All students have access to a range of revision materials via Microsoft Teams including:

  • A guide on how to revise in history
  • Examples of how to undertake revision
  • Access to all lessons and work booklets undertaken in class
  • Access to digital textbooks and revision guides endorsed by AQA

All students will be provided with a folder to organise their revision material alongside individual revision booklets for each module which will aid them in the creation of revision resources. Students are encouraged to focus on individual topics during each revision session and ensure their revision is active. This means creating revision resources such as mind maps and flash cards. Students should then use their revision workbook, as well as accessing past papers through the Corby Technical School website to test themselves on the subject they have just revised.

To encourage good practice student should use their cue cards to test their factual knowledge alongside creating more detailed revision notes/mind maps for each of the topics shown in the revision guides.

All revision resources will be provided by the History department.
