Home Learning Support

 Below is the guidance set out by each department to support students with working from home:

Last update: 2020-05-13

English

The work for English this half-term will be as follows:

Y7 – Dystopian Writing

Y8 – Crime and Punishment

Y9 – Creative Writing

Y10- Persuasive Writing

Work for these units will be uploaded on a lesson by lesson basis. The resources can be found on both Microsoft Teams and Show My Homework. Each lesson has an accompanying PowerPoint which clearly explains all tasks. Staff are also available during the school day, via both Teams and Show My Homework, to support with individual issues.

Friday is feedback day! Students are expected to send us at least one example of their work from the week. This can be done as an attachment on both Teams and Show My Homework or can be emailed directly to staff. Including examples of work is vital as it will allow staff to offer feedback and continue to support students in making progress.
