This is now 11th June
You can do the test any time during this week
Please place orders in the order books, there is just one tier
I would like all marks to me on a class list by Thursday 21st June, as I have to then pass the marks to SIMS
Please tell your year 7 and 8 groups about these
They are £2
They need to bring the £2 in an envelope with their name and form on the front to Lab 2 prep room and they can then exchange it for a revision guide
Here is a list of the updated Guide/Support Sheets for students who are being prepared to tackle practical activities related to KS4 ISA’s (to be completed this weekend…)

Martyn is constructing some online revision materials for KS3 Science. The activities are totally interactive, and promote AfL and independent learning. They can be done anywhere students have access to a computer. The software is HotPotatoes, and it only takes less than 10 minutes to get familiar with this superb program. Activities can be stored on computers, printed out, or uploaded for total interactive experience. The activities include Cloze, Crossword, Matching Exercises, Jumbled Sentences, Multiple Choice Questions. So, these exercises can be used as suitable for starter and/or consolidation activities in lessons. There are useful online guides on how to make your own exercises. You can download Hot Potatoes Software from http://hotpot.uvic.ca/ .
Here are some sample exercises recently constructed for 21st Century Science :

To help year 8 revise for their end of year test there will be a revision session on Wednesday 6th June after school for an hour.
I could do will 2 volunteers to help me run this activity. Please let me know if you would like to help.
Letters will be going out to year 8 next week.
