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.

(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

(4)
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.

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.

Revision flashcards for GCSE biology AQA

6 Resources
I have created sets of flashcards which cover most of the AQA Biology content . Print double sided (flip on long edge) so that answers appear on the back On the homeostasis pack and ecology pack I have highlighted the separate science content, so you can take these out of the packs you give to combined students. This feature is not in the other units, but they are less separate science heavy.

Please note the preview shows cards with words carried over from one line to another - they do not look like this, I’m not sure why the preview has squeezed the file! I have created these homeostasis flashcards to help my GCSE biology students to revise for their Biology exams. This set covers homeostasis. Print double sided (flip on long edge) so that the answers are on the back of the card. In this set I have identified which cards are separate science only, so that I don’t give these to my combined science students. It took my eight hours to make these so I hope you find them useful. I have other sets available, but this is the first set that I have highlighted the separate science content. I hope you find it useful - please leave feedback if you have time.
