Little Scientists

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.

Pokemon Science - Specialised Cells

Pokemon Science - Specialised Cells

(1)
The lesson is for a low ability class with a Pokemon theme throughout. The starter involves designing a cell with a function. The pupils can be as imaginative as they like. You can get them to judge each other's cells. Pupils then get given a poster (to be printed in A3) to complete by circulating the room and collecting information. There is a lower ability poster which tells them where to write all the information and links it to animal and plant Pokemon. There is also a higher ability poster which they decide which Pokemon would have those cells, there is a male and female version of the same Pokemon (this may need explaining if your pupils aren't familiar with Pokemon - the top right is female and the one directly below is male - they look slightly different). Then show pictures of different cells and pupils can use mini white boards to name them - I use this as an opportunity to get verbal confirmation that pupils can give a structure and function of each. Finally there is a choice of two exit tickets, a true and false or a match exercise.

New AQA ELC and Combined: Trilogy

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.

Differentiating QWC Writing Frames Guide

(0)
Firstly, I would like to say thank you for purchasing or considering purchasing a QWC writing frame or bundle. I have found these an amazing resource, which if why I have made so many. But, how could they be differentiated? I know how tempting it can be to use these as a standalone task, and even stretch it out into a lesson. This document gives some ideas on how to differentiated for different classes as well as other activities you could do with the frames.
