Science 

Educake

This is a revision resource where teachers can set quizes to check students understanding and knowledge of different topics.  There are also some revision slides for some topics (mainly GCSE) 

Each student has their own unique username that is given to them by their teacher – all students from year 8-11 have already had this (unless they are new) 

Year 7 and new students will be given it soon – the lists are still being uploaded by Educake and this is taking a little bit of time. 

Collins Connect

This is our online text book platform, where students of all year groups can access the on line text books they are using for their course. 

There are two books for KS3 and 3 books for Biology, Chemistry and Physics at GCSE, there are different GCSE books if you are doing triple Science or Core science (use the Trilogy text books) 

This platform can also be used by teachers to set homework questions on from the textbook and tests from the units in the textbooks. 

Each student can log into Collins Connect by using the school postcode, LU2 7AE, their date of birth, year group and the first letter of their surname – there was a guide of how to do this on the old website.  Once they have logged the first time they set up their own password.  Every year group, apart from year 7, should be able to do this already as they have been shown previously. 

New students should ask their science teachers and year 7 are currently not on the system but are going to be uploaded onto it soon. 

Tassomai

All year 11 students are able to access this revision resource.  It is a quiz based app that sets targets for the students and they have to meet at least 4/7 of these targets a week as the majority of their science homework. 

Teachers are able to monitor usage and all teachers have been asked to chase the students who have still not logged onto it. In past years we have got the groups down to a computer room on a rota for every student to log on but due to Covid this is not feasible this year, so we have had to rely on the students logging on themselves.  Parents are also being updated on their child's usage of Tassomai, as part of the package and a ParentMail has gone out to them to explain this as well as the departments expectation about homework. 

Students log on first with a school code and then set up their own account details with their school email and a password. 

Free Science Lessons

To demonstrate required GCSE practical and revise different parts of the course with their classes.  Each science at GCSE has at least required practical's (Sep Science has 10 per science) that the students are meant to be able to recall, describe and explain.
