Physics is an amazing branch of science which allows us to study the world around us and even to explore the Universe! Pupils will carry out a series of experiments looking into electricity, magnetism and light beyond the visible and discover how scientists are applying knowledge of these to examine everything from tiny atoms to the vastness of space.
By observing and researching features of our solar system, I can use simple models to communicate my understanding of size, scale, time and relative motion within it.
- Sciences: Forces, electricity and Waves:
I have collaborated in investigations to compare magnetic, electrostatic and gravitational forces and have explored their practical applications.
- Sciences: Topical Science
Through research and discussion I have an appreciation of the contribution that individuals are making to scientific discovery and invention and the impact this has made on society.
Having explored the substances that make up Earth’s surface, I can compare some of their characteristics and uses.
