Year 8 Science

Students are taught in sets in year 8, students are setted based on end of unit tests from year 7, the end of year exam and via teacher recommendation. As per year 7, students are taught aspects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. This is done via a number of units that aim to build on prior knowledge from year 7, using practical work as a basis for much of the learning. They will also explore how Science is used in everyday life through "Working Scientifically".

All students will also sit an end of year exam. These test grade averages together with teacher recommendation and end of year exam results will help to decide what set the students will be allocated to in year 9.

Materials to aid learning will be displayed on Its Learning which your child has access to via PB Gateway.
