Letter to years 7 to 10 students
We are in a situation at the moment which is very strange for all of us. I certainly haven’t experienced anything like this in my lifetime and you haven’t either. I want to make sure that you are not worried about your learning and that you have something to do whilst you are not at school.
We have plans in place to make sure that you have work to complete for the coming weeks. Every week we will post work to Google Classroom for English, mathematics and other subjects. Google Classroom can be accessed from any device but if you don’t have anything that you can access your work on, we might be able to help you so please get in touch. This work can also be collected from school in hard copy. We will keep you informed of any changes to this arrangement as time goes on. You might need to refer to your knowledge organisers to complete your work.
We have posted work to Google Classroom which you can do on your own. You might find some pieces of work quite difficult but please don’t worry, just complete the work to the best of your ability. Please make sure that you keep your work safe so that you can bring it into school when we start back again. Your teachers will ask you about your work on your return so that they can fill in any gaps that you might have. They will be working hard behind the scenes planning work for you.
We have created help sheets so that you know how to access your work which can be found here for your own device, or here for a school device. If you have problems with your passwords or accessing your work, you can contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will try our best to sort out any problems so please bear with us until we get things right for you.
I would recommend that you make yourselves a timetable of work for each day so that you have something of a routine. Please also make sure that you do other activities like reading and exercise if you are able to and remember to help your parents and carers around the home.
Thank you for being such brilliant students.
