Geography:

Edexcel Geography A specification

There are many resources based around learning of new content and revision of past topics. Firefly is the main resource with lots of links based on here. There are numerous revision activities based on the structure of knowledge, understanding and application.

https://chellaston.fireflycloud.net/geography/gcse-years-10-and-11-new-spec

For year 11 the revision pages are vital and pupils should navigate through the pages from the below link to see the wide ranges of resources available. This includes PLC’s, key terms test, revision activities from Revision Guides, past exam papers and markschemes.

https://chellaston.fireflycloud.net/geography/gcse-years-10-and-11-new-spec/revision-and-exams

Revision continues with different apps and websites which can be done on laptop and phones.  Most pupils should already have log ins and have been allocated to specific classes. If not, they should contact their class teacher by e-mail.  Teachers are able to monitor the amount of time students spend of these sites.

Memrise – excellent for learning key terms associated with the course.

https://www.memrise.com/course/1470160/chellaston-geography-edexcel-a/

Seneca – gives course learning materials along with tests to check understanding.

https://app.senecalearning.com/classroom/course/c25820ce-c6f1-436f-b33b-917b620631dc

Quizlet – another great course that students sign up for which is great for revising key terms and also helps to set up flash cards and other revision resources.

https://quizlet.com/jonnyrock/folders/gcse-edexcel-geography/sets

BBC Bitesize GCSE – This now has course specific content with some relevant video links.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/examspecs/zsytxsg

 

Youtube has a wide range of quality videos on specific topics and it is likely that this will increase further in coming months.  You have to be very careful during your search to get the most relevant information.

 

The Edexcel Exam Board also has a youtube channel.
