All subjects have prepared material to help you get ready to make the most of the courses you have chosen. This work can be found on Firefly for Kings Students; Firefly → Resources → Year Groups and Houses → Sixth Form → Year 11 into Year 12 Summer Work. For external students this was emailed to you. If you have not yet looked at these materials please do as being prepared for next year will have a positive impact.
As the above resources were set a few weeks ago, additional material has been added to this in Firefly → Resources → Year Groups and Houses → Sixth Form → Year 11 into Year 12 Summer Work Part 2. There are reading lists by subject in extra reading folder to further your knowledge and understanding.
|Session 4 ‐ Study Skills 12:00noon onwards (interchangeable with session 3)|
To study effectively developing the skills to engage with materials is crucial. Therefore it is suggested that you work through the study skills activities. These can be found on Firefly → Resources → Houses and Year Groups → Sixth Form → Year 11 into Year 12 Study Skills. There are seven skills to master; organisation, note taking, focus and concentration, avoiding procrastination, memory, papers and essay and exercise.
For external students the resources will be emailed to you for both sessions 3 and 4.
We look forward to welcoming you and working with you on your Kings Sixth journey.
Stay safe. The Sixth Form Team
