I specialise in science resources for KS3 and KS4. Itry to make my resources suitable for non-specialists and teachers new to the subject, by including answers to any questions and full step by step explanations. I love flashcards and try to make a set for each unit I deliver. I am in the process of upgrading these to colour coded (differentiated) sets.

49 revision flashcards AQA physics Energy P1 differentiated GCSE including equations

(0)
This is a set of flashcards created for the Energy unit for AQA Physics. The flashcards are double-sided (flip on long edge), so the answer is on the reverse of each card, and are colour-coded with blue cards being the easiest, green mid-difficulty and red the most challenging. With my lowest ability groups I ask them to learn the blue cards as a minimum. My higher ability groups learn the blue cards first, then the green and red cards. There are also some ‘apply’ cards where students have to use their knowledge of the equations.

Specific Heat Capacity theory (ideal for non specialists) prior to required practical AQA GCSE

(0)
I am a non specialist, and I really struggled with SHC. I needed to plan my own lesson from the text book and break it down into simple steps. This lesson is all of the information on specific heat capacity in the AQA text book, building from first principles. All of the questions asked in the powerpoint have the answers on the next slide. It worked a treat with my high ability year 9s as a theory lesson prior to completing the required practical.

Inside Particles AQA Activate KS3 Year 7 Lesson 5.1.8. of Matter Unit suitable for non-specialists

(0)
This is the ‘Inside Particles’ lesson in the AQA Activate, Matter unit This is designed to be easily followed / delivered by non-specialists as the answers are all included. You will need Molymods available for this activity - but if you have non available you could improvise with plasticine balls and cocktail sticks. There is a literacy support sheet included for SEN students and students with weak handwriting. I have attached the periodic table I used in the lesson, but this is not my own and as such is not included in the sale. It is the generic GCSE periodic table included in most textbooks. You can of course use whichever version your school uses.
Osmosis lesson AQA GCSE Biology Cell biology

Osmosis lesson AQA GCSE Biology Cell biology

(14)
Used as an introduction to osmosis for a high ability year 9 group - but can be tweaked for lower ability and revision. Used as a freestanding lesson before attempting the AQA required practical on osmosis. Lesson contains a 10 minute video by the wonderful 'Amoeba Sisters' but I've made my own question sheet for the students to answer as the video is playing (answers on the Power point). You will want to change the starter to suit your own group. If you don't need a complete lesson there's a little worksheet included where students have to show which direction the water would move (net movement) for six different concentrations. Please rate this resource if you have found it useful - if not, comments on how to improve it are very welcome.

I have created a series of science skills lessons for my KS3 students. I have created remote learning versions of all the lessons that do not involve practicals. Most lessons have a literacy support document to support those students who find it difficult to write for sustained periods. Suitable for specialists and non-specialist How to tackle long answer questions (remote version included) Controls and control variables (remote version included) Following a method (not suitable to set remotely) Critical thinking (remote version included) The scientific method (remote version included) Scientific terminolgy (remote version included)6

This is lesson 4 of the Cells and movement unit in Activate 1. It includes a powerpoint presentation, starting activity, Sheets to label, SEN literacy support and images to stick in books to break up chunks of text. I do plan to make this part of a bundle when I have finished planning the whole unit, where I will include flashcards for revision too (hopefully by the end of November 2018)

Activate 1 Matter: Particle model and separating mixtures Year 7 KS3 chemistry

17 Resources
These are the lessons for the Activate 1 (New book) scheme of work. Each lesson has a powerpoint which guides you through the lesson. Most lessons are suitable for non-specialists as answers to any questions on the powerpoint are included. Starting activities are a mixture of literacy, numeracy and scientific thinking. Most lessons have ‘literacy support sheets’ for SEN students and those who struggle to write quickly. There are differentiated double-sided flashcards to prepare for end of unit tests. Chromatography lesson is not included as I did not create a new lesson for this but re-used a colleague’s lesson.

This is a set of five Powerpoint presentations which covers 10 lessons. It breaks down the assessment criteria into manageable chunks with instructions on which parts to complete in each session. It should help to keep the students on-track, so no-one falls behind. The presentations should be printed off and given to the students (or emailed to them) so they can use them to guide their own study.
AQA GCSE Biology Homeostasis introduction

AQA GCSE Biology Homeostasis introduction

(0)
No text books are needed for this session. This is a gentle introduction to homeostasis that I created for my lower ability year 10s. There are a few slides where they need to take notes (print off for some students) There is a 6 minute video (the lovely amoeba sisters) overview of homeostasis. I have included a question sheet (answers in powerpoint) so students are answering questions as they watch. A short exam question at the end to test understanding - then a quick plenary question session to check recall of the main points. The exam question is basic - you may want to replace this for a higher ability class.

This is the Introduction to Homeostasis lesson I made for my year 10s as a gentle introduction to the topic. It includes a link the the Amoeba Sisters video on the topic, but I’ve included a sheet of questions students should try to answer while the video is on so they don’t switch off.

This is a Powerpoint that covers all of chapter B1 of the AQA Biology text book in one revision session. Can be used for pre paper 1 biology revision or for an end of chapter test for younger students. It’s a whistle-stop tour of the main points from this chapter. Students write down the parts they are unsure of only There is no content in this chapter than is separate science only, so this is suitable for both combined science and separate science.
