In Science, students will continue to learn topics from all three disciplines: Chemistry, Physics, and Biology. However, at School No.1, we prepare our year 8 students to have a sound and thorough understanding in foundational Chemistry. New students who have missed our year 8 Science course, have to undertake additional private lessons to catch up with the class level.
In English, students continue to develop their skills in all areas. The focus for year 8 would be advanced vocabulary, essay structure, and text analysis. This allows them to enhance their written expressions and have a mature understanding of media.
In Mathematics, students learn advanced topics in all areas, particularly in algebra, graphs, and measurement.
Semester 1 of our year 8 curriculum also includes preparation and training for the Selective School Examinations.
All students will be assessed at the end of every topic in every subject.
