Difficult to see but this is the moment yesterday afternoon that 8 Abbey and 8 Tudor took it upon themselves to take the knee for Black Lives Matter at the start of their House Football Final. We are very proud of them. https://t.co/vo1BMJEo1J

Develop and maintain a love for chemistry and how the world around them works. To question their world and how they engage in it and to develop resilience in the face of adversity.

Why study this subject?

Chemistry is a practical subject which allows you to observe chemical changes as well as learning some of the higher level skills that can be adapted to be used in a workplace in the 21st century. 

If you are interested in learning about the internal structures of the things around us, how the earth has changed since the big bang and carry out lots of experiments, this is the course for you.

Year 9 Combined Science sequence of lessons

Half Term 1 - Atomic Structure

Basics of chemistry is the structure of the atom and how the periodic table is put together. So we start looking at it.

 

Half Term 2 - Atomic Structure and Bonding and Structure

Once students are comfortable with the structure of the atom they are able to look at the interactions between atoms and how that gives different structures their properties.

 

Half Term 3 - Bonding and Structure

Once students are comfortable with the structure of the atom they are able to look at the interactions between atoms and how that gives different structures their properties.

 

Half Term 4 - Bonding and Structure and Quantitative Chemistry

Students have learnt about bonding and are now able to carry out calculations that relate to how substances bond. This includes more complex ideas like moles.

 

Half Term 5 - Quantitative Chemistry

Students have learnt about bonding and are now able to carry out calculations that relate to how substances bond. This includes more complex ideas like moles.

 

Half Term 6 - Quantitative Chemistry and Revision

Students have learnt about bonding and are now able to carry out calculations that relate to how substances bond. This includes more complex ideas like moles.

 

Year 10 Combined Science sequence of lessons

Half Term 1 - Chemical Changes - Making Salts

Students are able to do calculations and are now able to focus on specific reactions like those that involve the use of acids and metals. What is produced and how to write equations and complete calculations for the reactions.

 

Half Term 2 - Chemical Changes - electrolysis

Students have covered ionic bonding and so are able to investigate how ionic compounds are split apart using electricity and why this is done.

 

Half Term 3 - Energy Changes

Students have an idea about reactions and are now able to look at why reactions release or take in energy and how to calculate how much energy is released or taken in during reactions.

 

Half Term 4 - Rates of Reactions

Students are able to develop their understanding of reactions by looking at how the collisions and particles can affect the rate of a reaction. They must have an understanding of energy to do this.

 

Half Term 5 - Rates of Reaction

Students are able to develop their understanding of reactions by looking at how the collisions and particles can affect the rate of a reaction. They must have an understanding of energy to do this.

 

Half Term 6 - Organic Chemistry

Students know about  energy and bonding and are able to apply this to molecules that are carbon based.

Year 11 Combined Science sequence of lessons

Half Term 1 - Energy Changes Recap and Rates of Reactions

Students have an idea about reactions and are now able to look at why reactions release or take in energy and how to calculate how much energy is released or taken in during reactions.

Students are able to develop their understanding of reactions by looking at how the collisions and particles can affect the rate of a reaction. They must have an understanding of energy to do this.

 

Half Term 2 - Organic Chemistry

Students know about  energy and bonding and are able to apply this to molecules that are carbon based.

 

Half Term 3 - Chemical Analysis

Students need to be able to identify ions and compounds through the use of various practical methods and separating techniques. They require knowledge of reactions to know what products they will be testing.

 

Half Term 4 - Chemistry of the atmosphere and Using Resources

Students identify chemicals of the atmosphere. THey need to know about separating techniques to discuss how we know the composition of our atmosphere and about reactions to identify products that have an impact on our atmosphere.

 

Half Term 5 - Using Resources and Revision

Students pull together all of their chemistry knowledge to investigate how it applies to things they use in everyday life. They need knowledge of all aspects to be able to make links to useful materials.

 

Half Term 6 - Revision

 

Year 9 Triple Science sequence of lessons

Half Term 1 - Atomic Structure

Basics of chemistry is the structure of the atom and how the periodic table is put together. So we start looking at it.

 

Half Term 2 - Atomic Structure and Bonding and Structure

Once students are comfortable with the structure of the atom they are able to look at the interactions between atoms and how that gives different structures their properties.

 

Half Term 3 - Bonding and Structure and Quantitative Chemistry

Students have learnt about bonding and are now able to carry out calculations that relate to how substances bond. This includes more complex ideas like moles and concentration.

 

Half Term 5 - Chemical Changes

Students are able to do calculations and are now able to focus on specific reactions like those of acids. They also are aware of how ionic substances bond and can now understand how to split them up again using electrolysis.

 

Half Term 6 - Chemical Changes and Revision

Students are able to do calculations and are now able to focus on specific reactions like those of acids. They also are aware of how ionic substances bond and can now understand how to split them up again.
