The Solar System - New (2015) KS3 fully differentiated topic WITH assessment.

The Solar System - New (2015) KS3 fully differentiated topic WITH assessment.

The Solar System and Beyond. This full topic is a merge between the old 7L (Solar System and Beyond) and 9J (Satellites and Space) into the 2-year KS3 new scheme of work. The topic covers 7 one-hour lessons and an assessment lesson. As this is part of the new KS3 scheme of work there are NO LEVELS required or given. The topic covers: - Days and nights - Seasons and years - Phases of the moon - Solar and lunar eclipses - The planets - Comets and asteroids. - Gravity and orbits - Satellites (natural and artificial) - Space exploration (landers, rovers, orbiters etc.) All learning objectives are on the PowerPoints and all activities that are mentioned are fully resourced and ready to go! Some lesson slides have animations on them that the pupils will LOVE and will help them to remember the key information. There are running themes throughout the topic (the NASA boss the pupils work for) to engage pupils with the activities and for them to take pride in their learning. Some of the files are large because they are so complete and well resourced so please be patient. It's worth it! Files included: - 6 PowerPoints (L1, L2, L3, L4 and L5, L6, L7) - Card sort for lesson 1 - Moon phases worksheet for lesson 3 - Moon homework for lesson 3 - Planet fact cards and table for lessons 4 and 5 - An Excel spreadsheet containing the data for the temperatures of the planets - Exploration methods fact sheet for lesson 7 - Assessment on the topic with mark scheme PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO LEAVE A REVIEW! They can be improved for re-upload!

Easter Murder! Science Easter Activity 2016 (No practical required)

Easter Murder! Science Easter Activity 2016 (No practical required)

The Easter bunny has been murdered by another bunny! Possibly a jealous or overworked one. There are 5 clues (a couple with science themes) for the teams to figure out to lead them to the final clue. When they have completed the puzzle, they can begin crossing suspects off the list to find the killer! There really is minimal effort required from the teacher. Set it up, introduce the murder and let them compete. Just tick the team's box when they have finished each clue and advance the slide to give the answer when the time runs out. Includes: PowerPoint presentation leading pupils through the Case brief and clues. Also includes answers. Anagram code for clue 1 Crossword sheet and answers for clue 2. Wordsearch for clue 4 Speed calculation sheet for clue 5. CSI case brief Front cover for the murder file List of suspects and information NB: Clue 3 is found in the presentation so you can edit the names if you like! It is a classification key.

Edexcel Physics Core Practical Revision Workbooks - Combined and Triple Physics2018

Edexcel Physics Core Practical Revision Workbooks - Combined and Triple Physics2018

Core practical workbooks including all of the required practicals for Edexcel combined and separate/triple sciences. The workbook includes exam style questions for each section so they can be RAG rated. They style of question varies for each practical so the students will practice all of the necessary skills. There are links to videos and simulations which I DO NOT take credit for. This helps students revise or catch up if they have been absent. The practicals are: Investigating force, mass and acceleration Investigating waves Investigating refraction Investigating radiation Investigating resistance Investigating density investigating springs

NEW GCSE PHYSICS FOR EDEXCEL 9-1 Topic 5 - Light and the Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS)

NEW GCSE PHYSICS FOR EDEXCEL 9-1 Topic 5 - Light and the Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS)

1 PowerPoint that includes all lessons for both combined and separate science pathways in the new GCSE specification 2016. I have used these resources with a top set triple year 10 group and a bottom set year 9 group with good results so it is well differentiated where possible. If any resources are mentioned but NOT included it is because I did not make them and therefore am not selling them. Check out the free resource part of my page to find it, or contact me and I will send it to you! This includes the tests/assessments. Revision resources are also included.

Platinum 20 - Electrons, protons and neutrons atomic structure game!

Platinum 20 - Electrons, protons and neutrons atomic structure game!

My year 9s and my year 11s love this challenge. The idea behind it is that the pupils will really get to grips with the protons, neutrons and electrons of each element so they can correctly answer questions about ions, bonding and electronic configuration. This is coming in earlier in the new Edexcel specification! I give pupils 3 minutes for this activity. If it cannot be done in that time, they haven't grasped it yet! They do it as a starter or a plenary, and all begin at the same time. It works well as a mini test where they race against each other (or even you) to be the first one to finish with them all correct. They can even mark each others! When they finish one challenge (95% correct or more) they move on to the next one. I use school rewards for when they advance and I have also included a certificate that I have given to the ones who complete all 3. This can obviously be modified to reflect you and your class. Don't forget to leave a review!

Full topic following the specification points for the new 9-1 GCSE in Combined science and Physics for Edexcel. All lessons are in 1 large presentation, clearly showing the progression of the module and linking previous ideas to new ones. There are clear links to forces (Topic 2), radioactivity (topic 6) and Electricity (topic 11). - 8 ish hours for this topic, but revision/test/feedback can be condensed if necessary. Differentiated tasks - There are opportunities to challenge high abilities given on the slides in red boxes with numerous pit-stops or mini plenaries in every lesson. Lessons include: - Conservation of energy - Energy Efficiency - Keeping Warm - Non-renewable sources - Renewable sources - Revision This Resource also includes a homework task. The assessment for this lesson has been given by Pearson, and is therefore not included in this resource.

GCSE and KS3 Chemistry and Biology Revsion - Computer Lesson

GCSE and KS3 Chemistry and Biology Revsion - Computer Lesson

Fully differentiated challenge resource for GCSE and KS3 revision needing minimal input from you! Pupils can choose their challenge to collect a number of stars over the course of the lesson. The reward they get varies on how many stars they collect. They must create a document proving they have done them! I also set a question limit. They can swap a star they have already gained if they want to ask me for help. It is a revision exercise, and they have covered the material previously.
