All Year 7 students have 6 tasks set for Hegarty Maths on percentages.
Students should watch the video and make notes for each exercise before starting the questions.
The deadline is Tuesday 5th June at 8pm, so if students are having any problems they can email me, contact me through google classroom, come and see me on the Monday 4th June or stay for extended study after school on Monday 4th or Tuesday 5th June.
Last week our C24 students learnt how to ask and tell the time using the 12 hour clock, both analogue and digital. They were given a task sheet for homework, entitled “la hora”, that is due in for submission this week. If anyone has misplaced their sheet or needs assistance to complete this work then please come and speak with me!
All year 7 students have been set some exercises on Hegarty Maths on data handling.
For each exercise they should watch the video first, then attempt the questions.
There are 5 exercises in total on mode, mean, median and range.
The deadline is Tuesday next week at 8pm.
This term we are looking at the efficiency of energy transfers as part of our expedition “Where is away?”. An important part of this is being able to work out and interpret efficiency when expressed as a percentage.
All Year 7 students have been set 3 MyMaths exercises as a baseline to test their knowledge of working out percentages of amounts.
If students are stuck they can:
- Watch the videos linked here: https://corbettmaths.com/2013/02/15/percentages-of-an-amount-calculator/
- Click on the lesson in MyMaths before trying the online homework.
- Email me through google classroom.
The deadline is Monday evening at 8pm.
At the request of some students and parents, here is the schedule for when extended study is usually set by the Year 7 teaching team. Of course, as always more details can be found on google classroom for specific pieces of extended study set each week.
MONDAY: STEAM due in on Friday (Both classes)
TUESDAY: Humanities and Arts due in on Friday. (Skipper only)
WEDNESDAY: Maths practice due in on Monday (Both classes)
THURSDAY: Humanities and Arts due in on Friday. (Admiral only)
WEEKEND: Spellodrome and Times Tables Rockstars due in the following week (Both classes)
In addition students should read their accelerated reader book for 2 hours per week.
C24 Admiral students needs to use their notes in their HUMAN books to revise for an assessment on Monday. The assessment will cover Magna Carta, The Crusades, Richard the Lion heart, Peasants Revolt and the area they became experts in; either Baron, Peasant, Knight or the banquet.
All presentation notes/text coding notes can be found on Google Classroom.
Our students are aware that they will complete an assessment of their knowledge and progress in Spanish next week. They will be asked to write a paragraph about themselves in Spanish, that might include details such as:
- Their name, age and birthday
- Subjects that they like and dislike and reason(s) why
- Food and drink that they consume and/or don’t consume
- Details about family members such as number of brothers and sisters, names and ages of relatives etc.
To help them to prepare for their assessment they were set reading homework on self and family the week before last, they have been provided with a handout to structure their ideas, and they have received a copy of the slides used in sessions and examples of students’ work (taken from their exercise books) that evidence these learning targets. The handout is also included on these slides that have been e-mailed to our students’ school e-mail addresses.
For those students who have requested and now received a Spanish pen-pal, this paragraph could form the basis of their first letter to their Spanish correspondent.
A reminder that students need to earn 1000 points every week on times table rockstars
We will check each week at 8pm on a Friday.
To earn points quickest, students should play in the garage. This week it is 2s and 3s.
To bring down their average time, students should play in the studio.
To have most fun, students should play in the rock arena against their friends, or rock festival where they play against the world!
All Year 7 students have two parts to their extended study:
- Four MyMaths exercises due on Tuesday 23rd Jan at 8pm.
- Two worksheet exercises due on Tuesday 23rd Jan at 9.15am
Students need to complete their working out on the worksheets, and then hand them in on Tuesday. The minimum expectation is that they do the “workout” section. If they are struggling or have not met the deadline, they will be given additional help in expedition support on Thursday after school.
There are more details on google classroom. If students need additional copies, there are links to the worksheets. There are also links to two videos that will help too.
