Nuffield Science Year 8
The Nuffield Science for Key Stage Three course materials for Year Eight were planned as an integrated science course.
Topic A Energy
Topic B Fuels
Topic C Life goes on
Topic D Healthy body
Topic E An electrical world
Topic F Water
Topic G Air around us
Topic H Colourful world
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, guided reading, purposeful writing, discussion and debate.
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.
