Studied as three separate subects...
...biology, chemistry and physics
Biology is the study of living things and how they work.
Chemistry covers the elements, for example iron, sodium and carbon, which make up our world and what happens when you mix some of them together.
Physics is the study of energy, movement and how things like atoms, behave towards one another.
Some of the work will be in classrooms but you'll spend a lot of time in labs doing experiments to help you discover new ideas, ask questions and find answers, so you understand what's going on in the world around you.
- how these subjects overlap and affect one another, for example the body uses chemicals called enzymes to break down food
- lots of interesting scientific words and apply some of the maths you've learnt to work out what's happening , for example inside organisms, in a chemical reaction and to work out how things move.
