Summer Project Work - Year 10 into Year 11
The documents found on this page make up the Summer Project Work that students currently in Year 10 and starting Year 11 in September 2017 are expected to complete.
Students should spend no more than 2 hours per subject that they will be studying on the projects.
For example in Science you will find multiple mini topic tests – students are not expected to complete all of these over the Summer but instead spend 2 hours on Biology, 2 hours on Chemistry and 2 hours on Physics respectively and complete as many of the papers that they can in this time . This may mean for some students they complete all of the papers, for others they may only complete half of the papers.
The ‘average student’ studies between 9-10 GCSE subjects at Stowmarket so on average a student will have 18-20 hours of study to complete over the summer. If students spread this out evenly over the 6 week break they would need to do no more 3.33 hours of studying per week and would have significantly more time than that per week to enjoy their Summer break which is also very important!
Students must make sure all of the project work they complete is brought into school on the first week back after the summer holidays. Teachers will then go through the work students have completed either during lessons or provide individual feedback where required.
All of these projects have been created by our subject teams with the specific aim of helping students feel better prepared for the content they will be studying in their final year of GCSE studies.
