Blogging Updates!!!

Hello everyone! I have had countless requests about writing blogs in my other subjects and I also need to find a new method for revising in some of my other subjects, therefore, I have decided to start writing them in my other subjects....

What I learnt in History this week.....

What I learnt in Biology this week.....

What I learnt in Chemistry this week.....

Now, these blogs will not be as detailed, or as frequently updated as my Geography blog as trying to run one is time consuming enough - let alone four! It may take me a while to get the going as well as I am not 100% sure how well they will work in my other subjects! Also they will be used as revision blogs, where I will post mainly revision notes, not any interesting research I do beyond the syallbus or necessarily a lesson by lesson post on what I learn. At present, they are not going to be supported by teacher blogs either but, for those of you interested, they may still be of some use.
Essentially though I am hoping they can be used in the same way as this one, and hopefully be as beneficially to fellow students, so as usual, if you want me to write about anything just let me know!

Also, I quick word about my Geography blog...... I am going to try and reduce the scientific content and keep it to a level required to pass the exam. This means that until the summer exams are over, no more of my own research will appear and I will be talking a lot more about humans. This is going to be hard work for me (so bare with me - I am not quite sure how well this one will go!) but I have been given a few polite reminders now that Geography is all about the interactions between people and the environment and so whilst I may find the physical side far more interesting, unless I can relate it back to how it impacts on peoples lives, then I will not pass the summer exam -  and I think it is about time I start listening to my teachers! So sorry to those of you who enjoy reading about the random stuff I write about but for the next 3 months it will have to disappear (don't worry though I have the entire summer holidays to research all the interesting stuff that the exam board are not nice enough to let us learn about - in their defence I suppose it would be bad if we enjoyed A-levels too much!!!). Most people are probably revising already so let me know what you feel would benefit you the most if I wrote about it. Case studies will definetly be appearing before many of you ask!!! I am currently trying to think of some different, more interesting ways, to revise Geography before I write a post on revision like last year - there are some good books and films out there which would be worth reading/watching; reviews are on the way!

After half term, Millie is starting up weekly online workshops on all the different topics, but in the meantime, after popular request, I am going to and use the method to run online discussions on different topics - especially the human geography topics - as discussion is a great and more interactive way to learn and, as we get frequently reminded, for the exam we need to be able to formulate our own opinions (something that takes me a while!). Join in as and when you can, hopefully they will remain educational throughout! The first one starts tonight at 19:30!

Just incase you are interested, I am retaking Unit 4B (topic doesn't look that bad - anything climate related will grab my attention!!!) so information on that, although less researched based stuff, will appear as and when and if these live discussions work out well, I may try and organise a 4B one over the next few weeks.....
I hope the revision is going well - I think the hardest bit is getting started!
