History Revision Webinar 8th May 2019

Dear Parents,

The History department has paid for a student revision webinar on the 8th May 2019. This session will happen after school from 3.30-5.00pm. We ask that students who decide to attend stay for the whole session so as not to disturb others who wish to partake in the event. The session is led by Hodder Education and covers valuable material for the Paper 2 History exam on Britain: Health and the Nation.  The Structure of the session is as follows:

AQA GCSE (9-1) History: Health and the people (Student revision webinar)

3.30pm Introductions and sound checks
3.35pm Key content

  •  The importance of chronology
  • Which factor was the most important in improving the health of the nation over time?
  •  How important was individual genius in the history of medicine?
4.15pm Activity break
4.25pm Key skills

  •  How to tackle the source question
  •  How to write a successful factors essay
  •  How to tackle the significance and comparison questions
4.55pm Review and reflect
5.00pm Webinar ends

 

In order to facilitate this event we ask that students select to attend this session now. This will enable us to provide an adequate space for the expected numbers. The department will cover the full cost of the session but we ask that students recognise that this is an additional event organised to help extend their exam skills and knowledge for the second exam and expect full engagement in the revision activity.

If you wish for them to attend the event please return the slip to your child’s History teacher or alternatively respond via email to myself (please ensure you include the name of your child).

 

Yours faithfully

Mrs M Wilkinson
