The Science Department: Home

Welcome to the Science Department website

Welcome to the Science Department. This website is here to provide curriculum information to anybody who is studying sciences. Originally setup to support students who were learning from home during the two lock-downs caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the website has grown over time and is continuing to do so. As I learn new skills in coding, the website will mirror this. I am currently working on a database to allow sudents to check their learning with lots of multiple-choice questions that will help you to identify areas of weakness and better target your revision. Enjoy, I truly hope that this helps.

This week we are thrilled to welcome students who will join us in September. During the transition, every student will have a sample science lesson. In the lesson, we will create a hypothesis, test it in a practical investigation then analyse the data that we collect. After we have seen the evidence, we will be able to review out hypothesis and decide if the evidence supports it.

Now that the GCSE examinations for science have finished, it is time for years 9 and 10 to move into the spotlight and show how much they have learned this year.
Monday 24th June, Year 10 have their Biology exam.
Wednesday 26th June, Year 9 have their single exam that has Biology, Chemistry and Physics within (20 minutes of each).
Thursday 27th June, Year 10 have their Chemistry exam.
Thursday 4th July, Year 10 have their Physics exam.
Follow the links for more details of what is on each exam. Year 9 and Year 10.

This week, all of year 10 are completing the required practical in which you will measure the energy change in a reaction. Begin by completing the assignement on Seneca then revise how you can work out the energy transferred to water byt using its specific heat capacity.

Year 10: This week is all about enusring that you fully understand the process of electrolysis. Read up about: Electrolysis & Electroplating. Where does reduction and oxidation occur? How is this used in industry? Look into solutions - What are the products of the electrolysis of Brine? Finally, look at half equations (these show electrons) for the reactions occuring at the electrodes.
When you have done this, there is a seneca assignement to test your knowledge.

23rd February 2024

Year 10 - Friday: You have now learned the basics of the electrolysis of melts. To begin with, look at this link and make sure that you are familiar with the stages, charges, names/keywords and where reduction and oxidation take place (at which electrodes). When you have finished, there is a 25 to 30 minute task set for you on Seneca. My lesson summary can be found here under "electrolysis of melts".
