Course Content:

The scientific content taught in Year 7 is tailored to the Science 2014 National Curriculum, which will spark an interest in science from the beginning of Year 7, extend Key Stage 2 knowledge and support students throughout KS3 towards GCSE success.

The course is divided into several units, consisting of Chemistry, Biology or Physics topics lasting between two to five weeks. Many of the skills required to study Biology, Chemistry and Physics are common to all three subjects and so at the start of the year students will study an Introduction to Science to help develop these skills. The topics covered throughout the year include:-


Biology:

Inside cells, Gas exchange, Nutrition, Reproduction, Environment.

Chemistry:

Elements, compounds and mixtures, Chemical reactions, States of matter, Polymers, ceramics and composites.

Physics:

Forces, Electricity, Electromagnetism, Properties of matter, Waves.


Within each Year 7 unit, students will focus on developing skills through inspiring and challenging activities to achieve their full potential. The tasks in each topic are varied and could include practical work, research tasks, interpreting information or presentations. There is also an emphasis on working scientifically and the importance of science in society. Students will be assessed formally once a term to check progress and understanding.  Students are encouraged to work responsibly, taking all reasonable care.  They are expected to follow the science safety rules, for example, to follow instructions, work quietly and wear safety goggles.

Course Text Books/Websites: Throughout the course we will use the Exploring Science textbooks 7, 8 and 9. Additionally, websites such as BBC bitesize and the Royal Society of Chemistry may be used for research projects. Fieldwork is carried out within the school grounds. 

Additional Materials/Equipment required: Students should not need any additional textbooks during year 7 although a generic KS3 science revision guide may be helpful.

Home Support Encourage your son/daughter to ask questions and think of possible reasons why things happen.  Visits to Sutton or other Ecology centres and Science Museums, will help your son/daughter to enrich their scientific background.  Watching "scientific" television programmes and YouTube channels, having an up-to-date reference book and membership of a library are also helpful.
