All work to be set via ClassCharts – work set will be based around exercise in your home.
Whilst we are all off school it is very important that we try and stay as active as we can. There may be some of you who cannot leave your house and others who can. Those who are lucky enough to be able to go out please make the most of this. The best work we can set as a PE Department is to go out for a run, walk, cycle. The physical and mental benefits of exercise are highlighted below and it will be more important than ever that we try our best to remain fit and healthy during this period.
As a department we will be providing resources and ideas for you to stay active in your own home. Bravely – Miss Farrar has opened a Youtube channel that she will upload workouts to for you all to try in your house. We will also be sending out specific work/ideas to you via ClassCharts.
Lessons will be set by the designated teacher of that class on ClassCharts, and will include instructions, resources and tasks to complete.
Year 11 have currently finished the GCSE specification and are expected to be revising. In class we have outlined the ‘flight plan’ for this revision so students should be confident with this. Students have been instructed to take their revision folders and materials home in preparation for the school closing. If they do not have these, that is a conscious decision on their part.
Students should know their entry tier- if you are unsure of this, please contact Mr Langan at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
At GCSE, students follow the 21st century science B specification (9-1) from 2019. The specification for the content shown below is available from the following links.
