Our Year 9s are immersed in a day packed rich with history. They have enjoyed a walking tour of Whitechapel, learning all about the murders of 1888 and are currently experiencing a day in the life of an Elizabethan soldier!” https://t.co/LyLjJ2MbGN

Science

Year 7

In KS3, students will follow a two year condensed course, consisting of four lessons per week. The course is based on the new KS3 curriculum which was collaboratively created and written by specialist science teachers from across the Harris Federation. Pupils will start their learning focused around safety in the lab and the use of basic practical equipment. They will then explore the three domains in science through exciting topics such as Chemical Reactions, Gaseous Exchange and Space. The course will also place a particular emphasis on practical skills and literacy within lessons and lay a firm foundation for a love of science, preparing them for greater challenges during their second year at Harris Academy Beckenham.

Year 8

In year 8, students will complete their final KS3 year, which will aim to promote a successful transition to GCSE study.  They will embark on challenging and relevant material which prepares them for an increasing technological and scientific world.  The new KS3 curriculum was collaboratively created, incorporating stimulating topics across all three sciences, to develop intellectual, curiosity and investigative skills. Independent learning and literacy within science will be key features of this curriculum.

Year 9, 10 and 11

Years 9, 10 and 11 Curriculum Overview:

In year 9, students will complete a bridging unit to help prepare them for their GCSEs. This will focus on the most difficult aspects of the Key Stage Three course. This will be centred on a forensic science topic where students will get the opportunity to analyse clues left at the scene of the crime and examine evidence and data in order to reveal the murderer.

Students will then begin their studies in GCSE Science with the exam board AQA. These GCSE sciences comprise of three separate specifications that utilise common material.

The specifications emphasise explanations, theories and modelling in science along with the implications of science for society. A strong emphasis is placed on the active involvement of students in the learning process and the specification encourages a wide range of teaching and learning activities, including practical work.

In addition to the scientific content in each module, students will be expected to develop their skills in How Science Works. Science attempts to explain the world in which we live. A scientifically literate person should be equipped to question, and engage in debate on, the evidence used in decision making.

Assessment Procedures:

In each specification there are four units of assessment: three externally set and marked unit examinations (60 minute structured exam paper 25%), and an internally assessed coursework unit or ISA (25%). The exams are held in May and June.

Triple science will be on offer for suitable candidates. These are examined seperately and allow students to gain 3 separate GCSEs.

Future Pathways:

This course will allow progression to GCE AS/A2 in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. This will equip students with the sound background knowledge for courses in higher education such as medicine, engineering, pharmaceuticals, business, environmental sciences, etc.
