The Thomas Hardye School

Sixth Form Summer 2017 Tasks

Year 12 is a very important year which will count towards students’ final grades in Year 13. It is important that students make the best possible start in September. In order to help them achieve this we are setting some tasks to be completed over the summer period.  There are preparation tasks for each subject that should take around 3-4 hours to complete.

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

All documents are PDF unless stated otherwise.

Deadline for Tasks: First lesson in the week commencing 11th September 2017

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.
