So in this short week, we started the biology section by looking at how plants make food, and how water travels through a plant
This weeks focus was isotopes and trends in the groups and periods of the periodic table.
This week we combined going through the test with revision about solids, liquids and gases and answering practical type questions
This week was all about electron structure and positive and negative ions
This week we concentrated on the atomic number and mass number of an atom, and what that tells us about each atom and isotope
This week we learned about the structure of the nucleus and how to work out how many of each particle is inside a nucleus. We also learned about isotopes.
Atomic numbers and symbols for the first 20 elements and Rutherford's experiment
Structure of the atom and scale of atoms
We learned about the particle nature of matter and how atoms, elements and compounds are a part of everything around us.
