The Year 9 Science course covers aspects of all four contextual strands of Science in the New Zealand Curriculum with an over-arching theme of the Nature of Science woven through each topic. This is the first part in a two year journey through our Junior Science programme.
This is the
second half of the two year Junior Science programme. The goal of
this course is to continue investigating aspects of Science in
the New Zealand curriculum and prepare students for study at NCEA
Assessment through this year is again from three common tests and from an end of year examination and is used to place students into one of three Year 11 courses. It is therefore important that consistent work habits are developed and thorough preparation is done before any assessment work.
