Year 10 – Distance Learning Menu – 06-06-20 to 19-06-20

Whilst we are unable to meet together as teachers and students, we are fortunate in that we can use technology to provide a meaningful learning experience to all students.
 
 
Your teachers have been working hard to adapt your learning so that it is suitable for you to access independently, through Microsoft Teams and other learning platforms as described.
 
 
You will find here a ‘Menu’ of the work that has been set by your teachers for the next two weeks coming ahead. You will see the content you need to cover, the activities to complete to make sure you are understanding, and the assessed piece that you will be required to complete and submit to your teachers via Teams. This will be marked and returned to you.
 
These ‘Menus’ will be updated fortnightly with fresh work and more content from different subjects, so remember to check this website regularly.
 
 
We are aware that an on-line lesson will never replace the experience of working with your peers and with your teachers but, whilst we are unable to do so, distance learning will serve as an important intermediary.
 
I hope you will all embrace this with the same enthusiasm and desire for success that you would every day in school.
 
 
Mr Walker,
Deputy Head
