  • Students have access to both AQA textbooks (Christianity and Islam) via Kerboodle.  This will enable them to view their textbook at home.  They should read over topics studied in class for consolidation and use the pages that help with how to approach different styles of questions.  At the end of each unit there is a checklist of what they need to know and sample examination questions they can use to prepare for assessments, prelims and ultimately their GCSE examinations.
  • RE Surgery is on a Monday in H66, 1:30-2pm for support if needed.  If you have been asked to attend, please do so as you can have directed support by RE teachers at this time to prepare you for your GCSE.
  • Development is often an issue for students wishing to improve grades – make sure you can support your points with examples and evidence.  Go through each topic and write a list of Bible references (and references from the Qur’an or Hadith when we get to Islam) you could use and real life examples of people/events you could include in an answer.
  • Revision cards can also be very helpful for learning key terms and definitions, or concepts.  Write the key word on one side and the definition on the other.  Test yourself or get someone else to test you.  Apps like Flashcards or Brainscape can be used on your phones or tablets.
  • Mindmaps work for some people – write one for each topic including key terms, key concepts and evidence/examples.  Use colour to separate ideas and images to help trigger your memory.  Put them up at home.
