Year 11 Physics – Combined

Curriculum Modules What will my child be learning? What homework will they be set? How do I support my child?
P10 Force and motion P10.1 Force and acceleration – Required Practical Activity

P10.2 Weight and terminal velocity

P10.3 Forces and braking

P10.4 Momentum (higher tier only)

P10.5 Forces and elasticity – Required Practical Activity



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:

  • Key word tasks
  • Calculations
  • Recall of facts
  • Description of processes
  • Explanations




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.
