MATHS

Below are a number of resources to use while the school is closed. Most are links to pdf documents so you need a device that is able to view these files. The files can be printed or read from the screen and answers written on paper. Other links take you to pages with videos that explain key topics. For years 7-9, some of the resources also need Flash player. If you need paper copies please get in touch.

Mr Smith will also be in touch with a login for the website Eedi where one or two short sets of questions will be set each week. Your answers for these questions will automatically be sent through to school so Mr Smith can check how you are getting on.

Year 11

1. Complete the revision booklets linked below. Choose the best level for you – the aim here is to revise the basics. There is one dated page per day. You don’t have to do it every day, but try to be up to date by the end of each week.

April – Grade 1 /2 Grade 2 /3/4 Grade 4/5/6

2. Complete some past papers. Use this link to download a folder of papers. Make sure you choose the correct level (foundation in most cases, the files have an F in the name) and open the question papers (these have que in the name). The answers are also included (these have msc in the name).

Stuck on something from the revision booklets or past papers? Look up the topic here and find videos to explain how to do it and more practice questions.

JOIN THE MOVEMENT

We’re all now spending a lot more time at home than we might like, which is why staying as physically active as possible is more important than ever.

Join the Movement is a brand-new campaign, funded by The National Lottery, giving you the advice and tools you need to help you do this while the country deals with the coronavirus outbreak.

Official advice is to stay at home, and to only go outside for one form of exercise a day, to shop for basic necessities, if there’s a medical reason and travelling to and from essential work.

This inevitably means all our routines are changing.   Click Here to find lots of fun and creative ideas on how to get active at home, with exclusive offers and workouts from content providers such as Les Mills on Demand, Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) and FiiT.

There’s also the latest advice around getting outside, with tools to help you make the most out of the fresh air during your daily walk, run or cycle.

If you’ve found a great way to keep active online, use the hashtag #StayInWorkOut on social media to share your experience with others. Remember to check government advice if you think you have any symptoms linked to coronavirus.
