YearHead of Science – Ms J Lloyd

Science work will be set in Google Classrooms (GC) every Wednesday, with the deadline being the following Wednesday. Pupils will always have one week to complete each task. We hope that this means that pupils will not feel rushed to complete our work and take their time to think about and enjoy it.

 

Years 7 and 8:

will be assigned tasks by a teacher for each year group and they are to submit (when required) their work to the teacher setting it.

 

Years 9 and 10:

will be assigned work for each Science by a teacher and they are to submit (when required) their work to the teacher setting it.

Pupils will be set no more than 2 hours of Science work each week.

 

All resources will be provided in the GC. Pupils can easily get in touch with the teacher in each classroom should they need some help. It is important to us that pupils know that we only expect them to try their best when completing our tasks and for parents, we want to provide reassurance that when school is open, we will ensure that we spend some time going through topics covered during this period.

 

Below you will find topics being covered in each year group and the GC code they need to enter their Science classroom.
