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.

KS3 Science/STEM Club

KS3 Science/STEM Club

With a busy schedule sometimes it's hard to enjoy running a STEM Club if you have to think of tasks every week, especially towards the end of the year. Over the summer I created a scheme of work for your STEM Club. It was divided into themes, e.g. Superheroes and Fairy Tales. One and a half terms in, it seems to be working very well, for our KS3 and KS2 Science Clubs. Not all the resources are mine, but I've attached help sheets for some session. Most of the information is in the spread sheet outlining each session I hope you enjoy using this and it makes your life that little bit easier.

Pokemon Science - Cells, Tissues and Organs

Pokemon Science - Cells, Tissues and Organs

(0)
This is part of a Pokemon Cells unit for KS3. The pretense is that Team Rocket are trying to find out about the hierarchy of organisation in Pokemon. It starts with pupils matching words to definitions. Pupils then watch a video (which is hyperlinked to Jessie's speech bubble) about cells, tissues and organs. Pupils then complete a pyramid of hierarchy using the keywords (Team Rocket's Pokemon, Meowth, is Egyptian so the kids may enjoy this). Pupils then use some questions to write a letter to Team Rocket's boss and then peer assess. There is then a short quiz, followed by an exit ticket that requires pupils to extract information from text and complete a flowchart.

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.
