Science Worksheets for Lower Ability 11 to 14 year olds is a new series of resources for Science which is aimed at lower ability pupils in years 7 and 8. It can be used alongside the Spotlight Science scheme or as a stand alone resource for less able pupils. The material is highly flexible and covers all KS3 concepts using simple sentence structures but omitting none of the key Science concepts. The topics have been compiled into separate photocopiable write-in booklets, with each double page spread covering one concept. These can be copied full size as A3 worksheets or reduced to A4 size, as appropriate.
The booklets enable pupils who may have reading and writing difficulties to enjoy science and make real progress by reducing the amount of written work required. Key ideas are clearly printed in the books and illustrated where appropriate with 3-D drawings showing how to use the apparatus. Each book has a summary check-list at the back listing what pupils should understand. The books have not been designed to be easy lessons, for they depend on the teacher talking around each sheet.
The format of the booklets encourages discussion and questions from pupils, to deepen their understanding of the topics. The booklets provide a structured framework, while allowing teachers to include their own ideas. Space for teachers to incorporate their own extension work is included. Teaching colleagues recommend these resources where absenteeism may be a problem because the structure of the work and the key concepts are laid out for the pupils when they return.

This GCSE Biology resource pack aims to provide a route through the teaching of the newly revised Life Processes National Curriculum. It provides ideas for how to teach certain topics on a lesson by lesson basis. Sections are designed to be followed in the order given to aid the pupils' cognitive progress through the course. The pack can easily be used in its entirety or for the occasional lesson. This resource would greatly benefit non-specialists and those teaching a topic for the first time.
Each section begins with a list of outline lesson plans. They include ideas for what could be included in each lesson and a suggested order in which to teach them. In addition to the outline lesson plans are the resources needed to carry out the activities. The practical activities that are suggested contain the relevant health and safety warnings. Guidelines for practical work change all the time and it is advisable to check them prior to completing the practical work.
The teaching ideas have been tried and tested. They provide a wide range of activities to stimulate the pupils' interest and challenge their thinking. There are many ideas that are aimed to stimulate high achievers along with other pupils.find out more
