Home Learning on Google Classroom

Hi Everyone,

All lessons, resources and video lessons will now be posted on our Google Classroom:

www.classroom.google.com

Your form tutor should have been in touch to give you the login details. You have all been assigned a colour for the classroom you should join, so that you are working at the most appropriate level for you. You will also be able to contact your teachers on there with questions you might have about the work that has been set.

If you have any questions, your form tutor will be able to help, or direct your query to the right person.

Good Luck!

Art Home Learning Year 9 – 27th April 2020

We are going to continue your art studies by developing your understanding of using tone, line and colour. I would like you to draw at least one of the options below using colour pencil or paint. Use a 2B pencil if you have one. If you wish to draw more! Please do. Especially if you are taking up GCSE Art next year. You should be practising as much as you can. Please write two sentences. State one thing you have done well and one thing you could improve upon. Keep all your work somewhere safe so I can give you feedback when you return and we can stick it all in your sketchbooks. You can draw it on a large piece of paper if you prefer. You can also photo the work and send it me via email for more immediate feedback. Challenge yourself! We learn by our mistakes. Don’t give up!

There are two tonal drawings and two tonal paintings. I would like the Year 9s to try and complete one drawing and one painting. Good luck!

We are going to continue to develop your understanding of using tone over the next few weeks and then we are going to move on to other art and design learning tasks/opportunities. If you don’t have a printer, please try and draw out the shapes on a A4 piece of paper and complete the tasks. Use a 2B pencil if you have one. Keep all your work somewhere safe so I can give you feedback when you return and we can stick them in your sketchbooks. You can also photo what you have done and email them back to me for feedback. Challenge yourself! We learn by our mistakes. Don’t give up! Good luck!

You may find this quite tricky.. but give it a go!

If the lettering is too hard.. use the letters on the first sheet to show me your understanding of tone. Use a coloured pencil to add light, medium and dark tones to the letters in your name.

English Home learning Monday 27th Apr

Hello everyone,

This week you have the choice between two different tasks to complete.

The first is our usual home learning comprehension tasks. As always there are 3 options to choose from: Orange is the least challenging, Green is a medium challenge and Blue is the most challenging. The work is on a word document so that you can answer straight onto that. If you want you can email completed work to your teachers for marking.

Orange task Monday 27th

Green task Monday 27th

Blue task Monday 27th

 

The other tasks for this week are in the form of video lessons. You will have been sent a letter on how to access the lessons on Google Classroom. You have each been assigned a colour that matches you individual level and your Form tutors will be in touch with you, with your colour. You can log on with the email address provided in the letter, all the classes have been assigned to that one so you just need to choose the colour group you have been given. Or you can create your own google account and use the password for the colour group.  You will be able to leave comments in the groups to ask teachers for help if you need it.

Once on you will see the videos for your group, these videos last anywhere between 10 to 20 minutes and have parts for you to answer questions and mark your own work. All the lessons available follow on from each other nicely, so they feel a  bit more like school lessons. They have been created by fantastic teachers from around the UK!

 

Give the videos a go when you are able to log on, so that you can see which tasks you prefer. Both the comprehension tasks and the videos will be posted weekly for you.

 

Good luck

Romeo & Juliet at Shakespeare’s Globe

Hi Everyone,

The Globe Theatre in London have made their production of Romeo & Juliet free to view on YouTube until May 3rd.

This is a set GCSE text, which are Year 9s have already studied this year, and would be an excellent opportunity for them to revise this play. The Globe is a replica of an Elizabethan theatre so it is particularly useful to see how it might have been staged in a Shakespeare’s time.
I really would recommend watching this before it expires in May.

Good Luck!
