A short worksheet to assess my bottom set Year 10’s understanding of Speed, Velocity and Acceleration. Helped to highlight the fact that just because an object is accelerating faster, does not mean it is traveling faster. Questions repeated so 2 can be printed per page. Answers are on the third page.
A resource to go with the collapsing can demonstration. In the format of a storyboard, but it has been differentiated as; - Gap fill or, - Card sort or, - Complete the sentence or, - Draw the picture to match the words or, - Write the story to go wit the pictures
Students investigate how the amount of borax affects the viscosity of silly putty. Can be kept as a simple KS3 investigation, or linked to C1 AQA polymers.
Elements and Electron configuration match up A match up activity for lower ability groups - match the element to its electron configuration. PP Answers provided to display to the class.
We used the May 2019 AQA paper 1 for the Year 11 mocks. Rather than going through the markscheme, I have been trying to encourage my students to think about their answers and learn from their mistakes. I used these sheets as prompts. In some classes, I printed the slides out and set it as marketplace activity. Others worked through the slides individually on Chromebooks, some did it as group work. However, the pictures and texts gave students some stepping stones towards the correct answer.
Revision websites for Atomic Structure, with a review activity to enable pupils to select the most effective online resource for their own learning and independent revision.
I created a workbook for our Year 7's trip to the National Space Centre in June 2016. As teachers, we found the workbook encouraged pupils to read and absorb the exhibits, rather than just pushing buttons. I emailed the resource to the NSC, to request their permission to share the resource on TES (as I had added photos of the NSC and a copy of their map). The NSC kindly adapted the booklet to make it look a little more professional and updated questions on exhibits that have changed. The Space Centre is a fantastic day out, I would thoroughly recommend it. The planetarium is well worth a visit.

Car pile up scenario. Pupils have to calculate the momentum of each vehicle, followed by the change in momentum, to calculate impact force. Finally, they have to use the numbers to conclude which driver would have come out worse off. Answers provided.
This activity uses the PhET circuit builder to help illustrate current and potential difference in series and parallel circuits. It is a basic introduction and does not consider variables such as resistance. However, it is a clear way of demonstrating the rules, if you have unreliable electrical equipment. http://phet.colorado.edu/sims/html/circuit-construction-kit-dc/latest/circuit-construction-kit-dc_en.html
