Today Reading East MP- Rob Wilson came over to The Bulmershe School to host a question and answer session for the two GCSE Citizenship classes.
Each group explained their campaign and asked up to three questions to Rob Wilson who responded with advice, opinion and fact.
Every student was grateful for his time and honesty in his responses.
Students will now transcript the Q&A session and use this as evidence for their controlled assessment portfolio- which is worth 60% of their Year 10 grade.

Revision is a very personal process. Different things apply to different people.
However, I always YOU after YOU have recieved an examination grade…
‘Did YOU get the grade YOU revised for? If so, did YOUR revision methods really work?’
The problem is when YOU think YOU are revising, but in reality YOU are simply re-doing what YOU already know?
Or maybe YOU are re-reading notes and actually putting yourself into a difficult situation by making yourself too familiar with the notes- rather than actually knowing them?
YOU may be familiar with whether YOU are a VISUAL, AUDIO or a KINAESTHETIC learner? (If YOU are unsure CLICK HERE to complete a questionnaire to help YOU determine your learning style! YOU should know!)
Once YOU have figured this out- try out a variety of strategies to help you learn! Not just recap…
Here is a small list I have compiled- if you need more information on any of them- leave a comment and I will get back to YOU.
