Year 11 Advanced Information

Exam boards have now published their advanced information for the summer exam series.  Advanced information is not needed in some subjects (identified below) as adjustments have already been made to the course.  Where there is advanced information, the hyperlinks will take you to the Exam board subject pages.

  • AQA and Pearson Edexcel links will take you to the exam board subjects homepage, please scroll down to the bottom of the pages to access the information. 
  • OCR Links will take you to a drop down menu, select GCSE and subject.
  • WJEC will take you straight to the information. It is important to note that the advanced information is for higher tariff marks, other content could still be assessed.

We are now in the process of linking revision resources for each topic to help students organise their revision, we hope to have these completed by half term.

Strategies for helping your child to read at home

Scientific research shows clearly that a student who reads regularly for 20 minutes per day is far more likely to be successful at GCSE level and beyond and reading regularly will also encourage and nurture a love of reading that will continue into adulthood.

The most important thing to remember is that any reading is useful and encouraging your children to read daily will improve their vocabulary, familiarity of words and their confidence.

  1. Set an example: Let your children see you reading for pleasure.
  2. Make reading materials accessible: Leave books, magazines, and newspapers around to encourage your child to read. Alert them to interesting articles you have read and share books that you have enjoyed.
  3. Give children an opportunity to choose what they read: Talk to your child about what they enjoy reading. Any reading is beneficial and this could include books, magazines, blogs and articles. Reading doesn’t only need to be fictional and finding a key interest can be very encouraging.
  4. Build on your child’s interests: Look for books and articles that feature their favourite sports teams, role models, hobbies, or interests.
  5. Talk to your child about their reading: Giving your child an opportunity to discuss what they have read will encourage them to engage with their reading.
  6. Encourage your child to take their Accelerated Reader quizzes: Incentivise reading by reminding your child to quiz.  Certificates and prizes are awarded for successful quizzing and for the number of words read.

When I think of all the books still left for me to read, I am certain of further happiness. Jules Renard
