In here there is… knowledge checklists for each topic in easy to understand language so you can check you haven’t missed anything out; links to YouTube video that explain part you don’t understand; quick-fire questions for each topic with links to a YouTube video working through the answers; lists of equations and units that are essential to learn for physics; lists of ions, equations and formula that are essential to learn for chemistry; key word lists and crosswords.
This will be updated July 2019

For ease of downloading this also comes in a whole GCSE bundle, and as part of a ready made revision pack.
This resource is a small part of a large set including a range of self-assessment of specification statements, revision questions and homework sheets.
Enjoy!!

This was a lesson I was observed and judged to be outstanding.
Before the lesson; the week before I set the home-work of watching and making notes from two videos ( https://youtu.be/7OEL6bupk8A and https://youtu.be/ZTwy8BYOhCs) In the lesson, there were 5 activities
At the start of the lesson students used one colour of post-it notes to indicate on the arrow where they were and at the end another colour to show the progress they had made. (Postits were up for the whole lesson)
Coloured cups were on tables so students could easily indicate who needed help and who didn't
This is the ultimate in differentiation, on one table I had students doing basis and extension work on the same table.
1-using textbooks
2-matching activity found on TES
3-badger task (not included due to copyright)
4-Edouzle calculations (https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/distance-time-and-velocity-time-formative-assessment-for-gcse-inc-edpuzzle-link-and-asnwers-11151926 )
5-Extension from TAP

To help my students I wrote these in the style of the new exams. Two versions one for combined one for separate.
Exam analysis sheet included, with what to improve on and where to find help

This is part of Maths (The Physics Bits) for Science Students, available in my shop. Versions for each exam board available.
This is also available as part of a discount bundle, if you are interested in a number of my resources and want to talk about a custom discount, please get in contact
The easy questions are aimed at foundation tier C grade students; these do not require students to rearrange equations or convert non-standard units. The skills involved are identification of the correct numbers to use, correct use of a calculator and correctly method for answering questions.
The medium questions are aimed at B grade students; they involve rearranging equations as well as all the skills needed for the easy questions, there is some application of logic and the need for correct use of standard form and significant figures.
The hard questions are aimed at A and A* students; they not only require rearranging equations, but a wide variety of non-standard units that need to be converted, combining two or more equations and the application of logic, correct use of standard form and significant figures.
Each section has 5 simple calculations in a table format, and then five questions written in exam style. The language used is different in each question (find/calculate/work out/determine) to prepare student for the range of language they will come across in an exam. Each section of 5 written questions gets gradually harder as they go on, to challenge students and encourage them to move on to the next level.

My year 10's are appalling at writing answers to 6 mark questions, so I've been making them mark some of thier own work. Here are 4, 6 mark questions, the mark scheme and example answers, the idea is that students mark the answers, try to write perfect versions and get a better idea of what is expected of them.

This workbook can be used for revision or in class on a topic by topic basis.
Any suggestion, corrections or custom work please contact me via the TES or on Twitter @viewfromclass
Each section start of easy then move to some very challenging questions, ending in some that involve combining techniques.

Compilation work book (specific versions for exam boards are available) covering...
This is an updated version for the new specification, if you have the old version its probably not worth buying this.
• Periodic Table
• Mass number and atomic number
• The number of protons, neutrons and electrons
• Isotopes
• Ions
• Elements and atoms
• Brackets
• Conservation of mass
• Balancing equations (Easy / Medium / Hard)
• Relative Formula mass
• Moles
• Percentage yield
• Half equations
• Reacting masses

These are resources I use at the start of year 12, to make sure students really know ionic compounds and formula well.
Included are...
1-worksheet of 65 questions with answers on a separate sheet
2-Tarsia puzzle and solution for AfL
3-20 Multiple choice questions for assessment
4-a reference sheet for their notes

Multiple choice questions to reflect the style of exam questions, activities to complete, equations for you to balance, compounds for you to work out the formula for, lots of things that you need to recall and practice long answer exam style questions.
This book is not designed as a text book or revision guide, but as a workbook. There are lots of good (and bad) expensive and free revision guides out there, on my YouTube channel and other great websites. So there is no point in me adding to the masses.
All the teaching, all the new content, is available for free on my YouTube channel, this book is for you to practice and learn. The best way to approach this is to watch the teaching video and make notes, or after class try a section and check the answers.
Any corrections that are needed after the book is published will be listed on my website, www.primrosekitten.com these will be corrected in the next version of the book
Answers are provided for the sections where you need to work out the answers for yourself, not the sections where you are just filling things in from a video or website.
Atoms, Electrons, Structure and Bonding Workbook Topics Covered are...

The GCSE maths is divided in to five different topics, there will be a different number of questions (or parts of questions) depending on the topic. The different number of questions in each section in this book reflects the exam.
15% Number 8 questions
20% Ratio, Proportion and Rate of Change . 10 questions
30% Algebra 15 questions
15% Statistics and Probability 7 questions
20% Geometry and Measure 10 questions

These move from easy to level A*
The exams have a multiple choice question at the start, every week I'm setting my students 20 questions to train them on how to answer multiple choice questions and give me feedback on what they don't understand.
I'm setting this on Edpuzzle, which gives the students immediate feedback on how they have done, and marks the work for me. So my marking load is reduced and the students get timely feedback.
Here is the worksheet with answers, and the link to the Edpuzzle video so you can easily and quickly set this as work for your students.
