You can choose the level of English, Maths and Science depending on your child's ability.
English: The English component aims to excite and motivate parents and students by making learning relevant and supporting parents. Addressing key concerns raised in recent Ofsted reports as well as meeting the needs of the new KS3 National Curriculum, the Student Books are structured around thematic units that cover a variety of forms as well as including unique immersive production based-units. The English has a core focus on engaging students by connecting their skill development, through the theme of the unit, with Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening skills used in a range of relevant and interesting jobs in the outside world.
Maths: Sequencing, functions and graphs; fractions, decimals and ratio; equations and formulae; geometrical reasoning and constructions; handling data; measures; place value and calculations; factors, indices and graphs; probability; transformations; problem solving; connecting, displaying and analysing data; angles and shapes; more probability; revision.
If your child is particularly good at Maths, you should choose ‘HIGHER Maths’ from the ‘Maths level’ drop-down, otherwise choose ‘CORE Maths’. The CORE Maths option covers the year’s syllabus and still offers extension material as a challenge, whilst the HIGHER Maths option works at the level above.
Science: Inheritance and selection; fit and healthy; plants and photosynthesis; plants for food; forensics; reactions of metals and metal compounds; rock cycle; patterns of reactivity; environmental chemistry; energy and electricity; gravity and space; speeding up; pressure and moments.
