Year 10 Physics – Combined
|Curriculum Modules||What will my child be learning?||What homework will they be set?||How do I support my child?|
|P4 Electric circuits||P4.1 Current and charge
P4.2 Potential difference and resistance – Required Practical Activity
P4.3 Component characteristics – Required Practical Activity
P4.4 Series circuits
P4.5 Parallel circuits
The students are given a homework book, either higher tier or foundation tier based on their Kimberley School Target.
The students will be allocated pages to complete in this book for homework, which corresepond to the lessons taught in class.
The questions involve:
Help them revise from the classwork books.
Ensure they complete homework on time. Encourage them to ask their teachers for help if they are stuck.
Test knowledge and use of key words and terminology.
Help revision of key topics and required practical activities completed in class.
Encourage revision methods such as using flashcards to summarise and test knowledge.
