Extension Tasks


As well as regular homework questions, pupils may be asked to complete an extension task on a particular topic. This generally involves pupils carrying out scientific research and then presenting what they have found in a poster or a PowerPoint.


Pupils are given an explanation of what is required to complete the task as well as success criteria to help guide them. Please click the link below to view the list of tasks and success criteria.

Summary Notes and Practice Tests


To help pupils prepare for their tests, we offer a set of summary notes for each subject along with a practice test. Each practice test is out of 15 marks and will help prepare pupils for the type of questions they will be asked in their tests.



If pupils want more help or have questions about their homework, extension tasks or practice tests, they should remember to ask their teacher!
