AQA GCSE PHYSICS / TRILOGY Mastery Booklets for the 8 Teaching Topics

AQA GCSE PHYSICS / TRILOGY Mastery Booklets for the 8 Teaching Topics

(34)
I have put together ‘mastery booklets’ that can be used for independent study for pupils to use after a section of the course has been covered. They are designed (with past paper questions and the answers) for the students to complete themselves. This is to help them gain a deeper knowledge without impacting on teacher workload. All the teacher needs to do is record when the students have completed and annotated the booklet. I have split the 8 sections into the topics for the paper 1 and the paper 2 - the 8th booklet is just topics for students taking GCSE Physics. These could be used for cover work and revision before the exams. Hope they’re useful, if they are please leave a positive review. Harret

More About Extinction (& Dinosaurs) Lesson - AQA GCSE (4.6.3) (B15.7)

(0)
This is lesson 7 of a set of 10 lessons that cover 4.6.3 and 4.6.4 of the new GCSE AQA Biology curriculum. It follows the Oxford book chapter 15 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 10 lessons can be bought individually or as a bundle for the lot.
AQA AS Biology Quick Quizzes - Whole Course

AQA AS Biology Quick Quizzes - Whole Course

(1)
This resource contains 29 quick quizzes I have compiled for the AS AQA new Biology course. Each quiz has 10 questions of varying difficulty and then the answers. There is a linked excel sheet to record results and instructions as how to link the PowerPoint to the excel sheet (can be used without linking to the excel sheet as a stand alone resource too). The PowerPoint contains 29 quizzes spanning the whole AS course with questions and answers and an integrated results sheet to record the results from your class and a handy macro will rank them in order depending on their average through the quizzes. From the menu screen you can skip to any quiz and return back to the menu. Great for starters, plenaries and revision throughout the year.

Adaptations in Animals (Predators & Prey) CLF Lesson & Resources - Lesson 6 - KS4 BIOLOGY

(0)
This is lesson 6 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 animals are adapted to survive. The scaffolding is to identify the adaptations, then how those adaptations help it survive a predator or catch a prey. The worksheet builds on the modeling done earlier. There is also a sheet that gives pupils scope for artistic flair by building their own predator or prey and how the adaptations help them. Challenge looks at how the adaptations in the wrong environment don’t help it. These lessons are not board specific and can be used (dependent on ability) from KS3 and KS4. Lesson 6 - Adaptations in Animals (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 7 - Predator Prey Population Graphs 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.

New Grade (9-1) GCSE Tracker

New Grade (9-1) GCSE Tracker

(0)
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.
AQA GCSE Science (Physics Aspect) Required Practical Tracker Bundle
harretharret

AQA GCSE Science (Physics Aspect) Required Practical Tracker Bundle

(1)
I have put together a complete system of resources that will allow staff to easily record and monitor the required practical aspect of the new GCSE science that is replacing the old ISA coursework. The resources include Whole Class Practical Tracker, Pupil Cover Sheets for Each of the Practicals (10 required practical sheets) and an 'On-The-Day' Practical sheets (again one for each of the 10 Physics practicals), for the teacher to use in class during the practical to record the Apparatus and Technique (AT) skills that each pupil has to be competent with in Physics. This bundle covers the 10 required Physics practicals for the Combined Science and Physics GCSE's All of the resources compliment each other, use the key coding for assessment to reduce workload and make things easy. I have mirrored the A'Level AQA Practical Assessment for the AQA GCSE, it just seemed logical so that the systems are similar. I have bundled these resources so that it is more cost efficient. If you wish to see how the bundle works and see some screenshots then the instructions are a free download on my page. Enjoy.

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.
