Year 11 Independent Study

Posted by: Kerry Bryan on 24-01-2019

Year 11 Students have received their Science PPE results and papers and should now be focused on the gaps in their knowledge that they have identified from going through their PPE papers with their teachers during their independent study.

For Separate Science, the next steps should be

  • Increase the time you are spending on your revision.
  • Ensure you know your activelearn login to access the online textbooks. If not see Mrs Bryan during tutor time (science office).
  • Use the interactive resources on Activelearn.
  • Ensure you know your login for GCSEpod and use the resources in your independent revision.
  • Attend the revision sessions on a Tuesday morning (Biology) and evening (Chemistry) and a Wednesday evening (Physics).
  • Go through your PPE papers and highlight the gaps in your knowledge.
  • Make a revision timetable.
  • Keep revising! You will have further in class assessments after the half term break
  • See your teachers for extra help! Pop in before/during/after school.

For Combined Science, the next steps should be

  • Increase the time you are spending on your revision.
  • Ensure you know your activelearn login to access the online textbooks. If not see Mrs Bryan during tutor time (science office).
  • Use the interactive resources on Activelearn.
  • Ensure you know your login for GCSEpod and use the resources in your independent revision.
  • Attend the revision sessions on a Thursday morning and evening.
  • Keep revising! You will have further in class assessments after the half term break
  • See your teachers for extra help! Pop in before/during/after school

In addition to these next steps for Combined Science, please see below for the corresponding textbook page numbers for each topic area that the students should be revising.

This checklist has been designed to provide structure for independent revision of the following topics in to improve understanding and secure key concepts. It requires using the online textbook that can be accessed by all students.

  • Read the pages given in the table and create revision notes/ flash cards for each topic
  • Some of the spreads have key diagrams / tables, include these in your notes/flash cards
  • Each Topic has a number of in text questions throughout, use your revision notes/flashcards  to answer those questions
  • Each Topic has an exam-style question at the end of each spread and additional ones for all Core Practicals, use your revision notes/flashcards to answer those question
