Welcome to all students. I have created this site for you. It is primarily a revision resource for the courses that I teach so virtually everything on here you need to know. There are some ‘extras’ to extend your knowledge further than the syllabus but they will be clearly labelled.
IB Biology – After a lot of work, the IB Biology content has been updated to the new syllabus (first exams May 2016). Topics 6, 11 and some of the options still require updated presentations etc, which I will add as the year progresses. For each topic there is a powerpoint of the IB assessment statements and for every sub-topic there will be a presentation, YouTube clips and tutorials (lessons/podcasts that are particularly good at explaining parts of the syllabus), as well as links to other sites and the odd song.
IGCSE Sciences – Biology – this covers the Biology part of the Coordinated Sciences (Double Award) IGCSE from CIE – not IGCSE Biology. Each topic has a powerpoint of the relevant syllabus statements, revision notes (downloadable in word format) as well as links to other sites, relevant YouTube clips and sometimes a tutorial or even a song.
IGCSE Sciences – Chemistry – this covers the Chemistry part of the Coordinated Sciences (Double Award) IGCSE from CIE – not IGCSE Chemistry. Each topic has a powerpoint of the relevant syllabus statements as well as links to other sites, relevant YouTube clips and sometimes a tutorial or even a song.
IGCSE Sciences – Physics – this covers the Physics part of the Coordinated Sciences (Double Award) IGCSE from CIE – not IGCSE Physics. I don’t teach Physics so there is less here than in the Biology or Chemistry section but each topic has a powerpoint of the relevant syllabus statements as well as relevant YouTube clips. The ‘Physics revision & links’ section has links to some fantastic revision sites.
KS3 Science (year 7, 8 & 9) – the Key Stage 3 (Year 7-9) Science programme is based on the English & Welsh KS3 National Curriculum. The blog covers every topic we teach with a very specific powerpoint and other useful resources (as I find them).
Please let me know what you think – what’s good, what could be better and any other suggestions.
To other teachers – thank you! Most of the resources on this blog I have taken from other sites – very little has been created from scratch by me – so I thank you all. I have tried to acknowledge where resources have come from but please let me know if I have not or if you are unhappy with my use of your resource – I am happy to remove any thing that you feel should not be here. But please do feel free to take anything that I have created.
