Key Stage 3 Physics
How to use this site
There are many ways this site can help your learning.
- If you miss a lesson for whatever reason, I expect you to look up the topics on the website so you are ready to continue with the rest of the class.
- Obviously, when revising for a test it is an invaluable resources.
- There are questions for some subtopics and at the end of every topic. Try to do them all. It is easy to convince yourself that you understand, but doing the questions is the best way to prove it. You don't need to print them out, just write down your answers then mark them. All questions on the site come with answers.
- Marking them is the most important part of the learning process. What did you get wrong? Why did you get it wrong? Would you get it right if asked a similar question in future? If you get stuck, then note which question you are struggling with and come and ask me.
You may be using this site as part of a Flipped Classroom approach to learning.
What is expected of you before the lesson.
- You should find the relevant topic. Clue: It is the next one after whatever we did in the previous lesson. If in doubt, ask!
- Read the website and/or watch the videos before the lesson. I will expect you to remember and understand enough for us to have a conversation about it next lesson.
- If you like to make notes, then make some. If making notes does not help your learning, then don't bother. You decide what works for you.
- If you don't understand something, then write down a question that you would like to ask in class and bring it with you.
- You should spend approximately thirty minutes a week doing this.
- If you are aiming high, try to watch the Ted-Ed videos as well. These are always excellent. They may be directly related to the topic or on similar lines. Do not panic if you don't understand everything that is said in these videos, but I am always happy to talk about them with you.
