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.
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.
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.
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
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.
