Chemistry

Chemistry begins in the stars. The stars are the source of the chemical elements, which are the building blocks of matter and the core of our subject.

 

Peter Atkins, 1940 to present

The specification is broken down into key concepts which explore and deepen the theory studied at GCSE.

The course allows for material to be learnt and applied in terms of the real world.  This connection allows students to develop an understanding of how chemical ideas can explain phenomenon both past and present and paves the wave to make the learners confident enough to make predictions about what may lay ahead.

The course is really exicting, allowing students to develop an understanding of the fundamentals and then enhance this through more specialist learning at A2.  It also provides students with opportunities to carry out practical investigations, a skill very much needed if they want to go on to a science based subject at degree level

Key Stage 4

During the first few weeks we run an induction where we develop the students’ scientific skills.

Unit 1 (Begins in Y9)

  • The fundamentals of chemistry
  • Limestone and building materials
  • Chemical reactions
  • Metals and their uses
  • Crude oil and fuels
  • Plant oils and their uses
  • Changes in the Earth and it’s atmosphere

Unit 2

  • Structures and bonding
  • Properties and uses of substances
  • Atomic structure, analysis and quantitative Chemistry
  • Rates of reactions
  • Acid, bases and salts
  • Electrolysis

Unit 3 (For Separate science award – Chemistry)

  • The periodic table
  • Water
  • Calculating energy changes
  • Further analysis and quantitative Chemistry
  • Production of ammonia
  • Alcohols, acids and esters

ISA – Assessed practical examination

This unit is assessed by Controlled Assessment. It is worth 25% of the total marks and consists of a minimum of one practical investigation based on topics in the specification.

Independent Learning termly tasks and deadlines:

Weekly ILT tasks to include research, presentations, examination questions, concept maps, preparation for debates, Sam Learning and practical write-ups.

Key Stage 5

Unit 1: F321 Atoms, Bonds and groups(AS) [30% of the AS; 15% of the A2]

Module 1 Atoms and reactions

Module 2 Electrons, bonding and structure

Module 3 The Periodic Table

 

Unit 2:  F322 Chains, energy and resources(AS) [50% of the AS; 25% of the A2]

Module 1 Basic concepts and hydrocarbons

Module 2 Alcohols, halogenoalkanes and analysis

Module 3 Energy

Module 4 Resources

 

Unit 3F323 Practical skills in Chemistry 1 (AS) [20% of the AS; 10% of the A2]

Qualitative task (10 marks)

Quantitative task (15 marks)

Evaluative task (15 marks)

 

Unit 4F324 Rings, Polymers and Analysis (A2) [15% of the A2]

Module 1: Rings, Acids and Amines

Module 2: Polymers and Synthesis

Module 3: Analysis

 

Unit 5F325 Equilibria, Energetics and Elements (A2) [25% of the A2]

Module 1: Rates, Equilibrium and pH

Module 2: Energy

Module 3: Transition Elements

 

Unit 6F326 Practical skills in Chemistry 2 (A2) [10% of the A2]

Qualitative task

Quantitative task

Evaluative task

 

Independent Learning termly tasks and deadlines:

Weekly ILT tasks to include pre-reading tasks, research, presentations, examination questions, concept maps, essays and revision tasks.

Students must also provide evidence of independent learning via their own notes and extended reading such as articles from journals and scientific magazine/editorials.

Students must also compile an independent study and classwork folder that must be brought to every lesson. With a formal check being carried out weekly to ensure students are keeping up with the work.

Students are required to set up an account with Edmodo and actively participate in discussions and activities that will be set in this online forum.

Extra Curricular

Key Stage 4:

  • Weekly science club
  • Young engineers club
  • STEM enrichment activities
  • Museum visits

Key Stage 5:

Links with Kings College London University and Imperial University would ensure all students will spend at least a day participating in outreach activities. These activities are linked directly to the specification and allow students hand on experience with equipment and techniques they would otherwise only discuss in theory.

STEM ambassadors and mentoring will allow students to have a glimpse of how chemistry is used in the workplace.

An opportunity will also be presented in March where students at both As and A2 will be attending a keynote conference. This will give students access to experts who will provide tips, advice and improve their understanding of real-world chemistry.
