Year 11 Physics – Triple


Curriculum Modules What will my child be learning? What homework will they be set? How do I support my child?
P11 Force and pressure P11.1 Pressure and surfaces

P11.2 Pressure in a liquid

P11.3 Atmospheric pressure

P11.4 Upthrust and floatation

 

 

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

  • 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.
