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.


Bronze Crest Awards

Having participated in the Scifest event at St Mary's College in June, Year 9 returned to school in september to be awarded BA Bronze Crest awards for the projects they completed. These awards are part of a well established scheme run by the British Science Association. They focus on fun and transferable science skills involving at least 10 hours work on a single project. Pupils have the opportunity to experience the project process, improving their enquiry, problem solving and communication skills- well done to all involved and i hope this will inspire other Yr9 pupils to get involved this year when the opportunity arises.
