Welcome to Animated Science

Dear Readers,

Amazing really that all those years ago I started Animatedscience.co.uk as a small flash based site for my own pupils. Today I was looking at use stats across the world for 2019 and the stats just keep going up and up! 100,000 unique visits to the site from across the world, with  4.4 million hits and 470GB of information shared. This is massive positive as a non-profit concern all resources are provided free of charge and web hosting fees are balanced with ads.

I am so happy to be able to provide the resources for everyone, and in particular some the developing countries around the world.

If you have any trouble with flash files, I can provide some source files to play locally if you need them as in 2020 Dec Flash will not be supported properly anymore.

Thanks to my fans out there

Daniel Powell

Animated Science GCSE 1 to 9 Methods Summary

Animated Science 1-9 GCSE Practical Methods

This booklet of Methods is a simple reference point for the 1-9 Physics GCSE Required Practical methods.

Often questions will be based around these themes and you must learn to interpret the questions on the day as they will try and put them in unfamiliar situations.

This booklet is not designed to teach you everything in the practical’s but to be used to recap what you have already done in class. I have limited most topics to 1 or 2 pages of the bare basics.

You must be able to recall all this booklet and the ideas in it if you want to be able to answer some of the questions in your exams.

They are sure to ask about at least 2 of these topics, and most likely 4 or 5 topics in details so time spent on these topics will stand you in good stead.

Try and use this booklet as a starting point and then read more around the subject and tackle some exam questions to help you out.

I have also included some more help on each of the Key Terms you need to know as well. It can be viewed as a PowerPoint or PDF….

iGCSE Household Electricity

If you want to do a lesson on iGCSE Electricity 2.2 understand how the use of insulation, double insulation, earthing, fuses and circuit breakers protects the device or user in a range of domestic appliances.

Here are some resources to help you. I have attached all the lesson slides and if you work through this, you can then do an iSpring Quiz.

Holst Planets Suite & Nocturnes – Gloucestershire Youth Orchestra 1994

This post is to celebrate a moment in time from 1994 when Gloucester Youth Orchestra played at Cheltenham Town Hall. On this occasion a recording was taken on DAT tape and some copies made for the players to listen to their own music.

Having had this tape cassette in my car for the past 10 years or so I decided to digitise the whole concert so it was preserved for the rest of time on youtube.

I have not altered the recording or cleaned up any noise so please realise this is not a perfect recording but simply a memory to share with any of the other players at GLO at that time, and also for future musicians to be inspired.

I have included an image of the full orchestra compliment which also included some guest players on the day.

It is also interesting to see that many of the orchestra have carried on their musical careers after the orchestra. To name but a few…

Charles Peebles who has gone on to conduct many other orchestras in the past few years.

Matthew Elston who now plays as Principal 2nd violin of the BBC Concert Orchestra and teaches music

Diggory Seacome – musical director – went on to become a Conservative Councillor!
