PS7 Revision
PS7 Geography Revision for Summative Assessment in February

Year 8 Revision
 Year 8 Geography Guidance for Assessment in February

Here is your guidance for the geography assessment in week 7.

You will have been given a hard copy in your lesson on Tuesday 6 February. You have started to read through this and highlight key points. In the same lesson, you were given a set of practice questions to do during morning revision sessions and over the half term.

Ideally, you will complete as many of these as you can over the next couple of weeks; hand in any responses to me at the beginning of week 6 in order for me to mark and return to you before the assessment.

Good luck with your assessment,

Mr Guy

You need to do ALL 4 QUESTIONS from this paper; hand in during your lesson on Saturday 24th February 2018 (so, you have two weeks to complete). Remember, you will only need to do ONE of these structured essay questions in the actual examination.
