Year 11, the final aspect of International Relations for you to revise is the collapse of peace in 1939. The handout from the lesson will really help you answer the practice exam questions. However if you are looking to deepen your understanding it would be worth listening to this podcast about appeasement and this one about Hitler’s foreign policy. There are also some useful BBC bitesize videos on this topic, I have put links to them at the bottom of the international relations page.
History revision: Thursday lunch and after-school
RE revision: Monday lunch and after-school
I am also available to provide tutoring at lunchtime or afterschool during the rest of the week. This is particularly useful if a small group of you have missed revision and want to catch up, or feel unsure about something that we have already looked at in lessons.
The second holiday ‘boot camp’ will be taking place from Monday to Thursday of half term.
In today’s lesson we revised the reasons why there was no major war in the 1920s. As part of this you need to consider:
The useful document that I gave out at Easter ‘boot camp’, and again today, can be downloaded here. If you want to practise or repeat the reading race we did in lesson, the questions can be found here. Finally, if you are looking to break up your revision here are the revision games that we played at the end of the lesson.
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
If you are looking to add detail to your notes, or you want to learn a section in a different way then look at some of the podcasts and videos on the International relations page.
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?’.
