Curriculum for Excellence

In S1 Science, a course has been written within the faculty which covers the experiences and outcomes of the Curriculum for Excellence. This involves a huge change in the way that Science is taught in S1 at Larbert High School, in the active learning strategy that will be in place as well as the structure of the course.

Google Classroom

Google Classroom is used extensively by all of your Science teachers, to give a detailed two way communication process between the staff and the pupils.

The Stream Section involves information on homework, assessments and other matters of importance that the pupils need to know about. It can also be used for pupils having difficulty with any homework assignment which could be helped by contributions from teachers or other pupils.

The About Section is used to house materials to aid the pupils learning. This will house materials throughout the year and will be continually added to.

Kahoot Quizzes

At the end of each of the six topics covered over the two blocks, the pupils will take part in a 20 question Kahoot Quiz. These quizzes are very useful to consolidate the knowledge gained in each topic area and it is a digital learning experience that all of the pupils enjoy.
