SCIENCE – How parents can help their son/daughter

Students will be completing the course for two of the Sciences shortly after the Easter holiday, so the two week break is an ideal opportunity for students to identify the areas where they need extra help from their teachers.  Educake can be used by students (they must make sure that they use the GCSE Combined Science OCR Gateway pages), as well as specimen and past questions which can be found on the OCR website and www.physicsandmathstutor.com.  We look forward to seeing lots of students at help sessions with past questions that they need help with!

Unit 2 trial exams will take place in Science lessons during the week beginning 9th April.  These will cover all material in B4-6, C4-6 and P4-6.  Since this is the final set of trial exams, students will sit the tier for which they are entered in the summer.

Please continue to support your child with learning Physics formulae and key definitions.  Revision guides are still available from the Science Prep Room and help sessions will continue after the Easter holiday from 3.20pm-4.20pm every Friday.

Thank you for your support.
