There will be exam questions and revision set for homework weekly. For controlled assessment tasks all work and preparation must be done in class, therefore there will not be homework at this time.

Controlled assessment will be about British people in the Wars. The questions change every year, but the pupils will be informed at the start of the preparation phase.

On the Key stage 4 website there are revision materials and podcasts and bite size revision. The pupils will also be supplied with a revision guide for Papers 1 & 2 by their class teachers in Year 11.

If there are any queries concerning GCSE History please contact Miss Davison (Head of Department)
