Change to Friday Afternoons – Catch-up, Wellbeing and Enrichment

We have been very impressed with how many students have been attending live lessons and completing work.

Well done to each and every one of you who have attended all of the live lessons, completed your work and handed it in on time. Your teachers have been awarding points on Epraise in recognition of your hard work.  Some of you may have even received a ‘Golden Ticket’ via email as a reward for your excellent work.  Please do keep up being so brilliant!

We are conscious that spending many hours in front of a screen each day can be tough and tiring at times.  As a result, we have decided to make a change.

Friday afternoons – Catch up, Wellbeing and Enrichment session – from 1pm – 3:15pm.

Catching up on incomplete work

During this time, if you have any work which you need to finish, then you can ensure that this is completed and handed in to your teacher.  If you have any questions or need any help, you can contact your teacher on Teams or via email and they will respond to you.

 

Respond to marking – complete your Green Pen Activities

In addition, you will find that your teachers have been marking your work and have returned some of your assignments. There will be Green Pen tasks for you to do – to respond to the marking and make sure that you are making progress. During this catch up time you must also make sure that you complete any Green Pen tasks which have been set by your teacher.

If you are up to date with all of your work and have handed it in, then there are some other activities to do.

 

Wellbeing

If you have not already done so, visit the Wellbeing Site on the Student Portal:

Miss Haycock regularly updates the site with information and activities that you can do to help to encourage positive mental health and wellbeing in these challenging circumstances we find ourselves in at the moment.

 

myON – Reading

We are launching myON on Friday 15th January. This is reading software which is part of Accelerated Reader.  It allows you to read books online, choosing from 5,000 different books.

Here is the link to the myON website: https://www.myon.co.uk/login/

Your L4L teacher will email you with your username and password so that you can log in.  During Friday morning (15th January), you need to log in to myON and complete a survey. Miss Whitehouse will be explaining this in the Assembly on Friday morning.
