(Subject) Schemes of Learning Year …9
Progression Route: Science
Topic
Unit of Work:
Chemistry
A material world: 9E
We are investigating how the properties of different materials make them suitable
for everyday uses. This includes traditional and modern materials including
composites and plastics. Pupils will also develop their independent enquiry skills as
an integral part of this unit.
Assessment:
End of unit test 9E.
Time/No of Lessons:

Unit of Work:
Properties of metals and non-metals.
Properties of ceramics, polymers and composites.
Plan the most appropriate type of scientific enquiry using appropriate
techniques, apparatus and materials.
Make and record observations and measurements.
Suggest possible improvements to the investigation method.
Sculpture Park: 9F
In this unit we are investigating the reactivity of a range of metals and looking at
how this reactivity affects their uses. This includes very reactive metals such as
potassium and sodium and less reactive metals such as copper and gold. We will be
carrying out a series of practical investigations into reactivity and using our
observations to rank the metals in order of reactivity. We will be looking at how
metals can be extracted from their ores using knowledge of their reactivity.

The use of carbon in obtaining metals from metal oxides
Representing chemical reactions using formulae and using equations
Make and record observations and measurements.
Suggest possible improvements to the investigation method.
Cleaning up: 9G
In this unit we will be investigating the effects of human activity on the atmosphere
of the earth and how this can have a detrimental effect on the environment around
us. We will be looking at the earth’s atmosphere in the past and how it has changed
over time. We will be looking at data about climate change and making predictions
about the future based on this data. We will also be looking at ways in which people
can reduce their impact on the environment.

Unit of Work:
Earth as a source of limited resources and the efficacy of recycling
The carbon cycle
The composition of the atmosphere
The production of carbon dioxide by human activity and the impact on
climate.
Apply mathematical concepts and calculate results
Present observations and data using appropriate methods, including tables
and graphs
Interpret observations and data, including identifying patterns and using
observations, measurements and data to draw conclusions
Chemical reactions: 9H
In this unit we are going to look at how chemical reactions progress and what
happens to the energy in the chemical reactions. We are also going to look at how a
chemical reaction progresses and how its rate of progress can be changed. We are
also going to look at how this knowledge and understanding can be used in industry.
Assessment:
End of unit test 9H.
Time/No of Lessons:

content:
Representing chemical reactions using formulae and using equations
Combustion, thermal decomposition, oxidation and displacement reactions
Defining acids and alkalis in terms of neutralisation reactions
What catalysts do.
Energy changes on changes of state (qualitative)
Exothermic and endothermic chemical reactions (qualitative).
