Mrs Lewis wants to thank all of the students for their hard work over this demanding examination period and parents for their support with this. We would like to remind all Year 11 students that the Physics department run workshops on Wednesday and Thursday lunchtime. Additionally, all Year 11 Physics students will be receiving a copy of a book called ‘Ten Minute Tests’ – these provide excellent material to review work while ensuring revision is active. We recommend students complete these tests in supervised study or at home and we have put together a suggested schedule. Girls may mark them themselves or if they give them in will receive house points!
Lower down the School we have been enjoying trying out some of the Institute of Physics’ ‘Marvin and Milo’ experiments which can be found here http://www.physics.org/marvinandmilo.asp. In recent sessions pupils have investigated ice and tried to separate books. Some of our Year 10 students are also putting together videos of the GCSE required practicals which we hope will be useful revision aids in the future.
