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
