Updated and improved on 29th November 2016 and then again on 22nd August 2017. A complete, and ready to deliver, high quality KS4 / GCSE lesson from Barclayfox. This is a complete lesson from start to end, you do not need to spend many hours carefully planning, creating, resourcing and improving this lesson after each use. I have already spent those hours preparing this lesson for my students and improving it over many years. There is nothing for you to do but give it a quick look through and familiarise yourself with it. Lesson objectives: * Explain how “ions” are formed. * Understand the properties of alpha, beta and gamma radiation. * Compare alpha, beta and gamma in terms of their abilities to penetrate and ionise. The lesson contains: Notes to help the teacher. Starter task - unscramble the words race. Recall Quiz questions with answers. Card Sort activity - with answers. Definitions (scientific literacy) activity. Questions throughout – all answers are provided. Theory slides (minimal and interactive – not ‘death by powerpoint’). Gap fills. Group work - excellent Kinaesthetic activity with questioning – to cement learning and provide some fun. Video clip link (carefully selected – this alone can save you a lot of time).

Space, solar system, stars, galaxies, moons, light years and the universe. Complete KS3 lesson.

(1)
This is lesson 1 in a series of 6 high quality lessons that fully and expertly delivers all the points within BOTH the NEW KS3 Department for Education 'Space Physics' National Curriculum and the AQA KS3 specification / syllabus sections '3.7.2 Universe' and '3.1.2 Gravity'. Updated and Improved 24th January 2018. STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES - these are given towards the bottom of this text. STARTER Pupils will start the lessons by thinking and working in pairs in a race to unscramble some of the key words in today's lesson. After revealing the title and lesson outcomes students self assess against their current understanding of this topic. MAIN and MAIN and MAIN.... This lesson is 'chunked' into discrete sections to support learning and engender positive behaviour by keeping students interested and focused. All points of the specification are addressed. There are various student activities such as gap fill, matching, reviewing a solar system model, words unscramble, literacy activity, questions and answers, think/pair/share, quiz, sort into size order, mnemonic, self-assessment, peer assessment etc. PLENARY In the plenary activity pupils complete a quiz and then peer assess it to uncover how much they have learnt during the lesson. They then self assess themselves against the lesson outcomes. Students who need further support set themselves additional homework to enhance learning of today’s lesson. EXTENSION ACTIVITIES These are provided just in case any group requires them. All resources are included in this excellent lesson, there is nothing for you to do but deliver it. OUTCOMES - STUDENTS LEARN TO: * Understand the structure of the solar system and be able to draw it with the planets in the correct order. * Explain what keeps the planets in place 'orbiting' the sun. * Understand what 'stars' and 'galaxies' and 'light years' are. * Use new literacy words such as 'orbit' and 'light year'. * Comprehend the vast size of the Milky Way and the Universe. Thank you for looking, your positive feedback would be very much appreciated :) Lesson 1 in a series of 6: 1. Solar system, stars and galaxies and the universe. 2. Geocentric and heliocentric solar system models 3. Seasons. 4. Gravity, weight and mass. 5. Exploring and observing the universe. 6. The moon’s phases.

Sleep, insomnia, hints and tips, wellbeing. Hints and tips to help you sleep.

Hints and tips on how to fall asleep and get good quality sleep. This is not a lesson as such. However students who are short of sleep find it very very difficult to learn, so hopefully this will help them. I wrote this as one of my colleagues (yes he is a teacher!) is having a problem sleeping, and several of my students complain about not being able to sleep / lack of sleep. So I hope this will help them. It’s aimed as my adult colleague but these word docs can be very easily modified and given to students…
