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.

 

Yr8 STEM Club

 

 

Yr8 STEM club continues to meet each Thursday after school in S21. This year Yr8 have completed a host of practicals from making bath bombs, rockets and sparklers to investigating owl pellets using binocular microsopes for the food they have eaten (gross!), chromatography of plant pigments and fire writing. New members are always welcome and it is hoped in the spring and summer term pupils can complete some projects for the bronze science crest awards.
