I believe that the pupil who does the work, does the learning, so my lessons are designed to facilitate a pupil enquiry-lead approach. My resources aren't trendy or earth shattering, they are a backbone to build the finesse onto, or, if it's period 7 on a Friday, you've got 300 reports still to write, a dozen UCAS references AND you need to set cover for a colleague who's sneezed twice and is off all week, they will serve well enough at an advanced FOFO level.

UCAS and beyond. Applying to university in the UK and Rest of the world

10 Resources
This will help form tutors and careers advisors prepare your students for applying to university in the UK and beyond. When you remember that unis in Europe are either free or low cost (e.g. Holland) and offer courses in ENGLISH its worth exploring. My entire UCAS and EU university resources. There’s everything there to get your pupils thinking about applying to uni, and to guide them through the process. There is card matching game not at all similar to “Top Donalds” which, due to copyright, I need to point out the difference between an inferior card comparision game and my excellent resource, powerpoints, an editable excell table for viewing where the pupils are in the application cycle. PS, the photo is my son (now at uni) embarking on his first big adventure…

Oxidation and Reduction

Resource that does exactly what it says on the tin. Has questions, activities, some explanatory notes. Fine for homework, as a lesson or for cover when, for example a colleague sneezes twice and calls in "sick " for a week and some genius calls you up asking to double classes "because it's the same really" just when you've got 90 reports to write, 15 UCAS references and you're also having to give up your only non contact period to cover a colleague and you haven't got time for a coffee AND a pee (so it's one our the other), let alone write a resource.

Exemplar of a Physics Lab report using secondary data

(0)
This is a good Pre-IB pupil's lab report that I use as a marking exercise for staff and pupils as preparation for their IB DP work. There are lots of examples out there of pupils' lab reports from primary data- but this one was conducted from secondary source data. A good activity to give to pupils with marking criteria to check they understand the rubric for a lab report.

Basics Redox part 3 Flashcards

Flashcards for matching pairs game. This is a simple resource of matching pairs. Fine for revision- can be used as matching cards or as flashcards/ sequencing. I use this type of activity as part of a standard repertoire for a starter or a plenary for fact-based learning. It may not be trendy- but assimilating facts is pretty-much the cornerstone of chemistry learning, but pupils don't like it. This sort of activity makes it more entertaining, and with bigger classes you can do it as a race. I have small classes sources so I do it as a timed exercise over successive lessons. Fine for KS4 KS5. Written for IB DP
