X26 Skipper – STEAM Extended Study – Revision

X26 (Year 7) Skipper have an assessment in STEAM on Tuesday of next week.

(Due to the staff days Admiral will have their assessment later in the week, I will put an additional post on when Admiral students are prepped for their revision.)

 

X26 Skipper Students need to revise for the following two learning targets:

LT6: I can explain how the states of matter are a function of the spacing and movement of the particles that make up a substance.

LT7: I can demonstrate how the motion and spacing of particles in a substance change as the substance changes state of matter.

 

On the Over the Top expedition website, there are lots of resources to help students with their revision. Some students have also taken their STEAM exercise books home to revise.

The expedition website can be accessed from the school homepage at any point by clicking n the menu on Students,  Year 7, 7 Expeditions.

Under “STEAM Case Study 1” there are revision guides, quizzes and example assessment questions.

 

How should my son or daughter revise?

The most important things to remember about revision are that watching videos or reading information are not revision. You can help at home by quizzing your son or daughter and testing what they know.

The most effective way to revise is to do retrieval practice and the apply this knowledge to questions. This video explains how that works.

Students have set their own priorities for revision based on areas for development from mini-quizzes this week.
