Key Stage 3
At Key Stage 3 the Science National Curriculum is broadly divided into three sections:
- Life Processes and Living Things – cells, humans and green plants as organisms, variation, classification and inheritance, living things in their environment.
- Materials and Their Properties – classifying materials, changing materials, patterns of behaviour.
- Physical Processes – forces and motion, the Earth and beyond, sound and light, electricity and magnetism, energy resources and energy transfer.
It is important to note that in Years 7, 8 and 9 due to the demands on resources for practical work, the order in which the topics are taught will vary from class
|Year 7||Year 8||Year 9|
|My skills||My movement||My past [Biology]|
|My reactions||My molecules||My past [Chemistry]|
|My town||My identity||My past [Physics]|
|My body||My light||My future in Science|
|My journey through time||My food||My sustainable future|
|My air||My planet||My science adventure|
