EDEXCEL BIOLOGY REVISION GUIDE

EDEXCEL BIOLOGY REVISION GUIDE

I was working in a local PRU teaching EDEXCEL science to a group of pupils who were totally NOT interested in the learning process but were keen to get a grade. So I bought them each the revision guide published by Pearson - the green one for foundation as this was the level they were working on. I then created this workbook. They really liked it and enjoyed working through the booklet and filling in all the answers from the guide. The process of simply reading and filling in the answers helped every pupil in that group to get a C grade. I think this booklet will be useful for homework, revision and days when cover is needed for a class. Please let me know what you think of it as I have more and need feedback before I make them available.

EQUINE STUDIES - A LANGUAGE  CROSS CURRICULAR THEME

EQUINE STUDIES - A LANGUAGE CROSS CURRICULAR THEME

I wrote this workbook specifically for a horse-mad group of youngsters in a PRU in Shropshire. They loved it and worked ever so hard through it and were fully engaged in the work little realising that they were doing their hated English all the while! I have also used it in a PRU in Essex and it was really well received by girls of the traveller community. They said that it was work that was helpful for their future! I based the learning objectives on those I found for equine studies at the University of Aberystwyth - somewhat simplified but nevertheless correct. Module objectives: • The module will consider the anatomy of equids, with the emphasis being placed on the horse. • This will involve looking at the different organs and structures, their relative positions and their functions. • comparisons with the anatomy of other herbivores will be made, thereby enhancing the understanding of the anatomy of animals in general. Module Content 1. Terminology used in anatomy 2. Evolution of equids pages 3. Bones, Skeletons and Teeth Pages 4. Joints and Ligaments 5. Muscles 6. Digestive tract 7. Respiratory Tract 8. Urogenital System and Reproduction 9. Nervous system 10. Sense Organs and Common Integument 11. Heart and Circulation

Topics covered: GRAMMAR, SPELLING, HISTORY, CREATIVE WRITING, and VOCABULARY BUILDING.

READING SKILLS: COMPREHENSION AND VOCABULARY SKILLS

This set of30 A5 'cards' can be used as follows: 1.to improve vocabulary and spelling. The pages could be printed as worksheet for the children to fill in or they could be laminated and cut into A5 size cards for use during literacy lessons. 2. As a worksheet they are useful for homework to improve spelling and vocabulary. 3. I have used them with older (Year 4 – 6 ESL) pupils to build their vocabulary in one to one sessions. They are useful because all the key vocabulary has a matching picture so that the pupils can see what the word means.
