    I thought it went well too
    Well done !! My leavers assembly is on the 28th June
    Yay, thank you! Good luck for English (that is today, isn't it?)
    It's kinda weird because we're all saying goodbye and everything but we're coming back in for lessons and revision sessions after half term!

    No revision has gone on today! I hope you can forgive me!

    I had my Leavers Assembly today and I got an award!!: Most likely to become the next Albert Einstein...not sure how accurate that is!
    I had a good day, but no tears as we'll all be seeing each other for exams and prom!

    I guess I'm now on 'study leave' - if you can call it that! We still have to come in for lessons, revision sessions and exams! The only time we can go home is if we have a lesson that we have already done the exam for - so for me that is RE and French!

    Is our school being weird or is this what's going on for most people?

    I didn't manage to do any revision yesterday (it was a friend's birthday) but I was back on track for most of today - even though I went out for 2 hours in the afternoon!

    English - Annotated extracts from OMAM, will continue tomorrow
    Maths - Completed past paper
    German - Learnt & tested myself on new vocab
    Chemistry - Explained ion testing & the history of the Periodic Table to my family
    Geography - Looked over spec for skills paper & printed out paper to do this week

    I'm a bit worried I'm going to end up procrastinating for most of this week but let's see how it goes...

    I had a fairly productive day today (I did everything I set out to do at least!)...

    English - Answered questions from workbook & continued with my annotations
    Geography - Did a skills paper, it was a lot harder than I was expecting (having been told by my teacher that 'you don't really need to revise for it') so I will definitely need to put in a bit of work (it was the specimen paper though). I then looked on Bitesize & watched youtube videos on some of the stuff I was confused about
    Maths - Made circle theorems poster & completed questions
    Physics - Started big P2 poster (it's one of my last exams but I thought I'd start now as I think it's the hardest section of them all )
    German - Learnt & tested myself on new vocab

    Hopefully the productivity will continue! At least I'm not getting distracted by the weather...!

    I was gonna do a bit of different subjects today but I ended up doing mainly Physics - it's been a long day!

    Geography - Revised skills further by watching videos & doing quizzes
    Chemistry - Used quizzes to determine what areas I need to look at in detail for revision. I also looked at some prediction videos on youtube - have a look at Primrose Kitten if you're interested...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59_z...zywjmBtmBVvOWd
    Physics - Finished my big poster on the whole of P2 - it took hours!! At least it's finished now! I've (hopefully) attached a picture of it, if you're interested! It might be a bit small!

    Hopefully I'll focus on some different subjects tomorrow - maybe English & Chemistry...

    It's finally June, although the weather doesn't seem to think so! In just over two weeks I will have finished school!! Whoop whoop!

    After a slow start I managed to do quite a bit...

    Physics - Did a P2 past paper and got 54/60! In P2!! I was very pleased to have got into the 50s for Physics (probably like the first time ever!)
    English - Completed response to OMAM question about Curley. Then spent 3 hours going through every past paper - making notes on what extracts/themes/characters came up, annotating my book with ideas from looking at the examiner reports - it took a long time but time well spent, I think!

    Only 2 subjects done but I feel better after doing a lot of English as I was neglecting it a little...
