Working at Home
Use these resources to continue your learning at home.
If necessary, use the curriculum maps to remind yourself of what we would be learning if we were in school - HERE
Scroll down to the Assignment document for your year. You can find any Resources referred to in the All Resources section below this. There are also books related to many of your courses (see below).
If you are not sure where to start, follow your usual school timetable. For example, if you have maths first thing on a Monday then start with maths and then move on to the next lesson you would have on a Monday, and so on.
This work is intended to last a minimum of two weeks and, in many cases, substantially longer. It will be updated on an ongoing basis.
If you complete the work set
- Use this time to self-quiz material you’ve been taught already so it gets stuck in your long term memory. If you can’t remember how to do this, our video is at the bottom of this page. You should have knowledge organisers for many of your subjects printed out in your books. But if you can’t find them, knowledge organisers for each subject are in the All Resources section.
- Read up about the subjects using articles on Britannica. Instructions below.
- If you still want additional work, contact your teacher.
You can use Microsoft Teams to communicate with your teacher if you want further guidance or feedback on your work. Here is a guide on how to use it.
You can also email your teachers from your school email account, as you would normally. Do not use a personal email account as teachers will not respond to this. Please note that teachers will not be responding to emails during school holidays.
