I have been teaching for 6 years, originally training in Science and covering a wide range of subjects since. I have tried to provide schemes of work for each area - I know as an NQT and when a subject was new to me, this is what was missing on TES! I hope that these resources will help to kick-start your planning and make life that little bit easier.

This is an independent learning activity for teaching energy resources. It was taken from the Practical Action website, but I have included my own PPT which is an adapted version of the activity. Students have to research different energy resources and decide which would be appropriate for the different island communities. It encourages teamwork, independent learning and problem solving.

SEN Photosynthesis resource pack

(0)
A selection of resources suitable for lower ability / SEN teaching of Photosynthesis. The photosynthesis equation card sort is very simple, and I used this as a starter which could be left out on tables as a visual reminder when needed. The Photosynthesis cards can be used in a couple of ways - I started by using the keyword and picture sections to build literacy, and then added in the definitions. Definitions have word blanks to get students thinking. Spell check - 3 versions of each word, only one is correct, circle the correct one. Greenhouse worksheet - used to aid discussion on how greenhouse features can aid photosynthesis.

Why exercise?

(0)
PPT to discuss Metabolic rate and exercise. Begins with looking at types of exercise and how to measure fitness, BMI and the problems with relying on BMI as a measure of health, then there is a section for more able students to look at health food claims. This was a really useful section to help students see that they need to question what they read and make informed decisions about what is healthy. BMI calculations included.
Poor Health Market Place

Poor Health Market Place

(0)
Resources to run a Market Place activity on Poor Health. Instructions for the market place activity are outlined in the PPT - activity structure taken from The Teachers Toolkit. Essentially, you take large amounts of information and condense them into pictorial form, then the group have to either teach their topic to others, or go around being taught and then share all the information with the rest of their group. It is a great way to get students thinking, and is easy to differentiate by altering the amount of words they are allowed to use on their posters. This activity is always a favourite of my students.
