Technical and methodological statement for Key Stage Two Science sampling 2010

Produced by the Department for Children Schools and Families and the Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency, this 2010 document lays out the size, nature and procedures around the sample of Key Stage Two science tests that was implemented after testing of all students was discontinued in 2009.

End of Level Reviews

These resources from SMILE consist of short questions designed to assess students' progress in mathematics. Each section consists of a statement which describes the mathematics being assessed, an example to help students understand what is required and questions for the students to complete. The answers to the...

Inside STEM Careers: cloning endangered plants

Produced by Science & Plants for Schools (SAPS), these materials look at the work of conservation biotechnologist, Jonathan Kendon. Through investigating the effects of human activity on the environment, students gain a greater understanding of the career opportunities available in ecology and plant biology....

Mass and Dissolving

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, asks students to predict the masses of solutions from given masses of solute and solvent.

Students also need to explain what happens to the solute in solution and to explain the emergent properties of the solution. It is primarily aimed at the 11–14 age...

Iron – a Metal

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, is designed for able students who have been introduced to the properties of metals and to the basic notion of metallic bonding.

Students are provided with a diagram showing part of a slice through the three dimensional structure of iron, along with twenty...

Types of Chemical Reaction

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, provides students with a range of chemical reactions which they have to identify.

The types of chemical reaction which are included are: displacement, neutralisation, oxidation, reduction and thermal decomposition reactions. It is primarily designed for...

An Analogy for the Atom

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, is designed for students who have already studied the topic of atomic structure, intra-atomic forces and ‘the atom is a tiny solar system’ comparison. Students are provided with diagrams showing a simple model of an atom and of the solar system and asked questions...

Spot the Bonding

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, provides a relatively quick way of assessing students’ awareness of different bond types. Topics covered in this material are chemical bonding including: ionic, covalent, metallic, polar, hydrogen, dipole-dipole, van der Waals, solvation, dative, double,...

Chemical Stability

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, asks students to compare the stability of various triads of related species.

There are seven questions in the set, the first four compare an atom with two of its ions (sodium, chlorine, carbon and beryllium) and are suitable for able students aged 14-16 as...

Stability and Reactivity

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, is an assessment task designed to elicit students’ ideas about chemical stability and reactivity.

The activity is intended to act as a starting point for discussing these ideas in the classroom. Students are provided with diagrams representing the electron...
