Distance Learning (Key Stage 3)

Here you'll find our Key Stage 3 overview of learning for this half term as well as links to our Key Stage 3 teacher blogs and this week's Wellbeing Activities.

SUMMER 2 OVERVIEW

Every Monday morning we set work for our learners to access via Google Classroom - follow our Teacher Blogs to see exactly what we're doing each week. We also provide paper copies upon request.

Our curriculum overview for Summer 2 is below:
Health & Wellbeing
For the remainder of the summer term we will be covering issues surrounding internet safety. We will also be asking students to check out the Wellbeing Activities on our website and to send us photos of your chosen tasks.
Literacy
Between now and the summer holiday your literacy work will have a science focus. We will be looking at sight and light, and sound and hearing.
Numeracy
We will be finishing off our work on measure which will include temperature and time. After that we will recap our learning on fractions, decimals and percentages.
Basic Skills
Each week there will be a literacy and numeracy task which will focus on practising skills that you have already learnt. This will help to embed your knowledge and get you ready for next year!

KS3 TEACHER BLOGS

Our teachers regularly communicate with learners within Google Classroom regarding the work set for their Core Subjects but they also like to keep in touch here with their own micro-blog.

WELLBEING ACTIVITIES

We recognise that sitting in front of a computer for long periods of time can be counter-productive to learning. While we also try to incorporate alternative tasks into our Core Subjects on Google Classroom we also think it's important for young people to engage with a wellbeing curriculum to better support them while distance learning. 

Our Wellbeing Activities are refreshed every Monday morning and aim to encourage our learners to take part in activities and experiences that nurture mindfulness, creativity and physical exercise.
