How to support my child

 

Year 11 Revision Guide 

This booklet gives further information that can be used at home to help support the revision process for the examinations. Each subject area offers guidance about revision tools and techniques which could be used and suitable revision resources. Details of additional revision sessions are also included. Good luck!

 

GCSEPod for KS4

 The academy currently subscribes to a service called GCSEPod which is completely free to your son and which we believe will be of great benefit to him when preparing for his exams.

GCSEPod has over 3,500 teacher-written, audio-visual podcasts produced specifically for mobile devices and containing all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams that learners need for GCSE success.  The GCSEPod website can be viewed on mobiles, tablets and PCs and the podcasts can be downloaded for offline viewing.  The podcasts are also mapped to the curriculum and are designed to support students in the classroom, with their homework and during exam time. 

All KS4 students have already created a username and a password with GCSEPod.  If they haven’t already done so, they simply need to activate their account.  To access GCSEPod for the first time, students should follow these four steps:

  1. Go to www.gcsepod.com and click “Login” in the top right hand corner
  2. Click “New here?  Get started.”
  3. Enter their name, date of birth and choose their school
  4. Select a username and password (to be used when they next login) and select the subjects they study

Once logged in, students can search for podcasts by keyword, by a specific exam or by subject area.  Students can create their own personalised learning playlists which can be easily downloaded for offline viewing. 

Help and explanation for parents are available at www.gcsepod.com/parents
