Higher Chemistry 2020/21

If you’ve been doing the work for Higher Chemistry over the last 4 weeks you’ll have covered 3 topics:

  • The Periodic Table
  • Bonding & Structure
  • Periodic Table Trends

These topics can be found on the Scholar website as part of the first Higher Chemistry Unit, ‘Chemical Changes & Structure’.

If you don’t have your own log-in details you can use:

An easier week this week! All you have to do is complete this Unit 1 Higher Quiz to determine ‘Chemist of the Month’. The quiz is 20 multiple choice questions; 5 from each of the three topics and 5 SQA exam questions.

Anyone who is a bit behind should use this week to catch up can send in their quiz answers at the end of the week. Just e-mail Mr Clark with the 20 letters in the correct order(rclark@cumbernauldac.n-lanark.sch.uk) and he will mark them, return your results individually and post the winner(s) next week.

Looking forward to lots of marking, I’m starting to miss it!

Good Luck,


Mr Clark, Mr Linnen & Mr McCranor



S3 and S4 Biology

S3 and S4 Biologists…

Weekly tasks will now be set every Monday starting from next week. The tasks will appear on the Microsoft teams page that you have been added to. Check that you can access this through Glow.

Although we will post answers for you to check your work on Fridays, we’d love to see anything you have completed! We miss teaching you so much! You can email your teacher photos or word docs of your work 🙂

Higher Chemistry 2020/21

If the students who are intending to study Higher Chemistry have engaged with the tasks set over the last three weeks they should have completed the ‘Periodic Table’ and ‘Bonding & Structures’ topics of the first Unit, ‘Chemical Changes & Structure’, from the Scholar website.

Over the next week students should work through the ‘Periodic Table Trends’ topic.

If you’re not up to speed yet, don’t race through the work to catch up. Work through the topics thoroughly rather than quickly, it’s not a race.


We appreciate that you’re getting little teacher input at this stage, so make sure you do the topic tests, take a note of the things you’re getting wrong and contact one of the chemistry teachers by email if you require help.
