Welcome to Junior Science

Welcome to the Junior Science department.

KS3 Science is taught together as Integrated Science in Years 8 & 9 with a time allocation of 3 double periods per week. . In Yr10 the Science is taught  as separate biology, chemistry and physics lessons with subject specialist teachers, to prepare students for the GCSE courses they start in Yr11. Each separate Science subject is allocated 1 double period per week.

The purpose of this site is to keep you up to date with the many activities ongoing within the department, both in and outside the classroom, meeting the requirements of the KS3 curriculum. The Yr8-10 good student awards in Science will also be published here every month to celebrate the achievement of pupils displaying hardwork and commitment in science.

Pupils can retrieve missed worksheets/homework sheets from the junior science section on the school VLE site and access extra revision worksheets. Please keep checking back to this micro site as it is developed to see the updates.

 

Spring Term

Hannah Hunter and Ellen Barr, both in 9D have participated in  'Environmental Youth Speak' in February. This event was organised by Derry City Council and encourages environmental awareness giving both girls the opportunity to research and debate environmental issues. They put across their well researched arguements and delivered speeches on  'The True Cost of Waste'. Thanks must go to Miss Elliott for her role in helping prepare them in the delivery of their first public speaking event!
