Students often struggle with the required practicals as they worry about what they ‘need’ to know for the exam. This resource will help to calm them down and provides lots of questions and information in a managable way. A booklet containing: The methods of GCSE Biology AQA required practicals 1-10. Exam-style/ ‘How Science works’ questions associated with each practical. Opportunities to practice magnification, % change calculations and graph work. A powerpoint which is linked to the booklet and contains: Answers to the booklet of questions. Clear indications as to which practicals are paper 1 and paper 2. Resource could be used as part of a revision lesson (probably 2 lessons worth), or set for students to complete and self-mark if given access to the power-point.

Digestive System - Writing Task (KS3/GCSE)

(0)
Task - describe a journey of a ham and cheese sandwich through the digestive system. There is a ‘Level Ladder’ from grades 4-9 and things to include to achieve each level. This is useful for students so they know what they need to write about to achieve their target grade. Level ladder also helps with marking and determining a grade. I’ve used this for cover lessons, end of topic assessments and classwork that spills over into homework. Students generally get quite interested and like being creative whilst also applying their knowledge.
