School Closure Work- Science

Some of our work involves the use of the Student Shared area. To get to this you log on to KEYS and then on the left hand-side there is a tab called ‘student shared area’- click on this (you may need to re-enter your keys login and password) then click on subjects-then on the relevant folder.

Other work involves the use of the folders in KEYS. The grid below aims to make it clear to each year group where their work can be found for science.

If students require any extra support during this period of time they are welcome to email us on our school email addresses shown below:

Year 9

IMPORTANT: ALL YEAR 9s TO START WITH THE CHEMISTRY SECTION

Log into keys

On the left hand side you will see a section called ‘student shared area’-click on this (you may need to re-enter your keys login and password) then click on subjects-then on chemistry-then click on the year 9 folder.

 

After the Chemistry work is complete students are expected to work on Physics

 

 

 

After the Physics work is complete students are expected to work on Biology

 

 

Read the student instructions page in the folder.

This is revision and completion of topic 1 atomic structure and the periodic table. This should take you two weeks to complete so a total of 6 hours.

 

 

 

You will find the resources in the following folder.

subjects->Physics->Work for Home->Year 9->Energy Transfers By Heating

 

You are to read through all of the PowerPoints and answer all of the questions that feature on these PowerPoints in your books.

You are then to complete the worksheets in the worksheets folder which will be found within the Year 9 folder.

 

 

Log on to KEYS and follow the following instructions: Science > Biology > GCSE-AQA > Biology paper 1 > B2 Organisation > B2 Animal and Plant Transport

 

Year 10

If you have any specific questions you can contact any member of the biology team on the emails at the top of this document.

 

Each week you will be expected to complete 2 lessons. For each lesson read through the central PowerPoint, and complete all associated tasks, worksheets and exam-style questions (this can be done on paper/your books and does not need to be printed.

WB 23/03: Complete work for lesson 8 ‘Blood glucose levels’ and lesson 9 ‘diabetes’

Follow lessons and topics in sequence (so B5.2 ‘Homeostasis’ will be your next topic), at the end of each topic allow yourself 1 lesson for revision. There is a revision folder in the main biology section with plenty of resources for you to use.

Start by reading the student instructions.

There are guidelines for how long each task should take-the work in the folder should take you 3 weeks to complete if you do 2-3 hours per week.

Remember there is a copy of the GCSE textbook for you to use in the folder also.

 

 

Physics

Instructions are on the student shared area in subjects->Physics->Work for Home->Year 10

Work set is on Seneca and assignments will be set with dates for completion. PowerPoints are also available in this folder for resources to help with the assignments set.

Year 11

Biology

Log on to KEYS and follow the following instructions: Science > Biology > GCSE-AQA > Biology paper 2 > B7 Ecology > B7.2 Pollution and food

 

If you have any specific questions you can contact any member of the biology team on the emails at the top of this document.

 

Until we are clear on the government’s decision regarding awarding qualifications, it is important that we continue to complete work and maintain a high standard of subject knowledge. For those of you who intend to study a science at A level this is particularly essential.

Check that you have completed all content for topic B7.2 (trilogy pupils do not need to do L7-8). If there are any lessons you have not covered read through the central PowerPoint, and complete all associated tasks, worksheets and exam-style questions (this can be done on paper/your books and does not need to be printed.

If you have finished all content, you need to focus on revision (Science > Biology > GCSE-AQA > Revision). Work through revision in sequence from topic 1-topic 7, there are revision PowerPoints, summary mats and knowledge organisers that are all available for you to use. Aim to spend an equal amount of time practising past papers as you do using the KEYs resources, past papers are available here: https://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/science/gcse/biology-8461/assessment-resources?f.Resource+type%7C6=Question+papers&sort=date&num_ranks=20 you should always mark your exam answers to identify gaps in your knowledge.

Each week you will be expected to complete 2 lessons for Mr Killworth/Mr Murray and 3 lessons for Mrs Prior. For each lesson read through the central PowerPoint, and complete all associated tasks, worksheets and exam-style questions (this can be done on paper/your books and does not need to be printed.

Mrs Prior’s topics:

  • Module 4: communicable disease
  • Module 5: Excretion

Mr Killworth/Mr Murray’s topics:

  • Module 4: Evolution
  • Module 4: Biodiversity

Special instructions from Mr Killworth/Mr Murray

1. There are the specification points (found in the Biology A level overview folder) you will need to read, study and learn whilst you work from home

2. To accomplish this read the text book and make notes on each subject matter.

3. You should also attempt the following written tasks

a) Exam questions with mark schemes for AS biology and Module 2, 3 and 4 found at:

Courses / ► Science / ► Biology / ► A Level - OCR / ► Biology A level Overview and Exam Material

b) The Statistics in Biology booklet. Read and try the examples of different types of statistics used in biology and try all of the questions

Courses / ► Science / ► Biology / ► A Level - OCR / ► Biology A level Module 1/ I love biology statistics

 

Follow topics in sequence, at the end of each topic allow yourself 1 lesson for revision. There is a revision folder in the main biology section with revision PowerPoints, summary mats and PPQ bundles that are all available for you to use.

The topics listed are as far as we need to get for this academic year. If you have finished all content, you need to focus on general revision (Science > Biology > A Level OCR > Revision). Start by revising relevant PAGS and maths questions (there is a special revision scheme of work in the revision folder that you can use).

Once you have covered relevant PAGS/maths Qs there are revision PowerPoints, summary mats and PPQ bundles that are all available for you to use in the revision folder. Remember to revise sequentially and don’t skip any topics.

Until we are clear on the government’s decision regarding awarding qualifications, it is important that we continue to complete work and maintain a high standard of subject knowledge. For those of you who intend to study science at university this is particularly essential.

I would recommend that you start by auditing your knowledge. Look at the specification in the ‘A level overview and exam material’ folder and identify any lessons that you need to look over again. If there are any lessons you need to look at again, open the appropriate folder, read through the central PowerPoint, and complete all associated tasks, worksheets and exam-style questions (this can be done on paper/your books and does not need to be printed.

If you have finished all content, you need to focus on revision (Science > Biology > A Level OCR > Revision). Start by revising PAGS and maths questions (there is a special revision scheme of work in the revision folder that you can use).

Once you have covered PAGS/maths Qs there are revision PowerPoints, summary mats and PPQ bundles that are all available for you to use in the revision folder. Remember to revise sequentially and don’t skip any topics. Aim to spend an equal amount of time practising past papers as you do using the KEYs resources, past papers are available here: https://ocr.org.uk/qualifications/as-and-a-level/biology-a-h020-h420-from-2015/assessment/ you should always mark your exam answers to identify gaps in your knowledge.
