Science Enrichment

Year 7 and 8 (KS3)

The Science course at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the Trilogy and Separate Science courses in Key Stage 4. Over 2 years students study 12 different topics covering aspects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Topics focus on real life applications of Science and the benefit of having a firm understanding of scientific concepts.

Year 9 and 10 (GCSE)

The Science course at Key Stage 4 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed on the Trilogy and Separate Science courses. Over 2 years students study up to 25 different topics covering aspects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Topics focus on real life applications of Science and the benefit of having a firm understanding of scientific concepts.

Below are the links to the resources, activities and tests you can do to help you revise for each topic.

Your teacher will tell you the relevant sections to revise from the links below, for each Praising Stars assessment.

Additionally you can use the menus and sections from the BBC Bitesize GCSE Science website
