Experienced Sci. and Mat. teacher. In this shop you will find resources mainly for KS3 Science, KS4 Biology and KS5 Biology My uploaded lessons are what we would call in our department 'grab and go' (i.e. a starter, main and plenary; all activities have answers.) I am very passionate about developing maths, practical and revision skills with my students; my resources reflect this. These resources have received positive feedback from both students and staff. I hope you find them helpful.

A revision poster on the digestive system and digestion summarising the key-points on; stages of the digestion digestive organs/glands and their functions mechanical and chemical digestion the role of teeth in mechanical digestion the role of enzymes in chemical digestion digestion of carbohydrates, proteins and fats experiment: to see the digestion of starch by amylase My students stick this revision poster/chart into their copy book at the start or end of the chapter content delivery. I use these revision posters to show students the importance of chunk revising. They spend time recalling/memorising the key-points; some students will create their own revision resource to suit their learning style by using this content eg. a mind-map, flash cards and some create their own audio recordings to help.
