Students in Years 7 – 9 will be sitting end of year exams during our exam week Monday 12th June – Friday 16th June. These exams are an opportunity to consolidate knowledge gained throughout the year, practise revision skills, to identify gaps in learning, to show progress in subjects and to experience sitting exams in large groups.
Exam week timetables will be available via student’s Form’s Google Classroom. And are available using the links below.
Students will have an assembly from Mr Martin, when they return after half term, regarding the logistics of end of year exams and how to look after themselves during this period. We have also produced a KWS Revision guide to support how best to revise. We recommend parents and carers to review these documents with their child.
Here at Katherine Warington School we try to teach students that revision must be active to be efficient. Many students incorrectly assume that revision means reading through their exercise book or textbook once or twice and that this will be sufficient to remember and understand the detail. Students are currently having a number of Form sessions reviewing the science of revision. The links to the first two Loom videos created for this are below:
Specific information regarding the content of exams and how students can best prepare for these will be available from individual subject areas in advance of each exam. Staff are only too happy to help with any issues and we recommend students talk to their teachers, form tutor, head of year or the pastoral team (including our in-school counsellors) if they need any support or advice.
