Year 11 Course Booklet

Earth & Space Science


Core (compulsory) The course introduces the study of motion, forces, work done and kinetic energy, along with electrostatics and electrical circuits. The emphasis is on practical work and developing the skills to tackle the required content in the Physics prep course. Prep The concepts learnt in Core Physics form a platform for this course. The course serves as a foundation, prerequisite for Level 2 Physics but also provides a sound base for understanding the physics concepts that underpin aspects of many other subjects. Studies of motion, forces, energy, waves, electricity and magnetism will be further developed. Prerequisite for: Level 2 Physics.

Prep Earth & Space Science is the study of Earth processes, the solar system and space beyond. It is a practical science that applies concepts from physics, chemistry and biology. It develops an understanding of how Earth and space systems interact, how they affect us, and how we affect them. Earth & Space Science will investigate aspects of geology, plate tectonics, atmospheric and oceanic processes. It will also look at components of the solar system, and other astronomical features. There will be plenty of opportunities for practical investigations and field work. Prerequisite for: an advantage for taking Earth and Space Science at Level 2, but not required.
