Magpie Number 2 – Home Learning Ideas for KS4

magpie-clipart-cartoon-1This series of blog posts are going to bring you a range of new T&L ideas from a range of different sources.

The demands of the new KS4 specifications and the linear nature of these qualifications made me look for effective home learning tasks for my students. In particular, I was looking for tasks which supported their retention of knowledge and key terms. In my regular scan of Twitter I came across the profile of a Geography HoD called Jenn (@Jennnnnn_x) and these wonderful ideas.

  1. This key term reviewKey Word Focus sheet has a range of ideas for students to remember and use new terminology.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. “Geog your Memory” The title of this task is very Geography centred and is quite detailed for one home learning task but it is one example of how you can get students to revisit past topics/ units. Geog Your Memory

3. Self – testing is a very effective way for students to revise and remember key content. This example shows a template for a Knowledge Test and the expectation is that the students fold over the answers and they re-test themselves over time. Knowledge Test Example
