Y11 Christmas Break Homework

Computer Science

  • Create a revision document (e.g. a concept map, poster, your own knowledge organiser) on the Systems Architecture Unit.
  • Then, answer the questions given to you during your Computer Science lesson.
  • Once you have answered all the questions, use the revision resource you have created and also any other revision website/book and add to any of the questions that you did not feel confident answering.
  • Complete the programming  questions given to you in class. 

English 

For English Literature revision, please answer the following recall questions on ‘Journey’s End’ and ‘Romeo and Juliet’. Try to do as many from memory first, then use your books and notes to fill in the ones you are not sure about.

The reason why we are setting you this is because you will have a PPE on ‘Journey’s End’ and ‘Romeo and Juliet’, so it will help with your revision.

It is important you write an answer for every question and complete both sections. Where possible, try to use a quotation to support your answer.

It is due on the first Wednesday back, Wednesday 10th January.

For English Language revision, please complete a minimum of one practice from ‘Section A’ (Reading Section) and one practice from ‘Section B’ (Writing Section). There is a guide of how to answer each question at the front of the booklet to support your responses. When we return after Christmas, we will be completing a ‘Walking Talking Mock’ for Language Paper 2 before completing your PPE in February. It is therefore really important that you practise this paper as much as possible so that you feel confident for your mock exams.

Your Section A and B response is due on the first Wednesday back, Wednesday 10th January.

Drama 

For Drama Theory revision, please re read your copy of blood brothers, and complete the character study in your revision booklet.

PPE’s are coming at us rapidly, and with rehearsals for Component 3, we need to keep on top on Blood Brothers.

It is important you use your blood brothers script to complete the booklet and refamiliarize ourselves with the characters and text.

It is due on the first Wednesday back, Wednesday 10th January.

Keep reading your Comp 3 extracts so we can continue to work on these in class.

Film Studies

Students should complete their revision booklet, which will be given to them in class. This will also be available online. Students should also revise the Timeline of Film Technology in preparation for a timeline test in their first lesson back after the holidays.

Maths 

To support your preparation for your upcoming Maths PPE Exams, you have been set 2 GCSE Maths Calculator papers to complete over the Christmas break. These have been set on MathsWatch https://vle.mathswatch.co.uk/vle/  so you should be able to access this easily as it is how you receive your weekly homework.

You will have 2 GCSE Maths AQA papers to complete over the break (both calculator papers). Try your best on both papers and show full workings to gain method marks.

I have included this link to help you with topic video links if needed  https://corbettmaths.com/contents/

 The deadline is the first Thursday back (11th January).

Statistics 

The Year 11 Stats homework should be done on MyMaths and consists of (currently) 3 online revision worksheets. This is already on the app.

Design and Technology

Students to finish off their final design page including the annotation, drawing and rendering.

History

Please complete the revision activities linking to the Development of the USA, 1929-2000 module. You have all been given a paper copy, but if you have lost this, please see below. Using retrieval practice, you should complete at least 1 concept map using the template at the end of the document. It is probably a good option to pick a topic area that you know you need to work on. You can complete the recall questions as an additional piece of work. When you return in January, we will be shifting our focus on the USA module as this will be examined in your February PPEs so it is a good idea to get a head start.

Art

Coursework folders will need to be submitted in January ready for students to receive their exam papers.

Over the Christmas holiday, students should be ensuring that all work is mounted and presented in their folders – this includes primary research, artist research and practical responses. A priority for all students will be to ensure that annotations are completed in folders as very few students are up to date with this and it will contribute significantly to their grade.
