Chemistry AQA GCSE whole lesson pdf+pptx presentation C220.127.116.11-3 Collision theory, activation energy and reaction factors
Self-contained lesson featuring: Starter, Titlepage with objectives, Content slides with exercises and answers, Hingepoint question slides, Test-based question slide, and Extensions slide. Teacher notes included in supplementary presentation.
SEN accessible visual format to focus on main information, BLOOM graded exercises from low attainment to higher ability exercises. Vocabulary list (eg for dislexia or asperger) included.
List of 640 words (40 per topic) for Year 7 and Year 8 (8 topics in each year). I used this to ask my students to research and write down their meaning as the unit progressed, and at the end of the unit they would have this included in their notebooks. Word lists are targeted to include the central ideas and scientific vocabulary they will be acquiring in each unit.

7 activiy handout slides each connected to the content of the 7 topics of GCSE physics. Extremely easy, justifiable and hopefully time-consuming activities for emergencies (timeout, students that are completely lost, etc).
Ever wanted to do a play but not done it because you teach Science? No problem! Here is a script I have used for a theatre play fully justified in a Science context! With minimal resources, short duration (about 20 minutes) and for a class set (around 25 people, plus minus a few if you tweak the script a little). Each character says only a few sentences avoiding complex language, there are 5 dialogue sequences (acts). Ideal for year 6 or 7 students, it can help with laboratory safety awareness both for actors and for spectators, and has a some annotations on how to improvise the scenario and attrezzo in a normal classroom. Since it can be fitted (preparation and tidying up included) into one single lesson, I went round the school making the play for other class groups and it was a great success! Also great fun!
Black and white Hinge-Point question answering flashcards, intended for doublesided printing (2pages per side), different shades/textures for easy teacher recognition, extra symbols on the margin for alternative multiple choice answers. All levels (KS3, KS4, KS5...) all subjects (english, maths, science, arts, history, ...), useful for NQT new teachers, useful for quick printing.
