I am a Science Teacher with 8+ years experience. After spending 5 years in Secondary Schools across Liverpool and Leeds, I have now settled into the Further Education sector teaching students from 16 to 68 (my oldest student so far). Teaching students from such a wide range of ages and backgrounds has encouraged me to develop resources that are designed to appeal to all learners. I tend to focus very much on developing a visual and kinaesthetic inventory to promote some fun into learning.

AS Level Biology - Exchange Surfaces TEST and MARK SCHEME

(0)
Written specifically for EDEXCEL Biology B but may be applicable to other courses. A mixture of multiple choice, short answers, labeling diagrams, completing diagrams, long answers questions and longer/essay style questions. Topics covered - general diffusion, gas exchange in mammals, gas exchange in insects, gas exchange in fish and gas exchange in plants. All diagrams hand drawn! Comprehensive mark scheme to help effectively mark and grade but also useful for students to self and peer assess. Front cover has space for "strength and targets", great as a plenary activity for students to review their efforts. Please leave your comments, I value your feedback and if you have liked the resource and have any requests for further, similar styled tests, please feel free to contact/comment. Thank you.

Detailed ark scheme included. Strengths and targets on front page good for lesson plenaries, starters or homework :) ALL original work including hand drawn diagrams!
Column chromatography - Chlorophyll separation

Column chromatography - Chlorophyll separation

(1)
Designed for my BTEC level 2 Applied Science students for Unit 19 (NQF). The worksheet has video links, a couple of questions and activities for students around the methodology and reasoning behind column chromatography. The particular focus is on separating chlorophyll in plants. I made this mainly because it is so hard to actually do as a class practical and it just made it easy to understand for my students and a simple write-up supports their assignment work for methods of chromatography. Enjoy :) NB the last question should show some indication of a row of test tubes with extracted samples in the order that they exited the column. This is obviously different to the paper and TLC where they have the colours separated up the paper or membrane.

GCSE Chemistry (C2) - Additional Science REVISION/DISPLAY/HELP cards

(2)
Designed to match the AQA specification for Chemistry (C2) but also highly useable for other examination boards. 44 comprehensive individual help/revision cards to help summarise the key exam topics with examples and top tips to help simplify and make the course easily digestible for students. Bigger and better than my previously uploaded “AQA Science A Unit 5 Revision Flash Cards” which were rated a full 5 stars and downloaded nearly 900 times over the past 18 months! Use for; display boards, end of topic test revision, summer exam revision or in class as HELP CARDS to help aid student differentiation. Please rate and comment, I appreciate any feedback. ALL diagrams have been constructed by myself to comply with copywriting rules, please appreciate that cost reflects the time taken to do each and every one of these!

Practical project log book

(0)
Log book for practical work originally designed for the BTEC Level 2 Applied Science Unit 9 where students need to research, devise, carry out and critically analyse, conclude and evaluate their own project. The log book was designed to be completed in class and as homework to guide students through the criteria within the brief. There are check points for the teacher to sign off throughout the booklet and a student submission form to complete at the end of the booklet before submission. Could be adapted for use on other courses e.g. for practice GCSE ISAs etc.

I have struggled to find resources for this in the past so I have made this one. It starts off with methods for the tests for: alcohols, hydrocarbons and carboxylic acids and works up to take students through results, conclusions, structures and functional groups and to the Distinction level explaining the reactions. Covers 3 pieces of criteria for Unit 5.
