One component of teaching I really enjoy is making resources. I love the creative aspect of it, as well as trying to think of ways to empower student independence and autonomy - as well as make our lives as teachers more straightforward. I am keen to hear what you think of my resources; I like to know what works and if there is anything constructive you think can make these resources better. Now, put the kettle on and take a moment to breathe before your next class :-)

Atoms, Elements, Compounds and Mixtures

(1)
Updated with new chemistry resources: elements and compounds worksheets, formulae activities, etc, etc. Numeracy task (“all matters”) to help students to figure out the composition of gases in the air - independent and student-led (with extension task). Easy to differentiate further. Summary task of “atoms, elements and compounds” with answers. Word cloud for students to annotate, draw diagrams for, summarise their learning… use for spelling tests, make questions using the words, play Taboo, word splat, mind map, etc…
Digestive System: Ingestion, Peristalsis, Digestion, Absorption, Assimilation, Egestion

Digestive System: Ingestion, Peristalsis, Digestion, Absorption, Assimilation, Egestion

(0)
This is designed for GCSE students (iGCSE Edexcel) but can easily be adapted for other specifications and age groups. I simplified it very easily for high ability KS3 students. A very detailed lesson which follows a flow diagram of exam questions to guide students independently to progress through the activities. VERY STUDENT LED. How it works: - Students attempt Q1 then self-assess - If the student achieves full marks, they may move onto the Q2. - If the student does not achieve full marks, then they must work through the related task. Then self-assess. Then re-attempt the exam question. - Student moves through the questions in the same manner... Teacher can play a facilitator role; encourage, as well as answer any questions the students may have.

Fun Thinking Activities

(1)
Three Thinking Activities 1 - Linking Thinking: This can be adapted for any subject, it can use images or text, be a starter, a plenary or as an activity in the middle of a lesson, or at the end of a sequence of learning. The second slide offers prompts to help stimulate discussions. It can be left on the board or could used as handout. It offers students the opportunity to reflect and hyper-analyse their learning, whilst increasing their learning capital. By making these links, students are able to see the relevance and how useful this learning is, and from this, they become more engaged. It gives students an opportunity to organise their thoughts, to stimulate interesting discussions, make links between the knowledge and skills that they have developed in and around different subjects, thus building their capital and valuing the importance of their learning in each subject, and how it links to other areas of the curriculum and life. 2 - Odd One Out: This can be adapted for any subject, it can use images or text, be a starter, a plenary or as an activity in the middle of a lesson. It can be left on the board or could used as handout. It offers students the opportunity to think outside of the box, to disseminate and synthesise their ideas, think critically, justify their choices using evidence... It gives students an opportunity to organise their thoughts and communicate them verbally or build their literacy skills. It is a really flexible, open-ended, open-minded task. It could be delivered with one or two correct answers, or have no definitive answer. 3 - Thinking Outside The Box: This can be adapted for any subject, it can use images or text, be a starter, a plenary or as an activity in the middle of a lesson. It can be left on the board or could used as handout. It offers students the opportunity to think outside of the box, to disseminate and synthesise their ideas, think critically, justify their choices using evidence... It gives students an opportunity to organise their thoughts, to stimulate interesting discussions, make links between the knowledge and skills that they have developed in and around different subjects, thus building their capital and valuing the importance of their learning in each subject, and how it links to other areas of the curriculum and life.
