Year 8 Week 3

All Subjects Summary

Below you will find a brief summary of all the work that has been set for this week.   Please use the links below to go to subject areas which contain summary sheets, These will be updated as the week’s progress.

The links contain files which will have more detail on the work for each subject along with the resources that may be needed. We appreciate not everyone will have printers at home so students should feel free to simply write out the completed work on blank paper and look to have the correct headings for when this is brought into school. We would recommend trying to keep all the work that has been completed in the subject books which students all have or if on pieces of paper all within 1 folder.

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.)

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.

 

We are currently updating this page, apologies if any links break, please check back soon or report the issue via itsupport@chase.worcs.sch.uk

ik5ocpp Look at the Knowledge Organiser which details some of the styles we will be discussing this term.
Look at the sheet titled ‘Queen’ and watch the clip and answer the questions. Listen to Bohemian Rhapsody and answer the questions.  Use the glossary on the sheet to help you. If you have access to a keyboard, guitar or a keyboard app, try to play the four chords detailed in the knowledge organiser. This will not take long but you will need to know these chords very well for the composition task later on in the term.
The Knowledge organiser, questions on the documentary and the listening test can all be found on google classroom under the title and date for the first 2 weeks of the summer term.

 

Answer questions on the document and then hand it in via google classroom.
