Lower School Science (Y7-9)

Science Key Stage 3


A thematic approach is used to deliver science to students in Years 7, 8 and 9. Pupils gain skills and understanding of key concepts and process in science through the teaching of the topics. Each topic includes regular assessments and peer and self assessment is used throughout in order for the students to monitor their progress throughout the year. Following directions from the new government strategy, each unit will include "Assessing Pupils Progress (APP)" tasks which will be levelled. The APP assessment criteria includes -Thinking Scientifically, Applications and Implications of Science, Communication, Investigative Approaches, Working Critically with Evidence.

Interactive Class and Homework Activities


In order to enhance our brand new schemes of work for Years 7, 8 and 9 we have developed a number of interactive activities to link these schemes with the real world. You can find the activities for each topic by clicking the links below:
