Benefits of studying IGCSE Science
The study of Biology, Chemistry or Physics at IGCSE enables the pupils to acquire sufficient understanding and knowledge to become confident citizens in a technological world, to recognise the usefulness as well as limitations of scientific methods and to appreciate its applicability in other disciplines and in everyday life. These courses suitably prepare the pupils for studies beyond the IGCSE level in pure sciences, in applied sciences or in science-dependent vocational courses. The pupils have a chance to develop abilities and skills that are relevant to the study and practice of Science and at the same time are useful in everyday life with attitudes such as concern for accuracy and precision, objectivity, integrity, enquiry, initiative, inventiveness and stimulate interest in, and care, for the environment.
Key Stage 3 Science
At Key Stage 3 the pupils follow the QCA Scheme of work using the Catalyst series. Catalyst is a blended science programme for 11-14 year olds, the textbooks are extremely pupil-friendly and they help to maintain a high level of interest from our pupils. Here at MIGS we use the red pupil books to challenge and extend mainstream pupils and to cater for the higher-ability pupils, helping them to achieve their very best.
Key Stage 3 science offers opportunities for pupils to:
build on their scientific knowledge and understanding from previous experience and
make connections between different areas of science;
use scientific ideas and models to explain phenomena and events;
understand a range of familiar applications of science;
carry out investigations of different types, on their own and in groups, making use of
reference sources and evaluating their work;
communicate what they did and its significance;
learn how scientists work and the importance of experimental evidence in supporting scientific ideas.
