Course Overview

Autumn Term

Transition from Key Stage 2: In order to ensure all students have covered the same content, we run a series of lessons covering Key Stage 2 content followed by a baseline assessment:

  • Health and safety, Science rules, assessment
  • Forces
  • Electromagnets
  • Energy
  • Waves

Spring Term

The following topics will be covered:

  • Matter
  • Reactions
  • Organisms
  • Earth

Summer Term

  • Genes
  • Ecosystem

Assessments take place each half term and are linear (some assessment content will be on previous term’s work).
