St John's C of E Middle School Academy

Year 7

There are many activities that you can do whilst at home that are linked to science. Some involve using computers, others watching television and some watching nature.

Here is a list of activities you could do:

Use the BBC Bitesize website
Years 7 & 8 access revision, tests and videos from BBC bitesize

Watch a scientific documentary and write a summary of what you’ve seen.
What was it about? How do you feel now you watched it? What can we do to help? Etc.
Documentaries on the BBC iPlayer include: The Blue Planet and The Blue Planet II; Frozen Planet; The Planets, Planet Earth II and Seven Worlds, One Planet.
Parents please check the episodes beforehand in case there are some upsetting scenes

Create a poster for display in the labs or classrooms using the British Science Week 2020 Theme: ‘Our Diverse Planet’
Years 7 & 8 – the activity pack is below – if you have some time, try some of the other activities too. Bring in some evidence (photos, mini projects etc. to show your science teachers)

Do a spot of Bird Watching – and write a report on the wildlife that is in your garden

Extra Challenge: make it into a scientific investigation and create a results table, bar chart and conclusion.
Do some online revision and activities using Kerboodle (Year 7 & 8 only) – Mr Field and Dr Dowler will set these

username: initial surname e.g. mfield
password: initial surname e.g. mfield​​​​​​​

If you login for the first time, please put the same password (initial surname) back in as it is easier to use in school. If students struggle to login, they may need to add a 1 to the end of their surname (mfield1). Any issues, please contact Mr Chadwick on return to school.
