S3 Biology

In S3 Biology, you will cover the following topics:

  • The World Around Us
  • The Building Blocks of Life
  • Living Machines

In “The Building Blocks of Life”, we dive further into the life of cells, and study DNA, enzymes, genetic engineering and how cells produce energy.

“Living Machines” looks at the bigger picture – studying entire systems within organisms eg the nervous system, the reproductive system and transport systems in both animals and plants.

In “The World Around Us”, we examine the wide variety and distribution of life on Earth and the impact that humans have had on the environment e.g. pollution and the use of genetically modified organisms. We also study the theory of natural selection and how a new species is formed.
