Year 9 is a base camp for year 10 and year 11 which are GCSE years. Many schools start their GCSE preparations in year 9. This brings sudden change in the speed of learning for students. A student has to choose his/her option subject during year 9 and thus clarity of whet they wish to learn further becomes more important.
Champs Learning helps every student at year 9 to have this clarity and interest the area they wish to study further. At year 9, students cover topics in depth to promote mastery and understanding so that they are “GCSE ready”. The expectation is that by the end of year 9 all students will be at good grade points to manage with advanced topics.
Session Plan: The session plan for the subjects like English, Maths and Science will be similar to year 7 and 8 but each session will go much deeper content wise and assessment wise. These sessions will also start covering the subjects from GCSE point of view. 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 9 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: Every student of Champs Learning makes us proud with high grades during their year 9 assessment and thus they can choose the subjects they wish to study further.
