Year 10 into 11 ( Term 6)
Your work this term will consist of covering the medicine through time course in its entirety. The revision guides will enable you to complete the work on the 18th and 19th centuries (The Industrial Revolution) and the Present Day (since 1900) before returning to Medieval Britain and the Renaissance. Each guide contains information to read and quick knowledge tests to assess your understanding. You can then go back to the information to self-mark your work. It would make sense to complete the work in this order:
- Medicine Revision Guide Industrial Revolution 1 (week beginning 15th June 2020)
- Medicine Revision Guide Industrial Revolution 2 (week beginning 22nd June 2020)
- Medicine Revision Guide Present Day (week beginning 29th June 2020)
- Medicine Revision Guide Medieval (week beginning 6th July 2020)
- Medicine Revision Guide Renaissance (week beginning 13th July 2020)
Answers to the knowledge tests are available here to check your self-marking.
Year 12 into 13 (Term 6)
Between the 22nd June and 3rd July you should ensure that your understanding of the Glorious Revolution is strong. Useful websites are:
In addition you can find out about how to answer exam questions on the Glorious Revolution by working through the PowerPoint ‘Glorious Revolution with narration’ which is on your class site on Teams in a folder called Home Learning under the files tab. If it seems to cut out the video you just have to reload it to get the full narrative.
From 6th July you could start work on the witchcraze unit by reading about the Scientific Revolution. The document ‘Witchcraze Scientific Revolution’ outlines the key points you need to know and has an exam-style question if you want to try it. Other readings may also be available on Teams.
Generic mark schemes for the two questions are here.
