Welcome to S6
This year staff are: Miss Cant, Mr Grey, Miss Emblem and Mrs Brady.
In S6 we are a mix of Year 10 and Year 11 pupils. We will be looking at Employability in depth this year and improving skills that can be transferred from Curriculum lessons to life outside school.
We will also be working towards Functional Skills Entry Levels and additional AQA Unit Awards to send pupils to Sixth Form with the best Qualifications they can achieve. After half term I will be setting homework to consolidate and build on ideas learnt in class.
Until then, students can log on to many different websites to practise skills already learnt. These include…
Mathletics - A maths website with interactive activities and a world-wide calculation challenge. New activities are set based on what area the pupils are focussing on in mathematics and these will automatically load up so that they are completed before accessing other areas of the website. Account login details can be taken home by pupils.
10ticks - 10ticks is a fun and engaging way to practise times tables and corresponding division facts, compete against pupils in class and around the world, as well as taking part in a variety of activities and games. Account login details can be taken home by pupils.
Espresso - Something we have just this year got up and running. Details about this will be shared on here once it has started to be used across the school.
IDL - A reading, writing and typing site with activities given based on the level of work. Account login details can be taken home by pupils.
Top Marks - Various Maths games particularly for timetables practice, telling the time and money.
BBC Bitesize - Contains information about lots of subjects but will prove very useful for Science revision.
