I have been teaching science to a range of abilities for over 14 years. This, coupled with middle and senior leadership experience, has provided me with the expertise to produce concise and engaging lessons. I specialise in Biology at GSCE, but produce resources for all strands of science at KS3 and KS4. I have been focusing on the AQA Grade 9-1 GCSE Trilogy, to create learning and revision resources that match the current specification.

Memory aids for key GCSE science recall

(0)
A collection of catchy (and some cringe-worthy!) mnemonics, acronyms and phrases to help GCSE science students recall some of the basics for biology, chemistry and physics. Accompanied by images to help visual learners. These are a bit of a giggle and can be used to inspire students to make up their own!

AQA Combined Science Trilogy- Biology Specimen Paper 1 Foundation- coaching lesson

(0)
This resource will guide students through the AQA specimen biology paper 1 (foundation tier); it will provide guidance of exam tips/techniques as well as providing model asnwers. This lesson should ideally be used when students have their completed, makred papers in front of them, so they can annotate as the teacher guides them through each key point. Students in my lower sets found this reqlly helpful and asked for more to be made!
