Our youngest Seniors investigated how and why a liquid boils in today’s Science lesson – and took another step towards getting ready for their GCSEs.
Together, the classmates carried out an experiment to demonstrate energy transfers during a change of state, while learning more about solids, liquids and gases.
Science teacher Miss Natalie Cannon, said: “Practical activities have huge significance in Chemistry, Physics and Biology. They engage students and help them understand the process of controlled investigation and develop a broad understanding of scientific concepts.”
While final exams are some years away for the Year Seven students, practical assessments are a compulsory component of the GCSE syllabus.
Miss Cannon continued: “We ensure all students experience the application of science directly, through hands-on activities and experimentation.
“Confidence in the management and manipulation of scientific instruments and strong observational skills are key to success.”
