Year 11 Curriculum Map – Easter to May half term  

Maths 

Students will now have finished the scheme of work and are working on a programme of revision that runs up until the summer. This term is spent preparing for mock exams, using data from the previous practice exams to form the in-class revision programme, tailoring the teaching to the specific needs of the class. Where individual students have issues on a topic these are addressed through homework tasks and additional support. We also continue to complete past paper practice every fortnight throughout year 11 to identify further key areas for development.
