Pupils test themselves on each topic (model of the atom, density, temperature and energy, specific latent heat, specific heat capacity, gas pressure and temperature) by reading the information, folding the page over, then answering questions based on what they have read.

The final column of the page gives exam style questions for pupils to answer so is more challenging.

The revision pack is suitable for: • The whole class • EAL students (early stage (with support), advanced stage) • Late arrivals in KS4 • Individual students who need to catch up • Students with SEN may also find it more accessible.
