Year 11 Revision Homework Plan
Please find attached a revision program that has already been shared with your child and is designed to support them as they prepare for their mock exams after October half term. It has broken down all the topics covered for biology, chemistry and physics for their paper 1 examinations. For students in 11n1 they will be awarded 3 GCSEs and for all other groups who are studying combined science course (11n2-11s3) they will be awarded 2 GCSEs. It is expected that each student spends at least an hour on each science subject a week.
The revision program is supported by the CGP complete revision and practice guides which are available for purchase from the school’s finance office at a reduced price of £4.00 per subject for the combined course, (available in higher or foundation tier) and £5.50 for the separate course (11n1). These guides will also provide support with revision for the final examinations.
As a department we have also invested in the online formative assessment program called ‘Educake’ where the students can access questions for each week’s homework. All students have previously been given their log in details for this but if they have misplaced them they can ask their class teacher for a reminder.
It is a fact that the students that started their revision early and used the resources available performed better in their summer exams.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or your child’s science teacher.
“By using Educake, I was able to smash my predicted 55 grade to an incredible 76. Use it!”
