Science

Week Eight
W/B 1st June 2020


All resources here are guidance to support students with their remote learning. Teachers will be offering further guidance through Microsoft Teams where students can submit work and ask their teacher teachers questions.


Year 7

You are now entering the final week of studying heating cooling and energy transfers.

Please ensure all assignments have been handed in on Teams so teachers can provide feedback.

Please check Teams for feedback and praise for some excellent work received so far.

There will be a proper multiple choice end of unit test again towards the end of the week which you will have to do on Teams so make sure you learn your stuff!

The early bird catches the worm! If you are happy you have maxed out your knowledge banks on this topic you can always do a bit of sneaky reading to prepare yourself for the next topic on ‘Magnets’…

This links to a series of five lessons on this topic. Although the website is based on GCSE many Year 7 students will benefit greatly from working though this particularly if only to grasp the meanings of the keywords conduction, convection and radiation.

Further Powerpoints and videoclips are assigned on Teams by your teachers.

Year 8
You are now entering the final week of studying speed and motion.
Please ensure all assignments have been handed in on Teams so teachers can provide feedback.

Remember there will be a proper multiple choice end of unit test again towards the end of the week which you will have to do on Teams so make sure you learn your stuff!

PATHE NEWS SCIENCE VE DAY CELEBRATION COMPETITION for Year 8 and 9

As May 8th is 75 years since VE day it would be nice to capture the moment with some celebration of science. Please design either a newspaper report, a script for a news report or a science journal article (a journal is just a scientific magazine) which explains how science helped the Allies win World War 2. If you like it could be in the style of an old ‘PATHE NEWS’ report.

We want the following features to be in your article.

  • Original idea
  • Professional style and presentation (can be hand written or typed)
  • Well researched
  • Interesting

The best three will be displayed in the science corridor and prizes will be awarded plus a front of lunch or break queue pass.

You have until VJ day on August the 15th to email your science teacher if it is word or powerpoint or alternatively you can take a pic and post on Teams but remember to keep the original in case you win.

Possible ideas: Turin breaking the ENIGMA code, invention of radar, D-day weather forecast, impact of penicillin discovery, design of Spitfires and Lancasters, submarine detection by sonar, the contributions of Barnes Wallace and development of nuclear weaponry. Plus many more!

This video is an excellent introduction to how speed can be calculated from a motion graph.

https://youtu.be/o8DSb6D-0fw

Work through the questions on this physics maths video. Make sure you can calculate speed and use the formula triangle.

https://youtu.be/q9ezMbDpIHI

This applied science video shows how the speed of sound can be measured in different materials.

Relax to this fun video clip comparing the fastest things ever invented! Must watch.


Year 9

You are now entering the final week of studying waves.

Please ensure all assignments have been handed in on Teams so teachers can provide feedback.

Remember there will be a proper multiple choice end of unit test again towards the end of the week which you will have to do on Teams so make sure you learn your stuff!

The early bird catches the worm! If you are happy you have maxed out your knowledge banks on this topic you can always do a bit of sneaky reading to prepare yourself for the next topic on ‘Forces and Energy Changes’…

The two clips above provide an excellent mathematical description of wave properties and is exactly what you need to know.

https://youtu.be/OY0lXHPo_nM

This clip takes you through the GCSE required practical on waves.
Watch it once then watch it again and list the things the teacher does to take the measurements of the waves.


Year 10
The emphasis now is on the Unit Curing and Treating Diseases.

It is essential that assignments have been handed in on Teams so teachers can provide feedback. Please check the work set and the due date as it all relates to your GCSE’s.

You have spent a lot of time looking at vaccinations and immunity and how these programs work at a molecular and an intergovernmental level. You have produced some very good work and your teachers will be starting to move into new parts of the unit looking at drug development and stem cell treatments.

Developing a medicine from scratch to being prescribed by doctors has always taken about 10 years; as we have seen through the incredible work by the Jenner institute at Oxford University and Imperial College London this is all changing and we all hope new medicines and vaccines can be developed much faster using the latest scientific breakthroughs. You can be part of this by studying how drugs are developed and trialled, you never know where it might lead!

Remember there will be a proper multiple choice end of unit test again towards the end of next week which you will have to do on Teams so make sure you learn your stuff!
