Hi, I'm a secondary science teacher from a comprehensive school in Cornwall. Just selling and sharing on resources which I've put my time into that have proven successful with students. As my school runs AQA GCSE Combined Science for GCSE and OCR Physics A for A Level, these are the specifications my resources are aimed at. I am hopeful of tailoring them to other exam boards in the future though.

AQA GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy - Paper 1 Key Questions

(0)
Useful for student revision for AQA GCSE Combined Science Trilogy papers. These are assessment objective 1 based questions designed to test the students’ ability to recall the key information from the specification for the Physics, Chemistry and Biology Paper 1s. At the end of each set of questions is also a set of questions covering the key points to recall for the required practical acitivities relevant to the topics, as well as some basic math skills checks. Excellent for supporting lower ability candidates to build a solid foundation in their subject knowledge before building in the higher order explanation and analysis skills needed for AO2 and AO3.

Useful for student revision for AQA GCSE Combined Science Trilogy papers. These are assessment objective 1 based questions designed to test the students’ ability to recall the key information from the specification for the Physics, Chemistry and Biology Paper 2s. At the end of each set of questions is also a set of questions covering the key points to recall for the required practical acitivities relevant to the topics, as well as some basic math skills checks. Excellent for supporting lower ability candidates to build a solid foundation in their subject knowledge before building in the higher order explanation and analysis skills needed for AO2 and AO3.
AQA GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy AO1 & AO2 Questions Complete Set
andrewdavis296andrewdavis296

AQA GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy AO1 & AO2 Questions Complete Set

6 Resources
Collection of assessment objective 1 and assessment objective 2 questions covering the entire AQA GCSE Combined Science specfication for the Trilogy pathway. The questions are broken down by paper (i.e. Biology paper 1 & paper 2 etc.) At the end of each set of assessment objective 1 questions is also a set of questions covering the key points to recall for the required practical acitivities relevant to the topics, as well as some basic math skills checks. Excellent for supporting lower ability candidates to build a solid foundation in their subject knowledge before building in the higher order explanation and analysis skills needed for AO2 and AO3. Once students can demonstrate their recall by comfortably answering the assessment objective 1 questions, they can develop their explanation skills with the assessment objective 2 questions.
GCSE Science Data & Graphs Lesson

GCSE Science Data & Graphs Lesson

(0)
A single slide power point lesson outline to guide students through the activities on the sheet. The aim of the lesson is to practice the students’ data and graph skills, developing mathematical techniques and working scientifically skills. Plenty of opportunity within the lesson to develop understanding using questioning. Could be used as a revision lesson or as a re-introduction to graphs, variables, means etc.
OCR Physics A H556 Binding Energy Group Task
andrewdavis296andrewdavis296

OCR Physics A H556 Binding Energy Group Task

(0)
This task is designed for group work. A group of students uses the information on the sheet and the periodic table to calculate the mass defects and binding energies for a range of isotopes. The data can then be used to plot the binding energy per nucleon graph.
AQA GCSE Science: Physics Equation Practice
andrewdavis296andrewdavis296

AQA GCSE Science: Physics Equation Practice

(1)
A set of 38 questions based on the equations in the AQA GCSE Combined specification that students need to recall and apply. The first 19 questions introduce each equation needed and the next 19 repeat the questions with new values for practice. This set of questions will also test student’s mastery of units, prefixes and standard form. Answers included.
A Level Physics Radioactivity Spreadsheet

A Level Physics Radioactivity Spreadsheet

(0)
This resources allows A Level physics students to investigate radioactivity using a spreadsheet, specifcially to help cover specification point 6.4.3 g of the OCR Physics A course which requires students to model radioactive decay using a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet does not hide any of its formulae, so it is a useful tool for students to see how the spreadsheet generates its data. There are 4 questions as part of the spreadsheet that students need to answer, so the activity can work well used in a computer room for a lesson or as a stand alone homework. In my experience, this activity really enhances the students’ understanding of the exponential nature of the decay equations.

OCR Physics A H156 Long Answer Questions

OCR Physics A H156 Long Answer Questions

(1)
Students often struggle to write exhaustively on a topic. I designed these questions to encourage deeper thought on the physics of a situation and to drive students to write as much as they can, rather than to simply make as many points as there are marks available. These work excellently as either written homework questions, or questions that can be discussed in class.

AQA GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy AO2 Questions Complete Set

3 Resources
Collection of assessment objective 2 questions covering the entire AQA GCSE Combined Science specfication for the Trilogy pathway. The questions are broken down by paper (i.e. Biology paper 1 & paper 2 etc.) Excellent for supporting candidates to develop the skill of applying the information they have learned to new contexts and pushing their knowledge and understanding to be able to explain why and how certain phenomena and processes are observed.

As answers have now been added to the Physics Equation Practice question set, I am uploading them free here for anyone who downloaded the original problem set before the answers were available.
Extended Writing in A Level Physics

Extended Writing in A Level Physics

(0)
This is a bundle of 2 extended writing questions covering Ionising radiation and Thermodynamics. Included are blank assessment booklets for the students to complete (I usually run these as timed essays) as well as exemplar answers for discussion afterwards and for students to compare their own answers with. This has proven a really useful way to get my students to reflect on their use of language in their written communication - a skill that is often overlooked in physics.
Required Practicals Summary Sheets - AQA GCSE Combined Science - Trilogy Paper 1s

Required Practicals Summary Sheets - AQA GCSE Combined Science - Trilogy Paper 1s

(0)
A set of summary sheets for the required practicals specified in the Biology, Chemistry and Physics paper 1 exams for AQA GCSE combined science trilogy. The sheets match the required practicals to the relevant papers and encourage students to review the theory, variables, methods, results, analysis and conclusions covered by each. Also provided is an exemplar sheet, showing the kind of information that could be included for each required practical. This can be used to support weaker students or as a starting point for more able students to add further detail to.
