Science at Wrenn Academy
At G.C.S.E. level, you will be following a course called “Double Science”. It is called this because you will achieve two GCSEs from the course. The course we use is called `Salters Science` and it focuses on how Science is applied to real-life situations. We shall study: * how human beings work * what materials are made of and how they react * how we need to care for the earth and its resources The course involves a good deal of practical work, problem-solving and drawing conclusions. We hope you will find it interesting and enjoyable, but you have to be prepared to work hard, think for yourself and co-operate with others in group exercises. The course is split into 21 units and at the end of each there is a unit test. The final assessment is based on: (a) examination (80%) (b) Sc1 Practical Assessment Coursework (20%) At the end of the course you should gain a double award in Science (worth 2 GCSEs), which will help you to decide whether you intend to carry on studying Science or not.
