History (Spring 2)

Following the completion of the mock exams, students will be revising for their final summer exams. Students will practice the key skills to be successful in their exams, including writing skills as well as skills relating to source material and interpretations. To begin with, students will complete re-teach, covering the gaps identified from the mocks followed by large overview pieces of work to ensure students can see the big picture of each topic before going smaller into finer detail about specific events and topics.

How parents can get involved:

  • Encourage your child to make timelines of each topic.
  • Ensure your child is revising history once a week.
  • Ask your students to explain specific topics to you following revision.
  • Ensure your child to use the revision guides that they have been provided with as well as using online platforms such as GCSEpod.
