I have placed some work on Show My Homework for all of Year 10. Your child’s next test will be during the week beginning 15th October. This will be a calculator test paper concentrating on Data and Number, which are the topics that your child has been working on since starting the GCSE Maths course at the end of Year 9. To revise for this, I encourage your child to make use of Corbett Maths and the other useful websites as well as their own exercise book. Finally, it is imperative that equipment such as a calculator, pen , pencil, ruler, protractor and a compass are brought by your child to this test, and where practicable, every Maths lesson.
It would be greatly appreciated if you could encourage revision at home for this and revision in general throughout the year, as this will help their overall progress for GCSE Maths at the end of Year 11. I will be contacting you regularly throughout the year when key assessment points are coming up and will list websites that are the most useful for revision. With regards to this, one of the best websites that your child can access is https://corbettmaths.com/ This is used in school a lot as well as the Mymaths site that your child is already used to.
If your would like your child to have a revision guide or revision Maths Watch disc then these will be live on ParentPay over the next couple of weeks.
Many thanks for your continued support
