Year 11 Parent Information Evening (Revision)

Revision Evening 3/2/20 How Parents & Carers Can Help. Organisation and Planning It is important to have a plan as to when & what you will revise. Encourage your child to take breaks from revision they should not really revise for longer than an

hour without a short break. Use regular praise and encourage them to make a start on revision tasks. It is important to have a quiet place free from distractions to revise. Useful Techniques 1. Mind Mapping They are a great way to give an overview of a topic. You can be very creative with them. Plain paper and some coloured pens are all you really need in terms of resources.

You child can then display them on the wall and in key places before their exam. Mind Maps Use: Lines Symbols WORDS Color

Images Useful Techniques 2. Revision Cards Its a great idea to create a selection of cards that cover a topic. Try to condense the information and include questions. These are a great place for parents and carers to support by asking the questions and checking answers. Cards are available in most shops.

Revision Cards The website quizlet is really useful in helping with revision cards. What is GCSEpod?
