Information for parents of Year 10 students from the KS4 information evening at Chew Valley School, October 2015

Published in: Education
  • I am very grateful for Jeevan's program because it taught me many techniques on how to overcome common mistakes made in maths. Also, his revision strategy is unique because the same principles can be used in other subjects too and not only maths. Thank you Jeevan, your techniques are very useful!◆◆◆ http://ishbv.com/jeevan91/pdf

  14. 14. But, I don’t have any homework set! • * Continuing with coursework or assessment tasks that have been set previously • * Re-capping - look at your timetable, is there any work you did today in a lesson that you need to do more on, complete, re-draft or understand better by reading it over again or completing more examples? • * Preparation - look at tomorrow’s timetable. Do you need to re-read work to help you get ready for tomorrow? Have you forgotten stuff from last week – if so look at it now. Check your homework is ready for handing in tomorrow - could you improve it? • * Extra research - the school homework planner has recommended websites that you could visit to help you really get ahead and boost your grades • * Check Bitesize/past papers/SAM Learning/ Revision sites – this is especially good for older students. Check Insight Portal - is there work you could look at there? • * Tidy and organise - sort out your workspace, tidy out your bag or pencil case. Make sure you have got the school equipment you need. • * ‘Read around. Read extra articles, research, information about work that interests you or that you need to know more about. • * Research jobs and courses, know what qualifications you need to follow your dreams.
