This is a simplistic PowerPoint based on the KS3 science (physics) syllabus. There are 26 slides, all animated with transitions, and the capacity/space to add additional information if required. It also includes presenter notes, some questions to get students engaged and example/potential homework opportunities. This PowerPoint is based on the KS3 AQA syllabus and should help to create classroom discussions, getting students thinking (for themselves) and potentially get new and creative ideas. There are some practical activities throughout, and I would encourage you to try them where possible. It’s good to get students active and again thinking. The homework to create a revision sheet is a good idea to ensure all students understand the topic, I have suggested starting with A3 or A4 and then you have the potential to get students to decrease the size to A5 or A6 to really pick out relevant and key information. This PowerPoint should not be used as a lesson plan or the whole lesson. It provides a simplistic route through the required knowledge to get students thinking, answering questions (both mathematical and written) and getting practical experience.
This presentation is a prompt to get students thinking about creativity. What it is, why we should consider it, and getting students thinking about how it fits into their subjects. The presentation is 12 slides long, with quotes, definitions and questions which could be asked to students or just left for them to think about. Some subjects (more academic) have been used as examples to get students thinking about other subjects (their own). This could be useful to year 8/9 where they are choosing their options, to get them thinking about their future opportunities, careers/decisions/goals and more recent their options for subjects. There are quotes from a variety of people and a link to a TED talk from Ken Robinson which in the notes is suggested to watch in the assembly, as a tutor group activity or for students to watch at home and think about. Discussions could follow this presentation and the video. *(please note that the video is to youtube and is only being used to engage students) *
