KS3 Science

Introduction

At Allerton High in Years 7 and 8 students study a range of units, 6 hours per fortnight, that link to careers covering Biology, Chemistry and Physics. In Year 9 students follow a transition model that begins to introduce GCSE Science as separate Biology, Chemistry and Physics topics.

 

Science is essential for understanding the world around us. It helps us to explain how things work, why things happen, and to make predictions about the future. Studying science at key stage three gives students the foundation they need to continue their studies in science and other subjects, and to make informed decisions about the world around them.

 

Here are some specific benefits of studying science at key stage three:

  • Develops critical thinking skills. Science requires students to think logically and to solve problems.
  • Encourages creativity. Science is a creative subject, and students are encouraged to come up with new ideas and solutions.
  • Promotes problem-solving skills. Science teaches students how to identify and solve problems.
  • Builds teamwork skills. Science is often a collaborative subject, and students learn to work together to achieve a common goal.
  • Develops communication skills. Science requires students to communicate their ideas and findings clearly and concisely.

 

Overall, studying science at key stage three is a valuable investment in a student's future. It provides them with the foundation they need to succeed in science and other subjects, and to make informed decisions about the world around them.
