Year 8 Week 14

All Subjects Summary

Well, here we are at the last week of term and also the year. It’s been a totally unique year for all of us but we are looking forward to having you back in school.

Below you will find a brief summary of all the work that has been set for this week.

You will find that the work shared on here has been done on a subject level not day by day basis, this is partly because each student’s timetable is slightly different. You will also note that there are a variety of different tasks depending on the subject – for example art has extended pieces of work as they would have had in school, this can span across a number of weeks to ensure that the quality of work can remain high rather than rushing it into a ’50min’ time period. 

We are happy for students to organise themselves as best fits them; however we would recommend following their school timetable. This would enable students to be spend a reasonable amount of time to remain focussed on one subject, would allow them to organise themselves on a day to day basis, complete all the work and provide increased variety to the week. 

PLEASE LOOK OUT FOR THE INCREASED NUMBER OF ‘FACE-TO-FACE’ VIRTUAL LESSONS THAT WILL BE COMING FOR STUDENTS IN YEARS 8 AND 9 OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.

There is work for each of the lessons that students would have had at school, however, we would ask both guardians and students to consider wellbeing and although we would want the work to be completed to support their education when we return to school, please take time for other activities such as cooking, mindfulness etc and ensure exercise forms part of your everyday routine (Joe Wicks is leading a 9am workout every morning on the body coach you tube site.)

Under lockdown you may be worried about the amount of time you are spending looking at a screen, but not all screen time is necessarily bad, and right now don’t forget how necessary

screen time is for your education and how useful technology has been to restore some sense of normalcy.

 

The problem arises when there is excess of recreational screen time, so when you are not working try not to be spending too much time watching TV or looking at your phone!

Here are some things you could do instead

 

  • Read a book
  • Visit a friend (maintaining social distance!)
  • Phone a friend or relative
  • Clean your room
  • Take a walk
  • Learn to cook something you’ve never cooked before
  • Paint a picture
  • Go for a bike ride
  • Go exploring
  • Solve a sudoku/crossword
  • Write in a journal 
  • Play a board game
  • Listen to music
  • Hang out with friends/family 

 

Although we feel that this school work is extremely important for all the students we also appreciate that their mental health is so important during these unknown times. We have recently sent an email to all students put together by the Mental Health Ambassadors, reminding students that there is information, advice and guidance on the Chase Care pages and useful numbers for organisations offering vital support such as Kooth.
