I am a science teacher in Liverpool and have been head of department and senior leadership. I have put resources on here that I know will be beneficial to both individual teachers and middle managers. I'm aware of the time constraints and the resources are to reduce workload as well as inform.

This is lesson 1 of a set of 7 lessons that cover 4.6.2 of the new GCSE AQA Biology curriculum. It follows the Oxford book chapter 14 in its chronology.
Each lesson has an interactive PowerPoint, a pupil worksheet(s) linked to the work in the PowerPoint and a linked past paper question with mark scheme (the Publisher original of the worksheet is also added so you differentiate accordingly should you wish). The PowerPoint has a starter that leads on from the previous lessons learning. The student worksheet incorporates the learning in the lesson. The worksheets can be used to show progress and/or be cut up and stuck in books to avoid unnecessary diagram drawing etc. and use the time for deeper understanding.
The lessons can be bought individually or as a bundle for the lot.

This bundle consists of 7 lessons...
1. Variation
2. Evolution by Natural Selection
3. Selective Breeding
4. Genetic Engineering
5. Cloning
6. Adult Cell Cloning
7. Ethics of Genetic Technologies

Since the declaration that GCSE Science pupils wont be able to use equations sheets in future exams, I have been thinking of a system that will help them learn the equations and help staff in facilitating that learning. I have devised this. It is supposed to be used as a starter / plenary for pupils to go over and over and try to implant the equations over time. I will use it in every lesson, parrot fashion for success!
This is not board specific as they all will need to learn them, and can be used for the current legacy GCSE students too as a revision resource.
This demo only has the questions for SI units questions, but you will get a good idea of what the paid product will be like. The GCSE PHYSICS Energy Equations full can be found in my store. It has questions on SI units, Gravitational Potential Energy, Kinetic Energy, Efficiency, Power and Specific Heat Capacity.
These take some time to make, but I will group the other equations together as I have for the energy equations. I have used the template for my ABCD cards for this endeavour, but you don't need those to utilise these PowerPoints. Be patient, I'm going as fast as I can.
Enjoy.

This is lesson 7 of 7 lessons that can be used in part or whole to teach the biology topic of interdependence in animals and plants.
This lesson explains how to use the graphs of predator and population graphs. Modeling how to read the graph and why populations go up and down. After the modeling there is opportunity for pupils to apply their knowledge to a new graph. Challenge brings in the influence of seasons on populations.
These lessons are not board specific and can be used (dependent on ability) from KS3 and KS4.
Lesson 7 - Predator Prey Population Graphs (THIS LESSON)
THESE ARE ALSO AVAILABLE TO BUY
Lesson 1 - Interdependence & Biodiversity
Lesson 2 - Sampling Plants (Quadrats)
Lesson 3 - Abundance of Animals (sampling techniques)
Lesson 4 - Competition in Animals
Lesson 5 - Competition & Adaptations in Plants
Lesson 6 - Adaptations in Animals
Each lesson has a interactive PowerPoint that has a starter and comprehensive explanations that will allow for questioning and discussion. There is a pupil worksheet (both in Publisher for editing, and PDF forms). The worksheet mirrors what has been taught in the lesson. There is a question (and a mark scheme) that can be used to consolidate the learning in the lesson or as homework.
The lesson is labeled in the CLF (common lesson format) so pupils are aware of what that section is about.

These are the PHYSICS Assessed/Required Practical student cover sheets that describe which AT (assessment techniques) that will be assessed for each practical.
The grading criteria is the one that is used in the official AQA Physics tracker and my own improved tracker that is based on the AQA tracker (you can download it free from my page).
The sheets are generic and in Word format so that you can amend or add your school crest on if needs be.

These are the CHEMISTRY Assessed/Required Practical student cover sheets that describe which AT (assessment techniques) that will be assessed for each practical. (I've included 7a&b and 10a&b - so there are 14 cover sheets in total).
The grading criteria is the one that is used in the official AQA Chemistry tracker and my own improved tracker that is based on the AQA tracker (you can download it free from my page).

This is my new GCSE grade 9-1 tracker. I have designed it so that it can be edited and changed so that it can be used in any subject. The sheet has space for 250 students to be housed.
This sheet is your one stop place to track your GCSE class data. The sheet are 12 custom tests (which you can change the raw score and label) and 3 summative tests - these are collated to give an average and an old grade (A*-G) and the new GCSE grading system (9-1) along side each other AND the level of progress. The sheet will calculate the %, grades (old and new), averages and levels of progress.The tests are grouped into three sections (4 tests in each) so - science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics) or English (Written, Literature, Creative) etc.
There are 3 Monitoring areas that you can record scores that go towards the whole school data - if this data is below the levels of progress then it will flag the possibility of intervention.
Parts of the sheet are protected so that staff can only add their raw data and not accidentally enter where there are formulas that generate supplementary data. The sheet comes with instruction and the password to unlock locked areas of the sheet should you wish.
There are screen shots on my page that are free to look at if you want to see what it can do and does before purchase.

Bespoke resource that was originally written as a science project based curriculum for year 7. It could be used in primary for a project based activity that should take at least 10 hours to complete.
It covers ecology, food chains, fossils, predator prey relationships. classification and adaptations of animals for survival.
Lesson plans, PowerPoints, & worksheets are all included. There are some simple practicals (like making a fossil included).
My pupils loved this project.

It has questions on Units Questions, Resistance (R=V/I), Power (P=E/t), More Power (P=IV), Even More Power (P=I^2 R), and Electrical Energy (E=VQ).
There is another demo and full powerpoint on Energy Equations on my page. I have used the template for my ABCD cards for this endeavour, but you don't need those to utilise these PowerPoints.
Enjoy.
