Revision Planning- How can parents help?
The sooner your child starts, the better!
If you child hasn’t started revising, now is the time. Students need to plan their revision around their school day and other routines. A revision plan should be started now. All students have already been given a blank revision planning template that they should have used over the February half term. With the Easter holidays not far away, term time and holiday revision templates are attached for you to be able to support your child in creating a realistic and manageable timetable. The Easter holiday provides the opportunity for students to manage their time and complete the intense revision they need as they approach the final weeks before their GCSEs. A copy is attached that you can adapt to suit your child.
Helping your child:
- Look at the revision planner and identify the times when events and activities are already planned so they do not double book. E.g. visits to relatives, socialising with friends etc.
- Look at the revision planner and identify the best times to revise (times that your child can realistically adhere to).
- Ask your child to list all the subjects that they need to cover for exam revision.
- Balance the subjects throughout the week.
- Plan 20-30 minute revision chunks with a 5 min break in between and a longer break after one hour.
- Display the timetable so that you (and the family) know what should be happening when; this way you can support and encourage your child.
