Year 7 (Miss Queen) Foundation Group Science
I have sent over a Key facts sheet and a test yourself sheet. Please could you read through the key facts sheet with your child. This should give them the knowledge they need to complete the work sheet.
Please could you set up the following video link to watch how muscles work. The video is found on the bottom of the third page of skeletal and muscular systems( hopefully the link will take you directly to it).
Year 7 (Miss Queen) Science
Read through the attached PowerPoint on the importance of science.
- Pick a scientist from the list or one that you find (don’t do one that you already have heard about)
- research the scientist, find out about their lives and their discoveries, how have they changed the world?
Create a presentation using PowerPoint, word or on paper and email it back. Due 24th of April by 3.30 pm
Some example of scientists to pick:
Marie Curie, Nikola Tesla, Rachel Carson, Tim Berners- Lee, Nicolaus Copernicus, Rosalind Elsie Franklin, Gregor Johann Mendel, Joan Clarke.
Any questions email me. Miss Q

Use the Atmospheric pressure ILR attachment to answer the questions/ complete the tasks on the attached PowerPoint slide.
You have been given two lessons for this so I expect detail in your answers.
- Use page 9 of the attached PDF (page 59 of the revision guide) to answer the following questions:
- What is upthrust?
- What is upthrust equal to?
- Under what circumstances will an object float?
- When will an object sink?
- How does a submarine use upthrust?
- Explain why a wooden object of density 700kg/m3 floats in water with a density of 1000 kg/m3
Mr Greenwood 9/10A
Make notes on how stretching, squashing and bending transfer energy making sure you are clear on the following key terms; elastic deformation, inelastic deformation and elastic potential energy.
Write down the equation that shows the directly proportional relationship between force and extension
Then draw a simple line graph to show what happens when the limit of proportionality is exceeded and explain this in your own words.
Write out the method from page 6 of the PDF (56 of the revision guide)
Draw a simple diagram showing how the practical would be set up
Write down the equation including units for how to calculate energy in the elastic potential store of an object
- How many forces are required to change the shape of an object?
- A spring is fixed at one end and a force of 1N is applied to the other end, causing it to stretch. The spring extends by 2cm. Calculate the spring constant of the spring.
- Describe how you would calculate the extension of an elastic object using the terms original length and final length.
- State two possible sources of measurement error in the practical.
- A spring with a spring constant of 40N/m extends elastically by 2.5cm. Calculate the amount of energy stored in its elastic potential energy stores.
Tuesday period 4 and Wednesday period 3.
Thursdays double periods 5 and 6.
Friday period 1 and period 6.
Below are the worksheet titles I expect to be complete by the end of the week. This is roughly 2-3 worksheets per chunk (2 lessons) so you should have plenty of time.
- Contact and non-contact forces. Weight, mass and gravity.
- Resultant forces and work done. Forces and elasticity. Investigating springs.
- Distance, displacement, speed and velocity. Acceleration.
