Year 11 Virtual Revision Evening – 04/11/20
Hello and welcome to our virtual Revision Evening!
As we are unable to deliver our sessions in person we have produced several pre-recorded revision sessions, designed to support our students and parents as we move towards the Year 11 mock exams. The sessions available are:
- Creating an effective revision timetable. Guidance for students and parents on how to effectively manage time in the run up to exams, and how best to structure revision. Click to here to play
- GCSE Pod for parents. This workshop will guide parents on how to use GCSE Pod to support revision, including how to make playlists and how to browse the different subjects. Click here to play
- Four effective revision strategies. Miss Moss will talk through four of the most effective revision strategies and explain how to build these in to revision timetables to maximise learning. Click here to play
- Pace of revision. In this workshop we will look at how to prevent overloading students with information and how to pace revision so that learning sticks and burnout is avoided. Click here to play
- Changes to GCSE exams. Mrs Knowles will talk through the changes that have been made to the 2020/20201 GCSE exam series to give parents a better understanding of the content being examined. Click here to play
We will also be hosting a live, virtual Q&A session for parents on Wednesday 4th November between 5-6pm. Invitations to this session have been sent to your child’s school email address. This session will give you an opportunity to ask any questions you might have regarding the Year 11 mock exam series, how to support your child’s revision or anything GCSE related! Simply join the meeting on Teams and ask away. If you are unable to attend the session but have a question, please do email them to Mrs Knowles (email@example.com).
We hope these sessions are useful for you, and look forward to seeing many of you in the virtual session!
