For those students in Years 7 and 10 who were sent home on Monday 7 September to self-isolate, school will be setting/providing work to complete at home until they can return to school.
Year 10s will have their work set for them on Google Classroom, just in the same way we did during lockdown before the Summer break. Students are expected to follow their normal timetable and complete all of the work set for them.
Year 7 students, please complete the following work for English, Maths and Science over the time you are in isolation. You can also start working on your Year 7 Homework Project whilst you are not in school.
English – please complete all the work on Malala below:
Missed Opportunities Extract
Malala looking at language
Malala Building Blocks
Malala Yousafzai Extract
Malala Acceptance Speech Nobel Lecture

What effect was Malala hoping to create?
Maths – please visit the website Maths Workout. Students should look at the ‘number’ section and look at the following areas in particular. There is a range of abilities in there so students can work to their own level.

Year 7 Homework Project – the children have already been issued with the details for this homework project. For the whole of this first half-term, until October, our Year 7 cohort are asked to choose a subject of their choice and produce a display and resources based on this. Choose something that you’re interested in – it could be your hobby, a sporting talent you have or something that you really feel passionate about. For example, in past years our students have produced a mix of models, displays, presentations, booklets, posters and more which they then present to their peers and staff.
We have now set up Google Classroom for all of you to use at home for all your subjects. Your teachers will now start sending and setting your work through Google Classroom and all your work will be sent through to you this way rather than by email.
It has several benefits for you:
- You only have to look in one place for your work
- You can communicate directly with each of your teachers
- Your teacher can mark and return the work you complete with help and advice
- Your teacher can share resources, set up quizzes and tasks for you
- It gives you access to Google’s versions of Word (Google Docs), Powerpoint (Google Slides) and Excel (Google Sheets)…all for free!
What you need to do:
- Your username for Google Classroom will be your normal school email address
- Login to Google Classroom at: https://classroom.google.com/
- Accept the invites from your teachers to join your lessons
- Look in the ‘Classwork’ section on Google Classroom which will show you any work you have been set
Here is a short video that shows you the basics of how to log in, join classes and see what work you have been given.
If you have any issues with your login then please let us know and we will get you the help you need.
Also, here’s a brilliant step-by-step video from Ms Torkington to help you log on to Google Classroom, get started with accessing the lessons and tasks set for you and show you how to submit your completed work:
