Here is the link to the current Road Safety Topic that the S2 students are completing now. 2_5 should be looking over slides 56-80 and making notes. Use your Need to Know sheet to get the important information.
We aim to check out lots of information about Space and the Universe. As it is rather a large topic and contains all we know and lots that we don’t we wont be able to cover it all. This is the content statements that we hope to cover.
As part of your course we expect you to research one unmanned SPACE mission. You can choose any space agency, NASA, ESA, Roscosmos, etc
You need to consider
- When was the mission?
- What was the purpose of the mission?
- How long did the mission last?
- What did the mission conclude?
- Did the mission exceed expectations?
- What information can you share about the mission?
Here are a few items that you can try for revision.
Click on the link below to try the Kahoot! Quiz if you never got on to that in class. Challenge your friends at a certain time.
The document below contains a set of revision questions on Heat for you to try.
The S3 Physics Block covers Beyond the Visible after covering light. Attached is the outcomes that you should cover in your course.
The Electromagnetic Spectrum
The electromagnetic (em) spectrum is a collection of transverse waves that all travel at the same speed in air, the speed of light, 300 000 000 m/s. (equivalent to 7.5 times round the Earth every second)
One of the waves is VISIBLE LIGHT
Others are RADIO & TV, MICROWAVE.
The others are INFRA-RED, ULTRA VIOLET, X-RAYS, GAMMA WAVES.
The only difference between each of these waves is their wavelength or frequency. They all fit the formula
Speed= frequency × wavelength
The order is important and to remember it use the following rhyme!
Randy Radio & TV
Period, T, is the time for one wave to pass a point and is measured in seconds.
Frequency, f is the number of waves being produced or passing a point per second. Frequency is measured in Hertz (Hz)
Just in case you didn’t get all of the revision done in class, here is some Physics and Chemistry to help through unit 1 test
Mighty Microbes, Forces and Action Packed Chemistry.

Forces revision This is the power point presentation
As we now only have 10 periods we will need to curtail some of the fun stuff we used to do in this unit. It is still packed with cars, speed, calculations and a fun way to learn. You can always check out what you’re missing in the road safety section in BGE.
Here is the updated materials
I really must update the route cards for the playmats as they really are dangerous! Must start in the car park!
|At rest||not moving, the object is stationary. It is not the same word as pens and pencils which are stationery!|
|Average Speed||the distance of the whole journey divided by the time for the whole journey.|
|Braking Distance||distance the vehicle will travel as the brakes are applied.|
|Displacement||how far you have travelled in a straight line. We would say “as the crow flies” You must quote a direction when writing down a displacement.|
|Distance||is how far you have travelled. It is another name for length.|
|Dynamics||the part of mechanics dealing with Forces.|
|Instantaneous Speed||the speed at which you are travelling over a very short distance.|
|Kinematics||Kinematics means the part of mechanics dealing with motion, speed, acceleration etc|
|Mechanics||Mechanics is the branch of Physics dealing with motion (how things move)|
|Reaction Time||the time it takes a person to react to a situation and understand the dangers.|
|Scalar||A quantity that is fully described by a value and unit|
|Speed||is the distance travelled in unit time.|
|Stopping Distance||stopping distance= thinking distance + braking distance .|
|Thinking distance||is the distance a vehicle will travel in the time it takes you to react to the situation.|
|Time||Time- is how long your journey took. It is measured in seconds or during our road safety topic hours. We never write sec or secs in Physics to mean seconds|
|Uniform Speed||when your speed isn’t changing, it remains constant.|
|Vector||A quantity that is fully described by a value, unit and direction|
|Velocity||displacement covered during the journey divided by the time taken. You must quote a direction when writing down a velocity|
Are you really stuck on drawing that graph in your homework? Here is a hint!
Over the coming months and years students will be given standardised assessments in P1, P4, P7 and S3. Currently the Literacy and Numeracy tests will be the first ones rolled out, with Science coming later. You can keep up to date by clicking on the link below.
At the end of an S1 Unit of Science answer the following statements as thoroughly and carefully as possible to help your learning and self evaluation, to help you improve on your Science scores. Show your answers to your teacher and at home.
A. In this topic, I mostly enjoyed learning about ____________________ B. The part I found hardest to understand was ________________________ C. When I got stuck, I _________________________________ D. The most helpful class activities for me were (pick as many as you like): 1. Taking notes from the board, 2. Watching clips, 3. Doing experiments, 4. Listening to the teacher explaining, 5. Watching teacher demonstrations, 6. Whiteboard quizzes, 7. Answering questions in my jotter, 8. Going on the website, 9. Other (please state) ______________________________ E. To revise for my test, I ____________________________ F. Now I wish I had also ________________________________ G. I still find ___________________ hard to understand. H. I would like to ask about _______________________________
If there is anything else you would like to add let your teacher know.
