Happy New Year

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my followers. And best wishes for the new school term.


Do you know your stigma from your anther?

Plant reproduction is often seen as dull and boring compared to animal reproduction but it’s actually incredibly interesting. The lastest video to be uploaded to my YouTube channel shows me dissecting a flower to help you learn about it’s anatomy and how the two processes of pollination and fertilisation occur.

If you’d like to learn more about the life cycle of a plant including seed growth and dispersal, why don’t you click here and work your way through the great animations and activities available. You could also test your knowledge of flower anatomy by trying this quick quiz.

It’s important to remember that pollination is not just carried out by bees, watch this amazing video on YouTube about ‘The Beauty of Pollination’. There is some fantastic footage of insects and birds collecting pollen from anthers.

New revision tests now available

Three more revision tests have now been uploaded to the website, one for IGCSE, one for AS, and one for A2. Download them from SlideShare, complete them, use the textbook to mark them, write out anything you get wrong on the revision tracker, and then repeat the test every couple of days until you are getting close to full marks!

Go to IGCSE revision to find a test for Section C: Plant Physiology. 

Go to AS revision to find a test for F211 Unit 1: Module 2 – Exchange, Animal Transport and Plant Transport.

Go to A2 revision to find a test for F214 Unit 1: Module 2 – Excretion.

As always these tests have been created using the relevant textbooks so the answers should be easy to look up. However, if you’d like the answers for any of the tests available on just send me an email.
