FIRST TERM EXAM 


For the first term exam you must revise and study:
Unit 1 - The Earth in the Universe

It's important to read carefully through the units and it's a good idea to underline the important parts (with a pencil). Try to think about what we have insisted on and repeated in the class.
It's also a good idea to read through the activities we he have done, the exam questions will be similar!

SCIENCE ESO 1 RESIT EXAM - 15th JANUARY 2015

The science E1 resit exam is on the 15th January. You must revise units 1,2,3 and 4. I recommend that you concentrate on the summaries in the text book that appear under the title "What should you know". These will you help you revise the basic concepts to pass.

 For extra knowledge, read the units in the book and the notes in your notebooks. Some of the activities we have done will help you too. You will find the information we have organised in tables and diagrams also useful for revision, for example, "Characteristics of the five kingdoms" or "Differences between animal and plant cells".
Good luck!







MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO!
Depending on your marks you will have to prepare one of the following  for the end of term. 
If you have less than a 7 in your term mark, you must revise the contents again and take the final exam. It's important to concentrate on the "What should you know" as they are a great summary of the unit to base your knowledge on.
