I'm a primary school teacher, & ex-scientist, with 12 years experience. My passions are Maths and Science throughout the school. I spend a lot of time developing challenging, real-life, relevant resources to stretch my pupils. I have no interest in making any money from my resources as I enjoy the fact that other teachers might be using them in their schools. If you do use them please leave a wee comment or rate them - all feedback is welcome as it helps me improve my own practice. Thanks

(16)
A set of resources for teaching energy aimed at upper primary or early secondary. Lesson 1 covers: What is Energy? Why is it important? Different forms of Energy Lesson 2 covers: Energy conservation and transformation/transfer of energy There is an activity where pupils match energy examples to the form of energy and a worksheet for pupils to make their own transformation/transfer pathways. You might find the following documents useful to support your understanding of how energy works: https://www.stem.org.uk/elibrary/resource/29858/strengthening-teaching-and-learning-of-energy-secondary-national-strategy http://www.gla.ac.uk/media/media_217157_en.doc http://www.lancsngfl.ac.uk/nationalstrategy/ks3/science/files/TeachingAboutEnergy(RobinMillar).pdf http://www.wiley.com/legacy/Australia/PageProofs/SQ8_AC_VIC/c10_TransferringAndTransformingEnergy_WEB.pdf

Two lessons to teach pupils about meteorites, asteroids and comets and the differences between them. It includes information about the Solar System as well as information about specific meteorites. These lessons were put together when we borrowed a set of meteorites from STFC as part of the Tim Peake Project in 2016 - most of the resource is adaptable for teaching the concept without the set of meteorites.

Science on the Web V1

Science on the Web is an interactive, easy-to-navigate guide to the best current science resources on the internet. I am a huge advocate of doing practical work in primary science wherever possible, but sometimes it isn’t possible and when that’s the case the internet provides some outstanding resources to enhance the delivery of primary science. Science on the Web is split into two main sections; one covers the Experiences and Outcomes for the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence and the other covers the key learning outcomes from the English National Curriculum. There are other pages covering General Science Sites, YouTube Channels, Citizen Science and Topical Science.

Problem Solving Sheets

(0)
A set of 18 problem solving sheets (4 problems on a sheet). Mixture of concepts - I've used with Primary 6 & 7 pupils who need to be pushed and challenged. Also a set of 5 easier sheets. The problems are mostly NOT mine - I've collected them from 100's of different sources of the last 9 years - often I adapt them from Third Level (KS3) or GCSE questions so they are suitable for older primary pupils
