Year 8 Week 4

All Subjects Summary

Some Google Classrooms at KS3 have changed to enable teachers to communicate more effectively with students keep an eye out for instructions from teaching staff on existing classrooms

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.

Task 2 from the worksheet found here
dkeaftv Has Computing helped us manage the Coronavirus pandemic? Of course it has, in many diverse ways.

If we didn’t have the Internet and the range of technology we take for granted the current situation would be far, far worse. See the article  “Coronavirus: What if this had happened in 2005?”

Imagine if we didn’t have Zoom and Netflix for example.

Find at least TWO other examples of how Computing has had an impact on the Coronavirus pandemic situation. (For example Artificial Intelligence (AI), Computer Modelling and Fast Internet Broadband.)

Explain for each one

  1. a) What the technology is and how it works
  2. b) How you know it has helped? (What different ways has it had an impact?)
  3. c) What problems might we have if we didn’t have this technology? (To whom, and how?)

Produce the work as a google doc / word doc / or hand write and take a photo?

Then upload to Classroom!
