Science Vision

All will succeed. Science is full of phenomena, which stretch far and wide beyond the classroom. Teaching and learning at Gloucester Academy will equip our students with the essential skills and capacity to learn in order to deepen our understanding of the changing world around us. Curiosity and intrigue are paramount, with enthusiasm and effort the key to success.

Best Way to Revise Science

  • Use the ANSWER Method. A = Ask questions, N = No cramming, S = Switch between topics, W = Words and visuals, E = Examples, R = Retrieval practice.
  • Use practice papers and mark schemes to see what you can remember and understand.
  • Make keyword glossaries and check that you can remember them by asking someone else to test you or by using flash cards.
  • Create model answers for six-mark questions and then memorise them.
  • Attend revision sessions regularly.
  • Convert diagrams into written explanations and vice versa.
  • Write down as much as you know about a topic and then check it using your revision guide or exercise book.
  • Do a little bit every day to avoid cramming at the end.
  • You will need to memorise a lot of information, so use revision programmes such as Tassomai, Gojimo, and Memrise to check that it’s in your head.
