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.

Ghostbusters Science - Hearing Ranges

Ghostbusters Science - Hearing Ranges

(0)
This is for a low ability KS3 class, with a Ghostbusters theme. Pupils begin by putting in order the stages of hearing (they would have done this in a previous lesson). Pupils then determine their own hearing range using a video. Pupils then watch a video on narwhals and how they use echolocation, answering some questions along the way. Pupils then get introduced to ultrasound and some uses. They are then given differentiated maths questions to go along side this. Finally pupils compare the hearing ranges of different animals.

Ghostbusters Science - Pitch and Volume (Frequency and Amplitude)

(0)
This is aimed at a low ability KS3 class, and has a Ghostbusters theme. Pupils enter the room and begin by doing a wordsearch. The teacher, using a diagram, explains how to read a wave from an oscilloscope, including keywords. A oscilloscope can also be used to demonstrate the different sounds and waves produced. Pupils then do a mini-experiment using a ruler, to investigate pitch and amplitude, to ensure that they understand the meaning of these words. Pupils then use a template the draw wave diagrams. There is then a task where pupils read descriptions of sound and match these to wave diagrams. Finally in teams pupils complete a small quiz. There are two homeworks available, which I let them chose between, both are experiments that they can do at home.
Zombie Science - Antibiotics

Zombie Science - Antibiotics

(0)
This is aimed at a KS3 class, with a Zombie theme. Pupils begin by entering to a Morse Code they have to crack. Pupils then watch a short video on antibiotics and resistance and do a quick AfL multiple choice quiz, this would be a good time to discuss why antibiotics don't work on viral infections. Pupils then complete a Maths task, looking at the reproduction of bacteria, the affect of antibiotics and what happens when bacteria mutate. Pupils are then given a character and are to debate antibiotic resistance. Finally pupils answer an AQA exam question on antibiotic resistance. There is also a homework available about the effectiveness of plants as antibacterials, I've dubbed this "Plants vs. Zombies" for "fun-factor",
