I teach a number of low ability classes. I want my pupils to do as well as they can. So here are a number of resources that I have developed to help them do that. From writing frames to entire lessons. I am currently making themed topics to rope in pupils, e.g. Disney themes.

Jurassic Park - Electric Bill

Jurassic Park - Electric Bill

(0)
This is a KS3 lesson, with a Jurassic park theme. Pupils begin by converting units. They then use QR codes (the word document is in the same order as the table the pupils fill out) for different areas of the new Jurassic Park to read the electric meters of each area. They put this in a table and use the energy provider’s rate to calculate the cost for each area. Pupils then create a question each and swap with each other, writing down questions and answers. There is a homework available, which consolidates each lesson of the entire topic; creating a Facebook page for the new Jurassic Park.

Frozen Science - State Changes

This is a Frozen themed lesson. It is for a low ability KS3 class. Pupils listen to Olaf's song from the film and you start a discussion on what Cristoff meant at the end of the song. As the song is on pupils can complete a match exercise. You then discuss the heating up on matter and what happens to Olaf. They can then complete the diagram. Pupils then watch the video and pupils complete the cooling down part of the diagram. There is a demo using a cloth and Malteasers to show how changes in energy changes they way the particles move. Pupils then complete a Olaf poster explaining what they have learned with diagrams. The exit ticket is then examples of each phase change.

This is very similar layout to the QWC writings frames (https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-core-science-b1-c1-p1-qwc-writing-frame-bundle-11163851) This can be used as a stand alone lessons. Pupils are given different animals to research (Camel - easiest; Star-nosed mole - hardest, Desert vs Artic Fox extension comparison). There is a Symbaloo link (https://goo.gl/Cju34F) which has all the websites needed for each animal, organised in groups by colour, so you can give the pupils the QR code and let them research their relevant animal. After the pupils have researched their given animal, they can then be asked to write an essay on how that particular animal is adapted, maybe comparing it to a friend's.

New AQA ELC and Combined: Trilogy

(2)
Have you got low ability pupils that you don't think will be able to cope with the intensity of next year of the AQA Combined Trilogy? Have you considered double entry? These planning resources show how you could teach the ELC content as well as meet the requirements for the Combined Trilogy so you can double enter your lower ability pupils. This way if they do not achieve in the Trilogy they can at least have an entry level certificate. These planning resources show how you would teach the Year 10 (Year 11 to follow) and how the TDAs of the ELC map with the Required Practicals of the Combined Trilogy. Hope this helps anyone who is concerned with their lower ability pupils next year.
