Reading Plus

 

The Bridge School uses Reading Plus to help students become better readers. Reading Plus is a web-based program that helps students develop the skills they need to be confident readers and independent learners. Through regular Reading Plus practice, students will begin to read faster and with better understanding.

 

Students can complete Reading Plus assignments on a computer or tablet. Assignments in each program can be completed in any order, but SeeReader lessons are the most important. Weekly assignments reset every Sunday night at 11:59 pm, so students can work on completing assignments over the weekend.

 

Students can access Reading Plus by visiting www.readingplus.com

BIOLOGY GCSE

BBC Bitesize

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize

 

Click on Secondary / England GCSE / Biology (Single Science) / AQA / Go to Biology (Single Science) – AQA

Year 11 should revise all topics but also they have not yet covered the topic on Ecology, so also pay attention to that.

Year 10 should revise Cell biology, Organisation, Infection and response (wider public might appreciate this topic right now), and start to look at Bioenergetics

There is also a BBC Bitesize app for iPhone and Android which is really good.
