Year 8 Week 10

Page Last Updated on 17th June 2020 17:13 pm by intranetadmin

All Subjects Summary

Work resources are now located entirely on individual google classrooms, please ensure you have enrolled onto them and you are completing all work assigned.

If any of you are having difficulty completing work via google classroom please take a moment to watch this video:


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. 


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.

Photo Strip 

This has been a task for a few weeks. You should now be completing your work and making sure it is your best piece of work.  

You are going to create a photo strip of your favourite cuddly toy or character from a cartoon.


Task 1 from new worksheet. Decide who you are going to use in your photo strip. In my example on the right, I used my favourite cuddly monkey called CordRoy.


Task 2 – draw out the photo strip. Each rectangle should measure 4x5cm and there should be 4 photographs. Make the frame lines quite thick. Decide on what poses your toy or character is going to have in each frame. You must also decide what media you are going to complete your work in. I used pencil (lightly) to sketch out CordRoy and water colour for the shading. I decided to keep it black and white but you can use colour if you want.


Task 3 – start on your nal photo strip. Take your time… Your character or toy will obviously need to look the same in each frame which is tricky…
