Maths

You will be assessed using a scaffolded Foundation/Higher Non-Calculator GCSE 9-1 paper. This will contain many of the topics that you have covered in maths so far this year. You have a detailed list of topic areas to focus on for revision and have started to look at this already. Useful websites to support revision would be Hegarty Maths, Maths Watch (login pnumber@fiveislands, password isosceles) and Just Maths (login FiveStudent, password Five).

 

English

You will write two short essays on ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ under assessment conditions. Feedback from the essays completed during our diagnostic week, and preparation time for the assessment essays will be given during class. You will need to choose and learn a selection of key quotations for the second ‘elsewhere in the novel’ essay, which you can do using our class Quizlet sets.

 

Science

You will be assessed using sample questions from the new GCSE 9-1 specification. The topics we have covered this quadmester are Acids and Alkalis, Calculations Involving Masses, Rates of Reaction and Heat Energy Changes in Chemical Reactions. Every student has been emailed comprehensive revision checklists for each of these areas. They have also received an electronic copy of the Core Practical Guide which gives details of the 3 Core Practicals we have covered this quadmester alongside sample exam questions relating to them with model answers to help students prepare. Students have also been emailed guidance to support them in practicing structuring the 6 mark questions which feature in every exam. We have utilized a variety of revision techniques in class which include revision cards and post it notes, mind mapping and posters, kahoots, quizlet, bbc bitesize and doddle and practice GCSE questions - something out there to suit every learning style!
