Revision Grids for A Level OCR A Physics

A brilliant idea designed to support weaker students. Students have to read their textbook/notes to complete a grid of questions in specification order. Progressive structure encourages students to work through a topic logically, helping them grasp the basics before tackling the applied questions.

A godsend for students who find it difficult to absorb information in class and for the less willing. Leads to active learning, identification of key points and the structuring of information.

  • Particularly supports 'hands-on' learners who need to write information down to absorb it
  • An easy-to-set, yet valuable homework
  • Requires minimal preparation and interaction from the teacher - great for cover lessons!
  • Result! Revision notes - with full spec coverage!

Includes key skills for practicals, Maths and How Science Works!

Cross-referenced to approved textbooks for new spec:

  • A Level Physics for OCR A (Oxford, 2015)
  • OCR AS/A Level Physics A (Pearson, 2015)

What do teachers say about this resource? (6273)

Very versatile – use as homework/low stakes quizzing, cover work, revision – so can be used with different groups for different purposes.

Supports the development of greater independence in learners at A-Level.

What do teachers say about this resource? (6272)

Very good, lots of relevant questions. Builds confidence with similar easier style questions. It maps to this part of the specification exactly.

R Clarke, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

I would use this resource in my teaching. I particularly like the logical progressive nature of the resource. It could be used for revision, homework or a stand alone teaching/intervention resource. The section on uncertainty is very good.

Will be of particular benefit to weaker learners, and learners who struggle to organise their thoughts coherently. The resource will encourage the students to separate the specification into specific sub-topics. Content is relevant and specific.

What do teachers say about this resource? (6984)

This is an excellent and versatile resource for teachers to use.

Excellent coverage of the specification and lots of practise for students to engage with.

The coverage of the spec is good and the activities are varied. This gives students a good array of challenge. There is lots of opportunity for extended student practise and this can be used in a number of different ways – cover work, homework, quiz and diagnostic.

What do teachers say about this resource? (6147)

Clear some of the answers are in terms of signposting thinking in terms of breaking down and approaching questions.

Gives good opportunities for practise and should help identify areas of weakness to revisit.

Nice and easy to work through independently – could be set as homework, work to complete for staff absence, revision etc.

So it is a flexible resource.
