KS3 Science (Biology): Human Reproduction
It’s a question asked by humans all over the world for thousands of years ‘where did I come from?’. This topic explores human reproduction and development. The topic will be treated sensitively by an experienced teacher. The focus will be on factual presentation of scientific information. If you have any questions about this topic please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
These live and interactive lessons are based on the KS3 Science National Curriculum, they will help students prepare for GCSE Biology or other similar qualifications.
The lessons are typically suited to students aged approximately 10-14 years of age. Small groups (capped at 10) ensure students get the opportunity to interact with the tutor and have their questions answered.
Lessons can be taken as a whole topic (recommended) or individually, if preferred, as they are written to make sense on a lesson by lesson basis.
