Distance Learning (Key Stage 4)

Here you'll find our Key Stage 4 overview of learning for this half term as well as links to our Key Stage 4 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:
English
We’ll be preparing for year 11 by completing an exam paper together. Don't worry though - we'll be breaking it down into small chunks and showing you exactly how to do each section via a series of short videos. We’ll also continue reading the gory story of Lord Loss.
Maths
Our Foundation and Intermediate Tier learners will be doing work around the probability scale, collecting data and pictograms. Our Higher Tier learners will be studying tree diagrams and probability using Venn diagrams.
Prince's Trust
We’ll be completing a unit of work called Participating in Exercise which will include the health and social benefits of exercise, risks, how to stay safe, local facilities and how to live healthier lifestyle. We’ll also be doing some exercise along the way!
Creative Media
The topics for this half term all contribute to our unit of work on Photography. We will be looking at some well known photographers and their work, creating photo montages and developing practical skills including framing and composition.

KS4 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.
