5-a-Day: Year 11 Revision

Your 5-A-Day Activate will help you recall key information about your Literature texts and develop your vocabulary.

You can use these slides to get ahead of your Literature revision, or to catch up if you miss any lessons. You’ll get the answers in class, or, if you miss a lesson, from a classmate or teacher. The answers for all slides will be released at the end of Term 1 for ongoing revision.
