Dear Students,

We hope you have been enjoying the sunny weather and continuing to adjust to life during the lockdown. If you still have work to catch up from weeks 1-7 and/or you still need some help with some areas – please get in touch so we can see how we can help.

We would like you to complete the online survey for us so we can see where students may have gaps. Week 8 work will start today also and you will start to notice that staff are putting audio commentary on some of the set work to help you understand what the key points. There may also be links to some websites with online tutorials such as the Oak National Academy or GCSE POD.

As well as being able to email teachers or contact them for help on TEAMS we will also be sending you a timetable in the next few days with slots during the week where staff will be available to help and to answer any questions you may have.

We will also be giving you a phone call again soon – but please get in touch beforehand if you need help.

Stay safe and do your best to keep a structure to your days.

Reading
Don’t forget, you can always fill in time with a good reading book. We have an extensive Recommended Reading List on the website, all grouped by age.

Exercise
If you are going to be in isolation in your home for a period of time it is important to keep active as much as possible to keep those muscles moving.  Our PE Dept has a couple of links on their Facebook page, however, there are loads of videos of Just Dance and Exercise Routine videos on Youtube which can be a fun aid to keep moving.
