Nuffield Science Year 7
The Nuffield Science for Key Stage Three course materials for Year Seven were planned as an integrated science course.
Topic A Being a scientist
Topic B Senses
Topic C Measuring
Topic D Solar System
Topic E Forces
Topic F Elements and compounds
Topic G Atoms and molecules
Topic H Patterns
The activity sheets form the core of the course. They are supported (for teachers and technicians) by the teachers' guide and, for students, by the pupils' book.
Sometimes the pupils' book presents a context from which the activities arise: sometimes it provides applications of science studied in the activities. There are many questions in both the activity sheets and the pupils' book.
The suggested activities are varied. They include practical investigations, teacher demonstrations, designing and making, fieldwork, discussion and debate as well as puzzles.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
