    Today I ws told the names have changed??

    It used to be 7A Cells
    7B Reproduction etc etc

    Someone said that the atoms and elements topics is now one topic a sis rocks??? Any news/ update on this would be most welcome.
    I was keen to just teach 7A etc over 3 years.... but I guess now with loss of SATS it doesnt matter as much.... Also is there scope in introduce other topics at KS3 like forensics for example??

    I've taught forensics at KS3 for years now. You are free to teach whatever you want as long as you follow the NC (and how you interpret its requirements). The topics you refer to are just the old QCA topics - they were never mandatory but many schools adopted them because you couldn't really be criticised for using them and the schemes were free. Your dept might be better off sitting down together and writing something you would all enjoy teaching.
