This week our pupils and parents continue to enjoy and engage with our British Science Week projects, making biomes in a bottle, crystals and holograms. Please visit the following Twitter posts to see just some of the excellent examples that have been produced
This week we have had another 2 examples of Excellent Home learning posted on the Alford Science Twitter feed.
Use the following link to find out more about how S1 pupils are performing tasks linked to British Science Week. This starts an interdisciplinary project also involving the Faculties of Business Education and Computing, Humanities, Mathematics and Enterprise and Creativity.
The second link below highlights the work of a S6 pupil who presented their research project to S3 and S6 pupils. The research and presentation form part of their Scottish Baccalaureate qualification.
The Science Faculty thought we would share some excellent home learning that has been produced by many pupils during February 2021. We would like to thank everyone for their continued hard work and some amazing learning. Alford Team Science.
The Science Faculty is striving to keep pupil engagement as high as possible during home learning. To achieve this we are using several platforms alongside Google Classroom, to inform pupils of what they are required to learn and providing a variety of activities to achieve this. We are providing feedback on pupil work, celebrating when successful home learning has happened but also giving any ‘next steps’ required to improve work further. We have also been gathering feedback from pupils and adjusting home learning based on their responses. We have put some examples of this in the video below.
We acknowledge the following resources and platforms uses within the Science Faculty

Today we will share examples of the excellent home learning from some of our new S6 pupils studying Advanced Higher Biology.
Excellent summary notes and mind maps are helping to consolidate the understanding of Laboratory Techniques and the Cellular Production of Proteins.
Last week the new S2 year group were learning about cells. One of the tasks was to make a model of a cell. Here is a selection of some of the excellent home learning, producing cell models and cell cakes. Well done all of S2.
We have made a new video of some of the excellent home learning produced by our BGE Science pupils in the past week. BGE is the Broad General Education curriculum followed by S1 to S3 pupils. This week S1 are completing their topic on Materials and S2 are studying air resistance within the Forces topic. Well done to all our pupils for their continued effort and their excellent home learning.
Today we have made a small video to show some more of the Excellent Home Learning in Science
More can be seen on the Alford Science Twitter feed
So many pupils have been completing excellent home learning in Science, that we thought we would share some of it with you. Our S1s are currently working on Materials, including the properties of substances and elements.
Here you see how a knowledge of the solubility of coloured pigments in Skittles can by used to create beautiful patterns and how a cube can be created to display facts about the element Helium.
More examples of Excellent Home Learning by Science pupils at Alford can be found on the Alford Science Twitter feed @AlfordScience
Scholar are hosting an online revision session for Higher Biology Cell Respiration tomorrow, Thursday 16th January, at 6pm. Details of how to logon to the session will be displayed once you login to your normal Scholar account.
Thursday 16 January @ 6:00 pm
Higher Biology/Higher Human Biology: Cell respiration
If a session has a worksheet available, click its ‘Resources’ icon in the Online Tutor Session Schedule, download the PDF and attempt it before the session.
Join a session via the Online Tutor Session log-in page and enter as a guest.
If you are unable to attend a live session, a recording will be available to view the following day in the ‘Resources’ section of the relevant SCHOLAR course.
Regular updates on Twitter @SCHOLARuk & Facebook SCHOLARprogramme
This is an excellent way for support cell respiration.
