Our Pupils will engage in lessons throughout the Autumn term with particular focus on Chemical Sciences.
Lower School Science.
At KS1 and KS2 Pupils follow the appropriate scheme of work from the National Curriculum covering many scientific concepts including:-
Plants, Animals including Humans, Materials Seasonal changes, Habitats, Light, Sound, Forces, Electricity, Earth and Space, Properties, Evolution, Inheritance and Working Scientifically.
Lower Key Stage 3 Pupils follow ‘Active Science’ supported by Kerboodle. This Term will look specifically at Biology.
Upper School Science.
At KS3 Pupils follow the National Curriculum Scheme of Work. We have introduced Entry Level Science at Year 9. This leads to a Science qualification before students embark on the BTEC course.
At KS4 Pupils complete the BTEC level 1-2 First Award in Principles of Applied Science covering modules as follows:-
Module 1 is covered across the 2 year program and is assessed by means of an external examination.
Modules 2, 3 and 4 are assignment based, building an assessed portfolio of learning during the 2 year program.
NEWS: The trees we received from The Woodland Trust have been planted and are now flourishing in our wild area. It is our intention to develop this area further with a poly greenhouse and an outside classroom area.
We are always seeking to develop and broaden our Science curriculum in order to offer pupils an engaging and hands on relationship with Science and the world around us.
