... and it was straight down to business.... Purposefully designed to reflect the real examination with the use of past papers and igcse Cambridge exam tips and strategies, it was straight into practising Paper 2 Map Skills, revisiting the skills learnt throughout Years 10 & 11. Students are allowed the flexibility of attending the clinics anytime between 4.15 pm and 6.00 pm, meaning that the clinics are in touch with students'needs and after school arrangements, allowing greater flexibility and student accessibility.
Lead by Mr Stimpson and Mr Bezodis, the clinics are designed to be 'bolt-on' additional strategies to the pupils' own revision schedules and go hand-in-hand with their revision timetables, which should be underway very soon, if not already so.
The beauty of the clinics is the much higher teacher to student ratio (5 students to 1 teacher today), and this allows focused pupil-bespoke teaching and instruction. Ultimately, these clinics also raise pupil confidence and paper familiarity - a huge boon in exam preparation.
Next week, it's straight into Theme 1 revision (Paper 1 mainly), followed by Themes 2 & 3 through exam paper practice.
No need to sign up - all Year 11 iGCSE Geography are invited between those times above in L 102. Clinics will run until the Easter holidays on Thursdays".
