YEAR 9 TOPICS

The following is a list of the topics covered in Year 9 Science at Kings’. Pupils will, as in Years 7 and 8, be taught by two teachers: a Double Teacher and a Single Teacher. The subjects continue to be taught as discrete disciplines and, wherever possible, pupils will be taught by a teacher who is a specialist in that subject. The Key Stage 3 course ends after the Autumn Term of Year 9. Following an exam in the January of the academic year,pupils will start Key Stage 4 work and study discrete disciplines at GCSE level. I have attached links to a subtopic where there is further information available on BBC Bitesize for KS3 Science.

B1 - VARIATION
C1 - METALS AND REACTIONS
P1 - FORCES AND THEIR EFFECTS
Heredity and Variation: review of animal and plant cell and fertilisation, transmission of genetic information, continuous and discontinuous variation
Materials: review properties
Types of Forces: review of Year 7 Forces topic, types of forces, units, effects, Hooke’s Law, weight, magnetic force
Oxidation: rusting/corrosion, burning metals - change of mass, ph of metal/non-metal oxides
