Early Elizabethan England 1558 - 1588 and Medicine Through Time 50AD - present: REVISION

These two documents are to support students revision of Paper 1: Medicine in Britain 50AD - present day (with the historic environment) and Paper 2: Early Elizabethan England 1558 - 1588 offered on the Edexcel 9-1 specification. The aim is that students are set a revision activity each day throughout the summer (or any school holiday as it's very easy to adapt) so that they are constantly preparing themselves for the exams. The calendar provides students with days where they can have a break.
