Summer Tasks 2018

Year 12 is a vital year which will count towards your final A Level grades in year 13. It is important that you make the best possible start in September. In order to help you achieve this we are setting you some tasks to complete over the summer period. 

There are preparation tasks for each subject that should take around 3-4 hours to complete. If you are unsure what to study in the sixth form then these tasks may also help you decide and you are welcome to complete tasks in any subject you are considering studying. Some students may not finalise what courses to study until GCSE results day, 23rd August 2018 or Sixth Form Induction Day, 3rd September 2018. Therefore, the final deadline for completion of all tasks will be the first lesson in that subject during the week commencing 10th September.

It is vital that each task is completed in full and to the best of your ability. None of the work requires extensive prior knowledge of the new courses but you may learn new things about the course or develop the skills required to make a success of your chosen courses. The tasks will be assessed in a variety of ways, some through peer assessment in class and some will be directly assessed by the teacher.

Please note the CACHE course does not have a summer task.

NOTE TAKING
What are notes?

Notes are a shortened, written version of  a lecture, any written text, your own thoughts and plans on a project or area of study.

Notes are usually just for your own use, although your teachers may sometimes ask for responses 'in note form'.  Good notes comprise the most minimal form of communication necessary as a reminder of a larger topic.

Why should I make notes?

Notes are useful for everything that you need to remember. You can understand a topic better by expressing the main points in your own words and in your own style. Notes are a kind of shorthand. You can compress a vast topic by writing a few brief notes.

Useful layouts for notes

Numbered lists - Use these when there's an order of priority.

Bulleted lists - Use these when all the items have equal significance.

Headings - Write headings that you can elaborate upon later.


Don't copy out long sections. This is not a good use of time.

Do summarise the information in your own words.

Do take a photocopy if you need a long passage for future reference.

Do make brief quotes, but signal this to yourself by putting them in quotation marks. Always make a record of the page on which they occur.


Useful materials for making notes

Paper, Coloured pens and pencils.

Journalists' notebooks (small ring-bound pads) or clipboards for outside use.
