Elf off the Shelf

I have recently retired after forty years of teaching science in an 11-16 comprehensive school. I have been Primary Liaison and PSE Co-ordinator, and KS3 Manager. In our last inspection my science lesson was highly praised and PSE was highlighted as one of the strengths of the school. I also have a degree in software engineering and my resources tend to be highly animated. Visit me on YouTube. www.youtube.com/channel/UCjkDMTqwMietZaJn6iuVASg

Electricity KS3 - 4 Homeworks

Electricity KS3 - 4 Homeworks

Each starts off with easier questions and then becomes more challenging. They are designed to accompany a fourteen - lesson module on current electricity but are equally useful in their own right. I have taken great care to ensure that this module covers everything that is required for current electricity by the National Curriculum at KS3. I have also used the water analogy to explain current, voltage and resistance as suggested in the AQA science syllabus for KS3. You can see this in the lesson on Current, Voltage and Resistance. I have offered this as a free lesson as all of my work is highly animated and this website does not allow previews of animated PowerPoints. I therefore fully appreciate that buying requires a huge leap of faith on the part of the purchaser? At the end of the free lesson I have also put a preview of part of another lesson so you can fully appreciate the level of animation in my work. I hope both you and your pupils like my work. Please remember to leave a review – it’s the only way I know if I’m sharing what is useful.. Why not have a look at my shop? https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/penyrheol1 Please note that at the moment the preview function of the website is malfunctioning. The JPG files will give you a view of how the worksheet looks. When you download you get the Word files for the JPGs as well. Although these don’t look right on the preview they download and print perfectly.

Electricity -Conductors and Insulators KS3 - Animated PowerPoint

This PowerPoint is highly animated. It meets the National Curriculum requirement that pupils are able to draw circuit diagrams and use them to construct actual circuits. The sequence of the lesson is draw, construct, measure/observe, conclude. The PowerPoint will fit in with whatever circuit building kits you have. Pupils are required to construct tables for their results. For each activity whether it is drawing circuits or tables the answers are given on the next mouse click. Drawing circuit diagrams is animated and each circuit builds up in front of them in such a way that it will indicate the connectors and wires they will have to use when building their circuits using their kits. Please have a look at the lesson from this series of lessons that I am offering for free. The lesson will suit all abilities but provides extension material for the more able in the form of questions requiring a deeper analysis and explanation of findings. The PowerPoint ends with a five question, fully animated class quiz with sound, which can be used as a plenary or exit ticket activity, as required. It can provide valuable feedback on learning for the teacher, as the pupils either hold up a white board with their answer on or an A/B/C card. This lesson is easy to teach as both pupils and teacher are guided through the content mouse-click by mouse-click. I use a kit between two or three pupils but equally, they make a lesson where the practical has to be demonstrated by the teacher far more enjoyable. Buy One Get One Free Buy this resource.

Digestion and the Digestive System in Humans KS4 Flip It

Digestion and the Digestive System in Humans KS4 Flip It

This is a 20 minute activity for a revision lesson which encourages pupils to think and write. Getting them to write the question instead of the answer requires even more thought than usual! Pupils initially write their questions individually then work in pairs to try their questions out on each other. They peer assess each other’s answers and then each pupil responds to the assessment they have received by rewriting questions which received a poor assessment and noting down what they have learned about writing well from both their own work and their partners. This is a tried and tested format which I have used often. Pupils find it challenging but enjoyable and profitable. It is suitable for pupils of all abilities. It is an easy lesson to teach as all the instructions are on the sheet for you and the pupil to follow. The resource is editable so you can alter the answers to suit a particular class if necessary. You get two copies of the resource-one in colour and the other which I have produced in grey scale so it prints really well on a black and white printer. Please remember to leave a review.

Cells and Movement Across Cell Membranes Revision/ Topic Exit Ticket KS4

Cells and Movement Across Cell Membranes Revision/ Topic Exit Ticket KS4

Versatile resource. A twenty-question animated slideshow quiz with sound effects on twenty-one slides for use in a revision lesson prior to an end-of-topic test or the GCSE examination. It can also be used as an exit ticket to a topic. This activity is designed to make revision fun and enjoyable for those pupils who, left to their own devices, go into a test or exam not having opened a book! The quiz can be used in two ways. It can be used as part of a teacher-lead class revision session in which each pupil has three cards A, B and C. They select the answer to a question and hold up the appropriate card before the answer to the question is revealed. This also provides instant feedback on pupil progress for the teacher and the opportunity for further explanation. It can also be used by pupils individually in a network room or loaded onto the school website for use as revision at home. Each slide shows the instructions reading time, thinking time, hold up your card and click for answer. Functions are timed but can be over-ridden by a mouse-click. This format was highly praised by inspectors. The quiz is available as a ppsx file so that it runs as a slideshow

KS3 Forces Enquiry/Investigation

KS3 Forces Enquiry/Investigation

The A to Z of an enquiry. This is a fully differentiated and resourced enquiry/investigation into how the surface affects the amount of friction. It is suitable for UK levels 3 to 5 and some elements will start more able pupils thinking about some aspects of level 6 work. It consists of a 27 - slide slideshow and systematically takes the pupils through the stages of planning, developing and reflecting. The whole slideshow contains enough material for 3 to 4, one hour lessons depending on ability. The whole slideshow need not be covered and has been designed so that it is easy to select any sections that are required. It has also been designed so that there are challenging questions for more able pupils but clicking to the next slide provides support for those who need it. Many of the slides are animated. The resource has been designed to be sufficiently versatile so as to be suitable as not only as an introduction to enquiry/investigation at secondary level but also for those pupils starting upon the transition from level 5 to level 6. It is full of tips on how to tackle the various parts of an enquiry which pupils will find beneficial for those enquiries they tackle in the future and for coping with enquiry-type questions in examinations. The lessons are easy to follow, enjoyable and easy to teach. Apparatus needed per group is a newtonmeter and a 1Kg mass. I suggest you have an idea of the 5 surfaces to be used in advance and have a selection of different size newtonmeters available. I use the lab floor, the bench, the carpet in the corridor, a wooden dissection board and a Perspex safety screen. Groups of 3 or 4 are ideal. Content Definitions of independent, dependent and control variable, fair test and reliability. The problem posed is “Does surface affect the amount of friction”. Planning the enquiry with a worksheet to accompany which includes peer assessment and pupil response to assessment. Identification of variables Writing a prediction Writing success criteria Designing a table What is an anomalous result and how to recognise it. Improvements Selection of the correct type of graph How to draw the perfect bar graph (animated) Reliability and bias Reflecting on success criteria and learning strategies. I hope your classes enjoy this and do as well as mine. Please remember to leave a review. Why not have a look at my shop? https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/penyrheol1

Cells and Movement Across Cell Membranes KS4 Flip It

This is a 20 minute activity for a revision lesson which encourages pupils to think and write. Getting them to write the question instead of the answer requires even more thought than usual! Pupils initially write their answers individually then work in pairs to try their questions out on each other. They peers assess each others answers and then each pupil responds to the assessment they have received by rewriting questions with a poor assessment and noting down what they have learned about writing well from both their own work and their partners. This is a tried and tested format which I have used often. Pupils find it challenging but enjoyable and profitable. It is suitable for pupils of all abilities. It is an easy lesson to teach as all the instructions are on the sheet for you and the pupil to follow. The resource is editable so you can alter the answers to suit a particular class if necessary. You get two copies of the resource-one in colour and the other which I have produced in grey scale so it prints really well on a black and white printer.
