|Year 8 Science|
We follow the QCA scheme of work. Within this, biology, chemistry and physics topics are studied. Pupils also develop their scientific enquiry skills through practical work. This helps prepare them for Key Stage 4 GCSE courses. To allow for practical work, pupils follow a rota and will study 13 topics in total.
Pupils will complete one piece of assessment work each half term. This helps us track their progress.
