NOTES

LITERACY SKILLS - Language

Whatever you are writing, be it an essay, your CV or even a novel, you need to

know about the components that make up language.

• Noun

A noun is used to identify a person, place, object or idea.

Common nouns refer to any of these but proper nouns refer to

particular persons, places, objects or ideas.

Our Example: Common nouns Proper nouns

horse, city, railway Red Rum, Manchester, East Coast Line

• Pronoun

Our Example:

• Adjective

Our Example:

• Verb

Our Example:

• Adverb

Our Example:

• Preposition

A pronoun (he, she, it, they, etc.) is used in place of one or more

nouns.

When they visited London, Amy and John were taken on a guided

tour by their uncle.

An adjective modifies a noun or pronoun. It describes size, colour,

how many, what kind, etc.

The ancient tugboat blew its shrill whistle as it hauled the huge

liner out of the narrow harbour.

A verb expresses an action, state or occurrence. The tense of the

verb indicates the time of the action, state or occurrence.

John wrote an essay. (PAST) l walk to school every day.

(PRESENT) I will see you tomorrow. (FUTURE)

An adverb modifies or qualifies a verb, another adverb or an

adjective, and expresses how, when, where or how much.

The women walked slowly along the pavement. (Modifies the verb

‘walked’). James was extremely upset. (Modifies the adjective

‘upset’.) Sarah knew she had acted too hastily. (Modifies the

adverb ‘hastily’.)

A preposition (in, at, beside, over, etc.), expresses a relationship

between a noun or pronoun and another word or phrase.

Our Example: Neil Armstrong set foot on the Moon in 1969.

• Conjunction

Our Example:

• Interjection

Our Example:

Conjunctions join together words or phrases.

John missed the bus because he was late. Dan worked hard on

his homework and achieved high grades.

An interjection is used to express feeling and emotion, pain,

command, admiration, etc. It is usually followed by an exclamation

mark.

Be careful! Ouch! What a wonderful idea!

SD012 01

LITERACY SKILLS - Punctuation

When you write, it is punctuation that helps you to make the meaning clear.

• Full Stop: [.]

Our Example:

Place a full stop at the end of a sentence that is not a

direct question or exclamation.

David walked to the bus stop.

• Comma: [,]

Our Example:

Insert a comma to indicate a natural pause in a sentence

and to separate three or more items in a list or series.

No, I am not going to the park. The shopkeeper placed

sweets, pop, greetings cards and magazines on display.

• Semi-colon: [;]

Our Example:

Use a semi-colon to connect independent clauses in a

compound sentence.

Mary came home late from work; the house was in

darkness.

• Colon: [:]

Our Example:

Place a colon before a list of items and preceding an

explanation or example. (Several have been used on this

page).

I am a keen follower of several sports: soccer, rugby and

cricket.

• Quotation Marks: [“” ]

Our Example:

Use quotation marks to enclose a direct quotation.

“Keep as quiet as you can,” breathed Jim, “and we might

see the otter.”

• Apostrophe: [‘]

Our Example:

Apostrophes are used where letters have been omitted,

or to indicate possession.

I’ll (I shall) come over to your house. Erica isn’t (is not)

here yet. Peter’s (possessive) school bag is still on the

bus and Rob’s (Rob is) looking for it.

SD012 02

• Parenthesis: [()]

Our Example:

Use parenthesis (brackets) to enclose material which

adds explanation to a sentence.

Three colours are always used for traffic lights: red

(stop), amber (caution) and green (go).

SPELLING RULES

You can improve your spelling

It is vital to spell correctly in all your Key Stage 3 subjects, so spend time

trying to improve your spelling. If you have been told that your spelling is

poor, don’t despair; be positive and adopt some of the methods shown below.

Methods to use

Method 1

Method 2

Method 3

Method 4

Rather than trying to memorise a long list of ‘difficult’ words,

make your own list of the words you want to remember.

Write down any words you misspell. To learn each one look at

it carefully, say it out aloud, cover it up, and then write it down

without looking at your original. Check and repeat if necessary.

Learn groups of words with the same combination of letters.

Learn how words are built up,

e.g. dis + appoint + ment = disappointment.

Some spelling rules to learn

Rule 1

example:

Rule 2

example:

Rule 3

example:

Rule 4

example:

Rule 5

example:

Rule 6

example:

‘i’ before ‘e’ except immediately after ‘c’ or when sounded as ‘a’.

Receive-Neighbour

for words ending in more than one consonant do not double the

final consonant when adding a suffix.

Walk-Walked, Prompt-Prompted

for words ending in soft ‘ce’ or ‘ge’ keep the ‘e’ before ‘able’ and

‘ous’.

Advantageous-Noticeable

for verbs ending in ‘ie’ change the ending to ‘y’ before adding

‘ing’.

Die-Dying, Lie-Lying

drop the final ‘e’ before adding a suffix beginning with a vowel.

Race-Racing, Weave-Weaving

keep the final ‘e’ before a suffix beginning with a consonant.

Fierce-Fiercely, Peace-Peaceful

N.B. Unfortunately each rule has a few exceptions.

SD012 03

FIGURES OF SPEECH & POETIC DEVICES

There are literary devices you can employ to enhance the readability of

your work, such as hyperbole, oxymoron, simile, metaphor, alliteration,

onomatopoeia, although you mustn’t fall into the trap of using any of

them too often.

Hyperbole

The use of an exaggerated statement, which is not meant to be

taken literally, but to create an effect.

e.g. Thomas, for the thousandth time, fasten your top button?

I’ve had a million interruptions this afternoon.

Oxymoron

Simile

The use of (apparently) contradictory terms in conjunction with

each other.

e.g. The attack by the lions on the buffalo had a certain savage

beauty.

The Prime Minister’s statement to the House met with a

thunderous silence.

The comparison of one thing with another of a different kind as

an illustration or ornament. Similes normally begin with the words

‘like’ or ‘as’,

e.g. He was tall and lanky, like a giraffe on stilts.

Billy was as busy as a hyperactive bee.

Metaphor

Applying a name or descriptive term or phrase to an object or

action to which it isn’t literally applicable. (A whole story can be a

metaphor for something else!)

e.g. Simon made a glaring error.

The Dauphin ran his cold finger down Justine’s alabaster

cheek.

‘Juliet is the sun’ (Romeo and Juliet).

FIGURES OF SPEECH & POETIC DEVICES

Alliteration

The occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent

or closely connected words. Although much used in poetry, alliteration

can also enhance other forms of writing.

e.g. The owl on wings of silence seeks unwary prey his scions to sustain.

William stole silently across the hall and opened the door to the dark

dungeon.

Onomatopoeia

The formation of a word from the sound associated with an object or

occurrence.

e.g. The bacon sizzled in the pan.

The chain screeched and clanked noisily as the anchor was

withdrawn.

The campfire crackled (onomatopoeia) and sparks blossomed

(metaphor) into the sky, like a Roman candle on the fifth of

November (simile).

Personification

Attributing human feelings and emotions to animals or inanimate objects.

e.g. Jack Frost paints his patterns on the window panes.

England mourns her dead.

“The first rays at morning tiptoed through the meadow.”

Clichés

Over-used phrases - generally widely known - that most people use in

their everyday lives. An example might be ‘it was raining cats and dogs’.

Only use a cliché if nothing else is as effective in saying what you wish to

say.

Euphemism

Using polite language to refer to something unpleasant or embarrassing.

e.g. We had the dog put to sleep. Instead of: We had the dog killed.

He had an upset stomach. Instead of: He had diarrhoea.

PLANNING , DRAFTING & PRESENTING:

WRITTEN WORK

Have you got:

• an introduction?

• a main body?

• a conclusion?

PLAN

Gather your ideas

- write them down

Group your ideas together to

make an outline plan

Use your plan to

produce a draft

Have you written about

what you intend to do?

Does the work need to

be longer or shorter?

DRAFT

Check the draft for spelling,

punctuation and grammar

Mark any words you are unsure of

- use a dictionary to check them

Read what you have written out

work if this is acceptable - ask

your teacher

SD012 12

COURSEWORK

Many exam courses involve coursework in addition to or instead of

examinations. By developing good ‘time management’ skills you will be

successful with your coursework

The Task

• ake sure you understand the coursework task

• If you are unsure check with your teacher

• If you can, try to obtain a copy of the mark scheme

Coursework Deadlines

• Ask for final coursework dates when you start your course

• lan a timetable to work towards them, and stick to it

• ther students may need access to the same resources

(e.g. library books) - allow for this when planning your work

Managing your Time

• rioritise your work carefully. eep a checklist of tasks and

tick them off when they are complete

• ake time to review work returned by your teacher

• Divide lengthy or difficult assignments into short

manageable bits

• Dont leave anything till the last week

Producing your best work

• ry to produce a draft copy of your work

• Check for spelling, punctuation and grammar

• roofread your work thoroughly

SD012 13

REPORT WRITING

Before writing any report you should identify the objective and the referred

conventions of structure and presentation. All reports attempt to communicate

findings for one reason or another, whether to inform decision makers, change public

opinion or maintain a record of development. Whenever you write a report you must

bear in mind why you are writing and who you are writing for. All reports have an

intended reader. Put yourself in their position. What do they need to know?

Always do lots of research and take notes before you begin. Try to use research

cards. A research card is a plain piece of card with one heading at the top. Then you

write all the information you found out about it underneath. This will help you to

organise all your information so that you can find it when you come to write your

report.

Do a draft report before you make the final copy and check carefully for spelling

or grammatical errors.

Make sure your report includes the following:

• Introduction - this first statement should be exciting or thought provoking to catch

the reader’s attention.

• The main body - this part should include all the detail and fact you have discovered.

Remember to make some personal connections in the report if possible, mention

other readings/books or internet sources you have used and remember to quote these

sources. (See how to make a bibliography below;)

• Conclusion - this is the summary of the important facts that you have found out

and you should also mention what you have learned or became interested in as a

result of completing your report.

A bibliography

If you have used the information written by someone else, you need to give details of

the book or website that you used. This can be done in different ways. A very simple

way is to make a list which should be included at the back of your report. You can list

different types of sources together and then list them in alphabetical order based on

the author’s surname.

Books

Author (last name first)

Title (underlined)

City where the book was published and the publisher (this information should be

inside at the front of the book).

NUMBER & DATA HANDLING

Fractions

A fraction is used to express parts making up a whole amount.

equivalent fractions: 2 6 {

to change 3 to its simplest form of 1

Fractions can be rewritten with a common denominator.

A common denominator is a whole number that is a shared

multiple of the denominators of at least two fractions.

Before adding or subtracting fractions with unlike denominators,

the fractions are normally converted into equivalent fractions with the same, or common,

denominator: 2 +

1 =

4 +

3 2 6 6

6 is the common denominator.

numerator 2

denominator 3

Ratios

A ratio is used to show how many times bigger one quantity is than another, by

considering the quotient of the two quantities.

Example: the ratio of £6 to £1.50 can be written as 600:150.

This amount can be simplified (as with fractions) to 4:1.

Ratios written as fractions: 2:3 = 2 7:3 = 7

WORKING WITH NUMBERS

Types of number

Factor - Numbers that divide into a number exactly,

e.g. the factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12.

Whole number - Positive and negative counting numbers including 0,

e.g. -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3, +4, +5......

Integer - Positive and negative whole numbers including 0,

e.g. -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3, +4, +5......

Multiples - In a “times” table, e.g. multiples of 5 are 5, 10, 15, 20......

Square - Multiply a number by itself, e.g. 5 2 is the same as 5 x 5 = 25.

Square root - e.g. √4 = 2 because 2 x 2 = 4.

Prime number - A number with only 2 factors, 1 and the number itself e.g. 3 = 1 x 3.

Rational - A number that can be expressed in the form of a fraction,

number e.g. a and . b are integers (b ≠ c).

b

Rounding off

Rounding is where a number is made into an approximate amount. A number

can be rounded off to the nearest tenth, whole number, ten, hundred, thousand, etc.

e.g. 37 to the nearest number of tens = 40

832 to the nearest hundred = 800

A number that lies half way between tens, hundreds, thousands, etc. is always

rounded up, numbers below this are rounded down.

e.g. 6.5 to the nearest 1 = 7 (rounded up)

748 to the nearest hundred = 700 (rounded down)

Significant figures

A number with many figures may be too large and impractical. Rounding off to

a specific number of significant figures can solve this problem.

Circle the first type of like

terms. Collect them together.

= 3a + 4b - 2a + b - 3c

= 3a - 2a + 4b + b - 3c

Underline the next set of like

terms. Collect them together

= 3a - 2a + 4b + b - 3c

= a + 5b - 3c

Continue and tidy up!

= a + 5b - 3c

e.g. 3 -2 = 1 /3 2 = 1 /9

p 1/n means n √p

e.g. 27 1/3 = 3 √27 = 3

Remember

- common mistake!

a 2 = a x a and 2a = 2 x a

so

a 2 + 2a cannot be simplified

further as a 2 is not LIKE a !!!

Rules of Indices

a x x a y = a x+y

a x ÷ a y = a x-y

THEN WITH THE INDICES!!!

e.g. 6a 2 b x 3ab 3

= 6x3 x a 2 xa x bxb 3

= 18 x a (2+1) x b (1+3)

= 18a 3 b 4

e.g. 6a 2 b x 3ab 3

CO-ORDINATES

Co-ordinates are numbers that define the position of points on a grid. They are written

in pairs, for example (5, 2). The first number in the pair gives the x co-ordinate and shows

how many numbers to go across, whilst the second number in the pair gives the y coordinate

and informs us how many numbers to go up or down.

The grid for writing co-ordinates with positive and negative x and y values has four parts

to it. Each part is known as a quadrant.

NEWTON’S LAW OF MOTION

1st Law:

An object will stay in a state of rest or in

uniform motion unless acted on by an

external force.

2nd Law:

The force acting on a body is directly

proportional to the mass of the body and

its acceleration and is in the direction of

the acceleration.

Force = mass x acceleration

3rd Law:

To every action force, there is an equal and

opposite reaction force.

HEALTHY LIVING & LIFESTYLE

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

To sustain a healthy lifestyle you should aim to do at least one

hour’s physical activity each day. Moderate activity is the equivalent

of brisk walking; you should aim to do anything which is fun or

moves you, such as:

• unning

• alking

• umping

• Dancing

• Swimming

• Cycling

• Standing - even this burns more calories than sitting!

Moving around each day is great for keeping your mind and body in shape. As you

build up your healthier lifestyle bit by bit you will look and feel better, reduce your

risk of developing many diseases, and reduce your stress levels - it’s win/win!

A Few Tips:

• Always choose to walk when you can, rather than using the car/bus/train - why

not get off a few stops earlier to increase your daily activity

• Watch less TV - Studies show that people who watch a lot of TV are less

active and more overweight

• Don’t overdo it - Physical activity should be fun not painful!

FOOD HYGIENE

A healthy balanced diet is important, but make sure the food you buy, prepare or

cook doesn’t make you ill. Below are a few tips to help you:

• ake chilled and froen food home uickly, then put it in your fridge or freeer at

once

• repare and store raw and cooked food separately, and keep raw meat and fish at

the bottom of your fridge

• eep the coldest part of your fridge at .5C get a fridge thermometer to help

you

• Check useby dates and throw away food that is out of date

• eep pets away from food, dishes and worktops

• ash hands thoroughly

• ash worktops and utensils between handling food that is to be

cooked and food that is not

• Do not eat food containing uncooked eggs, and keep eggs in the fridge

• Cook food well and follow the instructions on the pack carefully. If you reheat,

always make sure it is piping hot

• eep hot foods hot and cold foods cold.

SD012 35

HEALTHY LIVING & LIFESTYLE

HEALTHY EATING

• Eat lots of fruit and veg. Aim to eat at least five portions a day

• Base your meals on starchy foods. Starchy foods such as bread, cereals, rice,

pasta and potatoes are a really important part of a healthy diet. try to choose

wholegrain varieties whenever you can

• Cut down on fat, especially saturated (animal) fat, and sugar

• Aim to eat less salt. 75% of the salt we eat comes from processed foods, so

choose products which are low in salt (0.25g salt or less per 100g) whenever

possible, and definitely don’t add salt to your food

• Drink plenty of water. In climates such as ours we need to drink about 1.2 litres

(that’s 6-8 glasses) of water or other fluids a day to stop us getting dehydrated.

Water is best. Natural fruit juice, tea, and semi-skimmed or skimmed milk are also

good fluids to drink.

THE FOOD GROUPS

We all need different types of food to maintain healthy bodies.

CARBOHYDRATES Carbohydrates provide the body with the energy it needs,

potatoes, pasta, rice, bread are examples of food which give us

carbohydrates.

PROTEINS

FATS

FIBRE

MINERALS

VITAMINS

Proteins help the body to grow and repair damage. Proteins are

found in meats, poultry, eggs, beans, soya and dairy products.

Fats, like carbohydrates, give you energy and also help in building

up your body. Dairy products, red meats, some poultry and

some types of fish.

Fibre helps you maintain a healthy digestive system and helps

absorb nutrients.

Cereals, fruit, brown bread and vegetables.

There are minerals in foods such as iron, calcium and magnesium.

All have different roles to play in a healthy diet, for example,

calcium is essential for strong bones and teeth, and iron is good

for the blood. Fresh fruit, vegetables, red meat and poultry.

Vitamins are good for general wellbeing. Dairy products, fresh

fruit and vegetables.

HEALTHY LIVING & LIFESTYLE

TANNING

Beautifully bronzed skin is the ideal look for many of us. Being in the

sun can be good for you but it is important that we enjoy the sun safely.

It is essential that we take precautions to protect ourselves from overexposure to the

sun. Its harmful UV rays can damage our skin often resulting in sunburn, which can

lead to premature skin ageing and skin cancer.

The following steps can help you to stay safe while enjoying the benefits of being

outside:

• Stick to the shade when the sun is strongest between 10am and pm

• Apply a high factor sunscreen regularly at least S 15

• Wear loose clothing, a widebrimmed hat and sunglasses

• Drink plenty of water to avoid overheating

Please remember that sunbeds are not a safe alternative to tanning

outdoors. Like the sun, sunbeds also emit harmful UV rays.

SMOKING

People start smoking for a number of different reasons. Some start this expensive

habit because their friends or family members do it, others because they think it’s

cool. Whatever the reason for starting, once you have, it is difficult to stop!

Smoke contains many harmful substances but the three which are known to cause

most damage are nicotine, tar and carbon monoxide.

Many diseases are caused or worsened by smoking but long-term health problems

are not the only issues associated with it.

Other effects of smoking include:

• Bad skin

• Bad breath

• Smelly hair and clothes

• Reduced sense of taste and sense of smell

• Yellow stained fingers and teeth.

The best way to avoid the problems and issues associated

with smoking is to stay smoke free!

CYBER SMART

With the increase in the popularity and use of the Internet it has quickly become

an essential part of daily life. The Internet is used for emailing, playing games, file

sharing, social networking and much more. While these are all beneficial and exciting

ways of keeping in touch with friends and family, there are always risks involved.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO BEWARE THAT:

• eople might not always be what they seem

• Spam or unk emails may hold viruses that could harm your computer

• What you put online is widely available for others to see

SOME TIPS FOR STAYING SAFE ONLINE:

• Never give out any personal details to anyone you meet whilst on the internet

• Never agree to meet up with anyone you don’t already know

• Never reply to any spam or unk emails that you have received

• Do not accept friend reuests or reply to emails or messages from people you

don’t know

• Do not post or send offensive messages, emails or pictures

• When downloading files make sure they are from a trusted source and only do

so with permission

• Do not share your usernames and passwords

• Stay away from inappropriate websites

• f something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried then

report it immediately to an adult and the website.

GO GREEN

Do your bit to help the world we live in for future

generations. Here are a few tips for eco-living:

1. Reduce Energy Consumption

• Turn lights off when you are not in the room they are not needed

• Don’t leave electrical appliances on standby switch them off at the

wall and unplug to avoid fire hazards

• Only boil the amount of water you actually need in the kettle

2. Save on Heating Bills

• ncrease layers of clothing

• Turn the heating down ust one degree can have a saving on

your bills

• nsulate your home draft ecluders, silver foil behind radiators,

close doors and cover up keyholes for a warmer and

‘greener’ winter

3. Reduce Water Consumption

• Only keep the water turned on when it is needed when you’re

brushing your teeth don’t keep it running all the way through

• Use the lowest water pressure necessary

• eep a ug of water in the fridge, rather than letting it run too cool

4. Composting

A third of the average household bins can be composted - so save

your teabags, veg peelings, food waste, cardboard and garden

waste for something useful.

5. Chemicals

Use ecofriendly and more traditional cleaning products which are

less harsh, such as baking soda and water as a kitchen cleaner

6. Eco-Travel

Use public transport when you can, bike or walk rather than drive,

ROAD SAFETY

When travelling or walking near moving traffic it is essential that you are alert

and moving in a safe way, to reduce the chances of any accidents, or potential

fatalities. Here are a few facts to prove why road safety is key:

• Road traffic accidents cause over 70% of all accidental deaths of children of

school age

• Young people aged between 11 and 16 are more at risk of being killed or

seriously injured as a pedestrian or cyclist in a road accident than other age

groups

• Almost 1 in 5 teenagers report having been involved in a road accident or

“near miss” on their way home from school - but only 4 per cent said that

road safety was their main concern

• Car passengers who travel without wearing a seat belt are twice as likely to

die in a crash as those who do

Here are a few tips on how you can keep safe on the roads:

Flags

The British flag is the Union Flag. It is also known as the Union

Jack, because of the use of the Union Flag on the Jack-staff of

naval vessels.

The flag of England is the banner of St George - the red cross

of a martyr on a white background.

The national flag of Wales is a red dragon on a field of white

and green, the Principality’s traditional colours. It originates

from Merlin’s vision of a white dragon killing a red dragon

which rose again, symbolising the failure of Saxons to conquer

Wales.

The Scottish flag is the cross of St.Andrew, also known as the

Saltire. It is one of the oldest national flags of any country,

dating back to the 12th century.

THE SOLAR SYSTEM

The Solar System

Our solar system is a tiny part of one

of the billions of galaxies that make up

the universe. We are about 28,000 light

years from the centre of our galaxy, the

Milky Way.

The solar system is thought to be

approximately 4,500 million years old.

It is a central sun with nine planets in

orbit around it. Some of the planets

have satellites (for moons) orbiting

around them.
