Key Stage 4 (Years 10 & 11)
There are several excellent websites that offer a range of online lessons, assessments and videos for your son/daughter to access whilst they are off school. These websites cover the full curriculum for each subject; therefore, they shouldn’t be left behind.
1. Microsoft Teams
Students have access to Microsoft Teams.
All student’s homework is set through this. These are displayed as ‘Assignments’ within Teams.
Your child should regularly check their class pages to see the work that is being set.
2. Oak National Academy (https://www.thenational.academy/)
The Oak National Academy has been created by teachers. The website has free, high quality videos and resources available for all subjects.
Lessons are an hour-long. They’re delivered by a teacher, with a pre-recorded video as well as quizzes, worksheets and creative activities. It’s all easy to use, there’s no login or password. You can access the lessons on any device.
3. Seneca learning (https://senecalearning.com/en-GB/)
Seneca Learning is a learning platform designed in collaboration with neuroscientists from Oxford, Cambridge and UCL. The online platform is a bit like an interactive textbook or revision guide. It contains summaries, notes, videos and hundreds of practise questions. This means that Seneca combines revision guides, quizzes & videos with scientifically proven learning techniques. In an experiment with more than 1,000 students, those using Seneca scored 2x more marks than those using a revision guide.
The site is free to use and available on all devices. Students do not need a login or password to access the resources.
Key Stage 5 (Years 12 & 13)
Students will be set work on Teams via their class groups.
Assignments set for the students to complete will be visible within their class Teams area. Students will be able to submit their work via Teams and receive feedback once marked.
Seneca learning (see above) also has resources for Key Stage 5 A-level students. Please encourage your son/daughter to use this site in addition to the work set.
