Week 6 

Year 7 – Separating techniques checkpoint assessment.

Over the last few weeks you have been learning about elements, compounds and mixtures. You have also learnt how to separate different types of mixtures. This week you are going to complete 3 checkpoint tasks so that we can assess the progress you have made.

The key pieces of work we would like for you to send to us are:

  1. The 3 completed worksheets.

Good luck!

Please send your completed work to science@theurswickschool.co.uk

Due: 12/02/21

 

Week 5 blurb

Year 7 – Investigating whales

This week you are going to learn something slightly different in science. A local filmmaker, who lives in Hackney has shared some of his work with us, which we are now sharing with you.

The key pieces of work we would like for you to send to us are:

  1. Facts or information that you learn from the film.
  2. Any questions that you have for Tom, that we will share with him to answer.
  3. At least 1 of the following:
    1. Write a film review of what you have watched.
    2. Write a summary of what you have leant.
    3. Write a pitch for a wildlife film that you would like to make.

Good luck!

Week 4 

Year 7 – Distillation

This week you are going to learn a second separation technique, which is called distillation. The process separates 2 liquids that have different boiling points. We would like for you to watch the video, it is embedded into the PowerPoint, the link is also below if you prefer to access it that way. Once you’ve watched the video, you should access the file that contains some work for you to do around distillation.

The key pieces of work we would like for you to send to us are:

  1. Distillation equipment labels.
  2. Your story of a particle being distilled.
  3. Four answers to incorrect distillation.

Good luck!

Week 3

Year 7 – Filtration

Last week you learnt that mixtures are substances that contain 2 or more different atoms that are not chemically bonded together! Now we are secure in that knowledge we can learn how to separate the components of different types of mixtures.

This week you will be learning about filtration, to do this, open the PowerPoint presentation that will guide you through what we would like for you to do.

The key pieces of work we would like for you to send to us are:

  1. A labelled diagram of the equipment.
  2. Your attempt at completing the sentence.
  3. Your design for a new water filtration product.
  4. Your mini-assessment answers.
  5. Your important keywords.

Good luck!

Week 2

This week you are going to learn about mixtures, you will then check that you can tell the difference between elements, compounds and mixtures. To begin with, open the PowerPoint and read through each slide, this will introduce you to the topic. The second task is a puzzle for you to solve where letters have been replaced by symbols, you need to convert these back to complete the sentence. The final 3 tasks are to check how much you can remember.

Good luck!

Week 1

You will now be moving onto a new chemistry topic in science: ‘Compounds, Mixtures and Separation Techniques’.

For this topic, you will need a Periodic Table which can be found in your planner, or you can use the one that we have uploaded onto the website. 
You have 4 tasks to complete this week, which have been numbered so that you know what order to complete them in. 
 
You can either print off the sheets, or write on a separate piece of paper. When completed, please take pictures of your answers and email it to us at science@theurswickschool.co.uk.
 
Have fun!
