A really fun introduction to some common elements and their properties. Mr. Sodium has exploded and three other guests have gone missing at the Periodic Manor House. Can your students match chemical properties to clues in this super sleuth extravaganza! Variable group size with variable difficulty. Min group size: 13 Max group size: 30
Dulwich College Junior School Science Scheme A fully comprehensive scheme designed for above national average students. This is in line with the National Curriculum and would also fit in very well with KS3 Science
A full set of lessons to teach sound at KS2. Many of the resources could be used at KS3 level as they are originally designed for high ability classes.
A continuation in the series of year 6 topics. I have designed these for students who are above the average NC level and also have access to a dedicated science lab. A lot of these resources are transferable to KS3. Please check my other resources for a worksheet breakdown along with editable word versions of each task.
Light Lesson 6 Worksheet 1 (Scheme WS11) Powerpoint starter to get them thinking about the uses of a periscope. Making a periscope and drawing in the path the light rays take on a diagram. I have only reworked the activity provided by the science museum and do not take credit for the template or construction instructions.

Light Lesson 1 Worksheet 1 This worksheet focuses on the identification of luminescent objects Please find the full scheme of work for light here: http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/Full-Scheme-of-Work-Light-KS2-KS3-6162648/
A sheet designed to quickly recap the properties of solids, liquids and gases and to remind students how to draw representations of them using the particle model.
I have made these resources for use with above average NC boys in a dedicated science lab. A lot of these resources would also be transferable over to KS3 science. Please find all additional power points and handouts attached Please comment so that I may continue to improve them.
Light lesson 1 Worksheet 3 This worksheet focuses on the classification of objects into transparent, translucent and opaque categories. Please find the full scheme of work for light here: http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/Full-Scheme-of-Work-Light-KS2-KS3-6162648/
A full topic that includes resources for students using Bunsen burners for the first time. It goes on to use Bunsen burners for a variety of investigations and leads onto gases and global warming. These resources could be used with KS2 or KS3
A simple differentiated research task on what makes up air? also covers pollution and the history of the Earth's atmosphere.
Light Lesson 5 Worksheet 2 (Scheme WS10) Thought provoking questions on refraction. Quite challenging for KS2, should be accessible for KS3. Please find the full scheme of work for light here: http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/Full-Scheme-of-Work-Light-KS2-KS3-6162648/
Full investigation into the effect of mass and surface on the friction between two objects.
A comprehensive set of 5 lessons for teaching atoms and elements. A large variety of activities and detailed lesson plans explaining how to use each resource. This scheme has been made for above average students in yr 6 but the material is more than suitable for KS3 science.
A guide that introduces basic scientific skills and explains the process of writing a scientific report. This is fairly universal, I use it with year 6 although it could easily be used with KS3.
Students decide whether or not situations should require lots of friction or no friction and arrange them on a Venn diagram.
This topic covers nutrition, the heart and lungs, healthy diet and exercise and bones and muscles. This course has been designed for above average KS2 students and could also be used effectively with KS3 classes Please comment if you use the resources so that I can keep them updated and amend any mistakes Check my other resources for other KS2/KS3 topics
