Hi! I'm a secondary science teacher who's specialism is biology but teach all three sciences. I teach KS3 and 4 of all abilities and always teach from powerpoint. Every lesson I post in here I have planned myself and taught to at least one of my classes. Often I find that I am able to use the same powerpoint for various classes and just adapt my teaching and explanations to suit my class! Hopefully my lessons will cut your planning time! Please review them and let me know what you think of them

Science end of year quiz

This is a quiz i have made and used with year 7 through to year 11 and the students love it! Half the rounds are science related (periodic table, baby animals, biology, famous scientists, music, sport, brands and more!) I split the students into groups of 3 and keep a running total of marks from each round to give them a bit of competition. The answers are on the powerpoint in the note section so don’t panic! I find it’s a great and engaging, educational end to the year.
