A good grasp of animal and plant cells is key to progressing in a student's Biology education. 

In this class we will introduce organelles of the plant cells and their functions.  Then students will have a chance to compare and contrast the structure of a plant cell to an animal cell. 

Finally, students will tackle a GCSE style question which will allow you to understand exactly what the question is asking and how to answer it correctly to gain the maximum marks.

Applying the knowledge to past exam papers allows students to recognise if they have fully understood the topic or need to focus more time on it ahead of exam or teacher assessments.
