Year 13 Easter Revision

Please complete one of each of the main quiz types (i.e. on on each movement of the Haydn and one each on Poulenc and Debussy)

If you have already made some good revision notes this won’t take you too long! Please copy the Topic Threads notes (there is a word document version) and add notes on each of the symphonies that are offered as examples using the development of the symphony notes on alm to help you (Topics A-H). Revise these notes ready to write a timed essay when you get back.

Year 12 Easter Work


  • You need to make notes on Topics B, C, D, F. This means copying the Topic Thread notes and then fleshing them out using the notes on Development of the Symphony on here. I will take this in on our first lesson back.
  • Please complete some quizzes on Moodle (one on each movement of the Haydn please and one Musical Theatre short answer)
  • Please listen to the last movement of the Haydn with the score

On Moodle you will find a Revision Booklet for the material you need to cover for the Internal Exam. You will receive hard copies of this at the beginning of term.
