Hello Year 11! It has been really encouraging seeing lots of you at revision over the last couple of weeks. It is really important that you continue to revise outside of lessons, so that our in class revision can focus on key skills and techniques for the exams. In today’s lesson we looked at the Treaty of Versailles. In particular you need to know:
- Europe in 1918
- Aims and motives of the Big Three
- Terms of the Treaty (GARGLE)
- Reactions and impact on Germany
- Arguments whether it was justified
- Reactions of the victors
- The other treaties

Hello Year 10, your end of unit mock exam is fast approaching. As we discussed in lessons, there is a useful set of notes to help you with your revision of the League of Nations. The notes can be downloaded here. There are a series of suggested activities to help you learn it. There are also podcasts and video clips on this page under ‘why was there no major war in the 1920s?’.
Year 10 have been studying the Wall Street Crash. As part of that we have looked at how people can make money from stocks and shares. In today’s lesson you will look at the effects of the Wall Street Crash. However I also want to give you the chance to see if you can make some money on the stock market. Download this spreadsheet to your documents. It gives you £1000 to spend on the London Stock Exchange. The winner will be the investor who has the most money by the first week back in September. Think about which companies you want to invest in. Remember you want to buy cheap and sell high. Which companies do you think are struggling at the moment but who might be doing well by September.
