6 What to Revise?
7 Use revision guide delete what you don t need and already know
8 Use test, assessment or mock exam reviews often on blue paper
10 The mock paper your child completed this half term will be marked. Students will complete this yellow sheet to help identify what they need to do next The next past paper will be finished over the weekend of November. A further sheet will be completed.
11 Once you have a list: Sort by broad category in Maths : Number, Algebra, Shape, Data Then sort within categories by priority. Concentrate on easier topics and those that appear a lot on exams. Make sure you only include things you have been taught Refine the list as you go along, add to it, tick it off Bear in mind the syllabus won t be finished yet so you will need to add to this later
12 How Do I Revise It? Find where you did the work in your exercise book Copy out questions/examples that you have answers for and attempt them Re-read notes and check your work, do some more out of your revision guide/workbook Head for the internet..

22 Help your child revise English Language GCSE Highlighters colour coding Visual revision everywhere Google classroom
23 Highlighters Why use highlighters and a colour system? 15 minutes reading time use it wisely to prepare for the writing of your answers 90% information transmitted to the brain is visual and using the same colour for the same source and question will help your brain revise how to answer the paper.
24 Highlighters How can we use highlighters when reading sources? Past paper inserts are available from either you English teacher or the AQA website.
25 Question 1 = Source 1 Highlight what you learn in pink/purple to make it easier to visualise these steps in the exam.
26 Question 2 = Source 2 Highlight the headline, image, and linking texts in green to make it easier to visualise these steps in the exam.
27 Question 3 = Source 3 Highlight the thoughts and feelings in orange to make it easier to visualise these steps in the exam.
28 Question 4 = Source 3 and 1/2 Highlight language devices in source 3 and either 1 or 2 so that it is really easy to spot the devices you will analyse in Question 4.
29 Highlighters How can I use highlighters to revise without sources? Newspaper articles - Just 1 newspaper article can give you the opportunity to revise all questions! Q1 Q4 Q2 Q3
31 Visual revision is everywhere! Not at home with your highlighters and exercise book? Look around you to see how you can revise!
32 Google classroom Walk and talk through mock Practise paper preparation for your mock and real GCSE.
34 Mr Nicholson
35 Revision Should Be... Applied should be relevant to the exam questions. Challenging should be making the brain work. Timely as early as possible before the exam, in a way that avoids procrastination and does not waste time. Individual: In the way that works for the student s own methods of learning. Varied: In order to maintain motivation / engagement. Engaging: captures the attention of the student.
36 So how can we come up with a strategy that fits all learning styles?
37 According to Baddley (2005) Careful organisation of the material to be learnt is undisputed as the best way to remember.
38 Say hello to... The Revision Wall
39 The starting point for a Geography revision wall Natural Hazards Population Geography Topics Economic Development Coasts Settlement Rivers
40 Forced migration: when people have no choice and either have to, or are made, to move. natural disasters e.g. earthquakes man-made disasters e.g. war and ethnic cleansing overpopulation or a lack of resources, causing famine racial discrimination or religious and political persecution government schemes e.g. building of a dam Emigrants: people who leave a country Immigrants: people who arrive in a country Push factors: things that encourage, and sometimes force, people to leave the countryside not enough jobs lack of investment few opportunities lack of food political fears modern machinery means fewer farmers needed lose jobs poor facilities e.g. schools, hospitals crop failure due to natural disasters such as floods and droughts overpopulation Voluntary migration: when people choose to move improve standard of living e.g. better jobs improve quality of life e.g. retiring to live in warmer climate good services and amenities e.g. schools, hospitals, entertainment to be with friends or relatives Migration Rural-urban migration The movement of people from the countryside to the city (usually LEDCs) Counterurbanisation The process by which people move away from the major cities to smaller settlements, often villages (usually MEDCs). Employment: industry declined in inner cities and move to edge-of-city and rural sites. People move for promotion or simply to find a job Housing: people move away from the city for large, modern houses with garages and gardens Environmental factors: move away from noise, air and visual pollution created by increased traffic in cities to quieter, less polluted places with open space Social factors: move away because of increased crime rates and poorer educational facilities Pull factors: things that attract people to the city more jobs better housing education and medical care bright lights entertainment better way of life more chance of a good water supply and more reliable food supply life expectancy is longer
41 Portable revision cards could make up the revision wall when not in use.
42 Revision wall strategies Carefully use colour to differentiate between different topics in a subject. Be portable, can be used as revision cards when necessary. Listen to specific music when revising each topic within a subject. Force students to condense the topic content.
