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 October 2014

Yr8 STEM ckub met for the first time on Thursday 16th October in S21 after school. We linked up with the geology department to mark earth science week in the calendar. Pupils found out about different rock types and crystals which Ms Sloane supplied. They then enjoyed making copper sulfate geodes and completed a limestone enquiry using acid to investigate which rock sample had the most calcium carbonate. The club will continue to meet weekly with the next meeting on Tuesday 21 October.
