This term’s Science topic for year 9s has been Waves. We’ve looked at light waves, the electromagnetic spectrum and sound. We’ve used a mixture of practical work, computer based simulations and written work.

Computer based activities are really useful as experimental work doesn’t always give us the results we’d expect. One thing that’s always true of learners is that work in the classroom can lead to unexpected conversations. When we looked at refraction we discovered that some of Orange group were big fans of a 70s band, but which one?
