
2019 AQA Science exam dates in a clear fashion for students, parents and staff Ideas for use: Print out 2 per page and hand out at parents evenings Print out on A4 for each classroom Save a copy on your school website My students have always appreciated them as the exam timetables can be very confusing and often they want to know the dates before the school publishes them. NB: Please check the dates closer to the time as sometimes exam boards change the dates. These are correct as per the AQA website on 24/8/18 https://filestore.aqa.org.uk/admin/t_table_pdf/AQA-TT-GCSE-JUN19-CONFIRMED.PDF

Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos, Halloween SCIENCE based activities

(0)
We all love celebrating Halloween but we don't often know why Halloween is celebrated. These resources cover some of he historical aspects of Halloween and El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). The activities are linked to areas of various science curricula but is on the whole a cross-curricular resource for use around October 31st/November 1st. Suitable for all ages as you can select appropriate activities for your age group The topics covered include: The history of the Day of the Dead, Halloween and All Saints Day Ofrenda and the classical elements, earth, wind, fire and water Marigolds and their significance (plant dissection) The monarch butterfly and its significance (life cycle of a butterfly) The cyclical nature of agriculture (intensive farming, organic farming, hydroponics etc.) Each resource has multiple activities including basic discussion tasks and more detailed research based tasks. Where possible I have added ideas for alternative ways to carry out the activity in-case you wish to use it as a tutor time activity or whole lesson plan I hope this to be a multi-national resource as we all celebrate in different ways and our beliefs and traditions are all influenced by different historical events.

Newton's Laws of motion Skeleton PP for AQA Combined Science (Physics topic 6.5.4.2)

(1)
A PP covering the AQA specification for Physics module 6.5.4.2 of the new AQA combined science Trilogy specification. The resource is designed to help reduce your planning time by providing you with the main specification points for each topic so you can focus on making lessons creative and engaging. Topics covered: Newton's First Law Newton's Second Law Newton's Third Law I hope to have covered the entire year 11 course for the new specification (biology, Chemistry and Physics) by summer 2017 so please keep checking for more resources. I will also be making assessments to go alongside the resources ready for September
Classroom expectations activity
ScienceTeacherTES

Classroom expectations activity

(0)
To be used at the start of the year or whenever you feel your class need a reminder about how to behave in your classroom. The resource provides some ideas on classroom rules but essentially encourages the students to come up with their own rules with you in order to share the responsibility. I use it when I start working with a new class, at the start of each term and refer back to it at any point I feel the students need reminding. Keeping a uniform Power Point keeps consistency.

Momentum (HT) Skeleton PP for AQA Combined Science (Physics topic 6.5.5

(0)
A very simple PP covering the AQA specification for Physics module 6.5.5 of the new AQA combined science Trilogy specification. The resource is designed to help reduce your planning time by providing you with the main specification points for each topic so you can focus on making lessons creative and engaging. The resource is free as it is so small and basic. the PPs covering the rest of the course are more detailed and cover larger parts of the spec. Momentum is a Higher tier only topic so thought I would do it as a stand alone PP.
