Big revision guide – part 3

mock-exam-sign

All your revision key word lists in one place for every topic are attached. Please note there is no way I can cover every single word you need to know for the exam here. The list is not exhaustive. Also I have tried to avoid duplication so some words will be key for more than one topic but only appear in one list.

the secret with key words is not just to know what they mean but to be able to successfully use them in an exam answer. so also practice using them by writing out full sentecnes with key words in or by going on to exam papers and finding questions you can use them in.

The link for them are hereKey words 3.4 desertificationKey words 3.3 waterKey words 3.1 & 3.2 ecosystemsKey words 2.4 Climate changeKey words 2.3 Weather and ClimateKey words 2.2 rivers and river managmentKey words 2.1 coasts and coastal managmentKey words 1.3 glob and devtKey words 1.2 urban rural UKKey words 1.1 global cities

Big revision guide – part 2

mock-exam-sign

All your revision personal learning checklists (PLCs) in one place for every topic are attached. These break each topic down into small questions that help you realise what you know and what you don’t know. They don’t provide such an overall linked up way of revising as the skeleton cards (which you can find here) but they do give you the chance to revise detailed manner and see what you need to do first by pointing out gaps in your knowledge.

Personally i would start by using these to check what I think I know and think i dont know, then use the skelton cards and then come back again when id finshed the topic use the PLC once more.

Big revision guide – part 1

The link below gives you a breakdown of each topic in the GCSE you need to revise. All your revision skeleton revision guides in one place for every topic are attached. These break each topic down into 4-6 questions. They aren’t as detailed as a PLC (which you can find here) but give you the chance to revise in a more joined up and linked together way by seeing the work in larger chunks. I advie using them by taking each question or chunk one at a time and revising that and then testing yourself on what you have learnt. Or get someone else to test you; I know your parents or carers would love to assist you if you asked.

The effects of leisure on a location and how people manage it

Green-Traveller-3This is what the syllabus asks you to know How urban and rural areas are used for leisure.

  • Advantages and disadvantages of leisure use for both local residents and leisure users.
  • The impacts of increasing leisure use on rural honeypots.
  • Positive and negative impacts of major sporting events on localities.
  • Study of one location where leisure use is managed and the effectiveness of the
    management strategy.

 

We have studied Lyndhurst in the New Forest as a honeypot site and the Rugby world Cup as a sports event (we also looked at the Glastonbury festival which is excellent on managing the impacts in a sustainable way.)

The information on Lyndhurst is here  lyndhurst information and here  lyndhurst new forest honeypot . The Rugby world cup was straight from the text book

The homework you were asked to do on Glastonbury is here. Glastonbury Festival homework

Use your notes and work in your exercise books as well. Break down the ideas into

1/ advantages and disadvantages of the leisure activities (ie their impacts) and you could also look at whether these are social, environmental and/or physical.

2/ How people have managed these issues. what strategies have they used to improve the situation?

Rural and Urban UK – Skeleton revision cards & key word lists

IMG_3066

Here is another set of revision resources. For each of the topics there will be a skeleton revision card and a key word list. The idea is that by using them both you will have revised the whole topic. You could work out all the key words first and then use them to help you answer the questions on the skeleton cards or you could start with the cards and work out the key words as you go along. Be aware that summing up each topic with just 4-8 questions means that you will need to spend a lot of time on each one to cover the whole topic properly.

Key words 1.2 urban rural UK

I would really appreciate your feedback on what you like and would like altered and improved. Thank you.
