Aylsham High Chemistry YouTube Channel

The uploaded videos will help if you are away or need some clarification on areas you are stuck on. Make sure you have your workbook to hand because I explain the topics using the questions in the workbooks.

Mr Bridge also has YouTube videos and the link to this channel is: Chemistry with Mr Bridge.
