Why study this subject?

Biology is the study of life and living organisms.  It looks at the world from a very small sub-microscopic level up to a global scale.  Biology investigates the ways in which organisms function to stay alive and how they interact with each other and the environment around them. 

Biology is a living subject and there are always new discoveries and developments being made especially in the areas of health and the environment.  Even as you read this there are thousands of chemical reactions taking place in your body which are keeping you alive. Why not study Biology and find out a bit more about them?

Year 9 Combined Science sequence of lessons

Half Term 1 - Microscopy

Cells are the building blocks of all biology and so we start with this. Builds on KS3 work and expands on subject knowledge.

 

Half Term 2 - Microscopy

Cells are the building blocks of all biology and so we start with this. Builds on KS3 work and expands on subject knowledge. Develop microscopy skills and look at cell structure to give firm foundations on which to build greater subject knowledge.

 

Half Term 3 - Organisation

Beginning of this unit leads, tissues on directly from the cells work in the first unit.

Unit looks at different processes within the body and breaks them down into sections. Starting with enzymes and Digestion. Students begin to develop better practical skills and so begin with the more simplistic required practicals  and look at analysing methods.

 

Half Term 4 - Organisation

Looking at the heart, circulation, how arteries and veins work and how the body is adapted to its function. 

Once students are familiar with the different systems within the body we can then link lifestyle to the control and functioning of these systems.

 

Half Term 5 - Organisation and Revision

Looking at plants as organisms and building on the knowledge of the organisation of systems within humans and identifying the systems that may be present in plants to allow them to survive.

 

Half Term 6 - GCSE Exam Skills

Identifying command words and key terms in exam questions. Building on students confidence to answer exam questions and looking at how to sue mark schemes and examiners reports to further improve students' exam technique before taking end of year 10 exams.

 

 

 

Year 10 Combined Science sequence of lessons

Half Term 1 - Infection

Students now have an understanding of the systems within the human body and within plants and are able to look in greater detail at how these systems may be affected by infection. Using their knowledge of cells from microscopy unit and interleaving their subject knowledge to look at the structure of viruses and bacteria.

 

Half term 2 - Infection and Bioenergetics

Now students have the detailed subject knowledge of the systems to allow organisms to function they can look in greater depth at the process which support the life of these organisms. 

Interleaving from unit 1 on cells and microscopy and unit 2 on organisation. Now students are looking at Photosynthesis and respiration and metabolism.

 

Half Term 3 - Bioenergetics

Now students have the detailed subject knowledge of the systems to allow organisms to function they can look in greater depth at the process which support the life of these organisms. 

Interleaving from unit 1 on cells and microscopy and unit 2 on organisation. Now students are looking at Photosynthesis and respiration and metabolism.

 

Half Term 4 - Homeostasis

Students are able to develop their understanding and build on their knowledge of the systems within the body and look at more complex systems like the nervous system and the endocrine system.

Students need to use their prior knowledge and to learn how these systems interact to maintain normal body functions.

 

Half Term 5 - Homeostasis

Students are able to develop their understanding and build on their knowledge of the systems within the body and look at more complex systems like the nervous system and the endocrine system.

Students need to use their prior knowledge and to learn how these systems interact to maintain normal body functions.

 

Half Term 6 - Revision and PPE Evaluation

Students revise and pull together all their subject knowledge so far to apply it to exam questions and improve their exam technique looking at command words, markschemes and examiner reports.

 

Year 11 Combined Science sequence of lessons

Half Term 1 - Infection

Students now have an understanding of the systems within the human body and within plants and are able to look in greater detail at how these systems may be affected by infection. Using their knowledge of cells from microscopy unit and interleaving their subject knowledge to look at the structure of viruses and bacteria

Students look at more complex ideas about how disease can be treated using antibiotics and the development of drugs to combat disease.

 

Half Term 2 - Homestasis

Students are able to develop their understanding and build on their knowledge of the systems within the body and look at more complex systems like the nervous system and the endocrine system.

Students need to use their prior knowledge and to learn how these systems interact to maintain normal body functions.

 

Half Term 3 - Inheritance

Students have looked at communicable and no-communicable disease and how all the systems in the body work. Now start to look at what makes us all different, the genetic differences between organisms of the same species and how characteristics and disease can be inherited.

Interleaved with subject knowledge from all prior units.

 

Half Term 4 - Inheritence and Ecology

Introduction to this topic builds on the inheritance topic and introduces genetic engineering, evolution and speciation.

Summer term allows us to carry out the required practical investigations to allow us to develop analytical skills.

 

Half Term 5 - Ecology and Revision

Introduction to this topic builds on the inheritance topic and introduces genetic engineering, evolution and speciation.

Summer term allows us to carry out the required practical investigations to allow us to develop analytical skills.

 

Half Term 6 - Exams

Identifying command words and key terms in exam questions. Building on students confidence to answer exam questions and looking at how to sue mark schemes and examiners reports to further improve students' exam technique before taking end of year 11 exams.

 

 

 

Year 9 Triple Science sequence of lessons
