Year 7 Assessment

Maths

You will be assessed using a scaffolded Foundation 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 be assessed on how well you can write an effective P.E.E.(L) paragraph, using the markscheme from a GCSE English Literature question. All preparation for this assessment will be completed in your English lessons, so no extra revision is required.

 

Science

You will be assessed on the chemistry and physics of fireworks. The GCSE graded paper will include questions on elements, compounds and states of matter. You will also be required to draw accurate ray diagrams and identify the key concepts of sound. In week 9 you will also have the opportunity to show your learning by producing a poster presentation on how we see, hear and make fireworks.
 To support revision, you can access support from online activities using the ActiveLearn website, Doddle and BBC Bitesize.
