A revision lesson for GCSE Physics on the topic of waves. Learning Outcomes: Describe the different types of wave Calculate the properties of waves Explain how to use a ripple tank to investigate the properties of waves The lesson includes: learning outcomes and keywords a quick starter/settler focusing on some maths skills used physics (this can be edited to be a review of prior learning should you wish) a recap of the difference between the types of waves followed by exam questions with ms for pupils to self or peer assess The formula for wave speed, frequency and wave length with some examples for you to model to the class and then three questions taking from past papers for pupils to practice with. Answers provided. Revision of the ripple tank investigation (for best results demonstrate the actual use of a ripple tank) followed by a 6 mark question with mark scheme relating to the investigation

Topics covered: Energy/ power/efficiency Specific heat capacity required practical Heat transfers and insulation Circuits and related formulae Mains electricity Density and particle theory Structure of the atom Nuclear radiation - hazards and uses
71 slide revision PowerPoint used for revision of the key parts of B1 in preparation for the exams. Covers most of the specification, focusing on areas most likely to come up and on exam technique for the different styles of questions. Topics covered: Cells and magnification Osmosis required practical Mitosis and stem cells Digestive system Respiration and photosynthesis Structure of plant organs Pathogens and vaccination Exam technique covering different question types and styles
A revision PowerPoint to cover the topics for physics paper 2 of the AQA GCSE Combined Science Trilogy examination. Contains 61 slides detailing content for the P2 exam to be used as revision with a class. Suitable to provide to the pupils as revision notes or flash cards. I have used this in the last minute revision sessions to deliver to pupils and review the key points. Topics covered: Forces Motion Momentum Stopping/braking distances EM waves and required practical Uses of EM waves (including HT specific content on properties of EM waves) Magnetism and electomagnets The motor effect
A knowledge organiser covering the rock cycle for KS3 revision/to aid learning in class.
A lesson on photosynthesis used as the first lesson in the AQA 9-1 Bioenergetics SoW (ref 4.4 4.4.1). Includes a presentation with learning outcomes, keyword, notes for introduction to photosynthesis, review questions, activities looking at starch production in leaves and variagated leaves. Was suitable for a full lesson with my classes.
Presentation contains learning outcomes, revision notes on domain theory, 2 literacy revision activities for magnets, another revision activity and plenary questions.

A revision lesson for a GCSE foundation tier/middle ablility pupils on electromagnets and solenoids focusing on the magnetic fields. This lesson could also be used to support a practical investigation on electromagnets with the content on the properties of electromagnets and solenoids but does not include any protocols for the investigation. The lesson includes 3 learning outcomes, keywords, notes on the properties of electromagnets and solenoid with quick review questions and a set of relevant exam questions with mark scheme. There is also an extension task on planning an investigation into the strength of electromagnets in the style of the new 6 mark questions.
