10 Sci

 

Welcome to the Yr 10 Overview page. 

In year 10, the students explore the following main units

UNIT 1 Motion & Electricity

           In this unit, the wonders of forces and motion are explored. The student experience via Flipped Videos and in class hands on active learning, motion concepts such

           as speed, displacement, velocity, acceleration.

          After exploring how to describe the motion of objects and analyse their motion using graphs, the students then explore WHY an object moves. ie Newton’s Laws of motion.

 

To finish off this unit, students then revise and extend electricity concepts in circuits.
