Virtual learning was a challenge for all concerned but, along with every other subject in the school, science rose to this with a fully scientific approach; hypotheses from our teachers were sought and put forward, preliminary tests were conducted, reflection upon our provision gained/acted upon, accurate results were gained and excellent conclusions drawn. Subsequently lots of exciting online programs/platforms were used by our science teachers resulting in many positive, happy students giving us great feedback. All four sciences worked together to provide relevant and thought-provoking resources to keep the enthusiasm going whilst everyone was away from school.
Happily for our exam groups we had covered almost all of our curriculum before the beginning of the virtual learning meaning we only needed a few weeks to finish off, this was a great relief to both Year 11 & Year 13 science students. Impressively, we had also managed to complete all coursework before the lockdown was implemented in its fullest, with this complete coverage we were subsequently in an excellent position for their exams.
