Welcome to Science at Newfield School
This term in Year 7 we have been working on our scientific skills and have just started the cells topic, we have looked at our own cheek cells (animal cells) under the microscope and onion cells (plant cells).
In year 8 we are covering the Health and Lifestyle topic, we have looked at the 7 nutrients our bodies require for a healthy balanced diet and we are currently looking into the digestive system, how our food travels through our body and how all the minerals and nutrients are taken from our food and stored in our body.
Year 9 have just completed the new technology in Biology unit, looking into inherited diseases and the use of biotechnology in industry, as part of the unit we made our own yoghurt using good bacteria. We are now moving onto turning points in Biology, including vaccines, antibiotics and DNA.
Finally, years 10 and 11 have made a start on their BTEC coursework; I have seen some excellent pieces of work so far, the detail everybody is including is brilliant and I very much look forward to that very first assignment being submitted.
All pupils are working extremely hard in lessons and contributing their own ideas using scientific thinking and vocabulary, we have lots more practical experiments planned for the rest of the academic year.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
