Work for students during school closure

Work for students during school closure

During this period of school closure, we ask that students try to maintain a routine and follow their school timetable. Each of our lessons lasts for an hour and we have 5 lessons a day. Therefore, we would expect students to complete one hour per subject each day, as per their timetable. This means one hour each for English, maths and science and then one hour each on two other subjects.

Also search for Mr Bruff or Mr Salles on YouTube for online English resources.

 

In addition to this, we also recommend that students complete the following daily activities:

Reading: Spend at least 30 minutes each day reading; this can be a fiction or nonfiction book and include reading the pages on the BBC news website. Many pieces of classic fiction are freely available through Apple Books or other providers.

Spellings: Students should look up the meanings and learn to spell the Thirty Tricky Spellings All Students Should Know and the 101 Key GCSE Spellings. Click on the link below.

Maths: In maths, the times tables are very important and help with understanding of maths. So it is also worth using the time to ensure that all of them are secure up to the 12 times table. (This should be without thinking or using fingers.)

Exercise: Students could attempt some exercise in the home, for example, YouTube has many 20 minute workout routines. Try searching for Joe Wicks, the Body Coach.

 

We believe that maintaining a routine and keeping mentally and physically active will contribute a great deal to supporting our students’ well-being and reduce the impact of the current school closure.

Office 365 & Microsoft Office for Home

To help with home learning, our school’s Microsoft subscription includes a licence for all students to install the full and latest version of Microsoft’s Office desktop suite at home, free of charge.

The Office suite consists of Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneNote, Publisher and Access – and for homes with multiple devices you can install the software on up to 5 personal computers either PC or Mac.
