Year 8

Courses

Year 8 is a stage of getting ready for base camp towards GCSE. Now the students have understood the secondary school phase, made new friends, know the teachers and expectations. The students also start analysing their interest areas during year 8 as they have to decide and select their optional subjects in year 9 for their GCSE.


Champs Learning helps every student at year 8 in their chosen subjects of studies with Champs and make them generate interest and introspect with their performance.


Session Plan: The session plan for the subjects like English, Maths and Science will be similar to year 7 but each session will go much deeper content and assessment wise. There are 42 sessions for each subject. If one joins for all the three subjects then he will be visiting Champs for 126 teaching sessions in a year.


Books: The session plan is structured with 8 books for each subject and 8 topic tests. Each book is further divided into 4 weeks and every 5th week, we conduct an assessment on that book or topic. All the content including books and tests are designed by faculties at Champs learning. The session plan is made flexible to accommodate extra time for doubt solving and for challenging content for higher set of students.


Assessment: An assessment happens at the end of every book i.e. after every 4 weeks on a particular topic and feedback is discussed with the student with support plan. We also have an assessment at the end of the year once we finish the entire curriculum for year 8


Subjects: We teach English, Maths and Science for Key stage 3. We also have modern languages as per need of the students. We treat Science as combined science for Year 8 with Physics, Chemistry and Biology are given attention individually on rotation. The aims of KS3 Maths, English and Science at Champs Learning is to develop an interest and understanding of natural phenomena and prepare them for studying these subjects at GCSE and A levels..

The curriculum of these subjects have incorporated the structure of all the UK approved boards such as Edexcel, AQA, OCR etc. Each important aspect from a particular board is given an importance in teaching.


Success: Each of our students achieve high grades in their school assessment and shine during their school phase. Many school teachers have given us the feedback that our students have more understanding about concepts and have good content plan with them.
