The best question to ask in physics is, “why?” In our KS3 physics classes, we encourage students to have an inquisitive nature. How much does using your washing machine once cost in power? How energy efficient is your kettle? We teach our students to understand the physics behind what they’re doing and why it is vital in todays world.

Each term builds on the material covered in the last term so content is constantly revisted. We take this approach so none of the material taught is forgotten from one term to the next.

Completing this course will help you/your child:

Who is the course for?

Any children aged 10-14 who have finished their primary level maths (this is needed as there is some maths in this course) and want to start learning about physics and how the world works.  

Any children who aren’t quite ready to embark on a physics iGCSE course and want to build a stronger foundation of physics knowledge.

Learning Path

Energy is one of the most important topics in physics and one of the easiest to learn. In this term we will learn about the different ways energy is produced, the laws that energy must follow, the different types of energy stores in physics and basic energy calculations.

We’ll also do some home experiments to see how efficient household appliances are.

Mathematical work: Solving and rearraning basic equations.

12 lessons.

In the second term we learn about forces and Newton’s famous laws of motion. We learn about the different types of forces, introduce the concept of vectors and learn how Newton’s laws crop up in every day life. 

Mathematical work: Pythagoras’ Theorem

12 lessons

In the third term we introduce radioactivity and the particle nature of matter. We learn about how radioactivity was discovered, what anti-matter is, how the first antiparticle was discovered. Do bananas emit antimatter? How is antimatter useful? How dangerous is radioactivity? Are there different types of it? These are all questions we look into in this part of the course.

Mathematical skills: none that haven’t already been introduced.

KS3 Maths

fun, rewarding and engaging

In our KS3 maths classes, we focus on making maths accessible, fun and relevant to real world problems. We teach our students to understand the mathematics and why they are doing it., rather than just rememering methods. Our aim is that our students truly understand the maths they are doing, we believe this is the best way to learn maths.

ks3 astronomy

turning astronomy into something more than just a hobby

For many children astronomy is just something to read about in a book and too often it is an interest not pursued it's full potential. At Priority Learning we want to inspire young budding astronomers and help guide their learning from popular science books to the academic study of the planets, stars, galaxies and universe.

iGCSE Physics

the best place to learn igcse physics online

At Priority Learning we run our iGCSE physics course over 2 years. Most importantly we have interactive live lessons through bitpaper so the students can ask questions in class and are actively engaged with learning. We do this to ensure we get to know all the students individually and spend time understanding how they learn.
