Y7 - Learning from Home
The following work is designed for students to complete over the next two weeks. Please check back here for further work if the school has not re-opened after the Easter break.
Some lessons will require handouts from our Padlet. To access our padlet, please go to: https://padlet.com/nicholas_holmes1/j42klugq5zlo.
English: See padlet for non-fiction writing tasks to complete and email to your teachers
You should do one task for each lesson you would have in English. More resources for non-fiction reading & writing will be available shortly.
Maths: Students to complete tasks assigned to them by their class teacher
https://hegartymaths.com/ This platform also provides video links and tutorials to help explain questions and support their learning, as well as instantly marking. Students are able to attempt questions more than once if they need to.
Staff will be able to see the progress on tasks and respond online to individual students. Any issues please email their teacher regarding logins etc.
Science: https://docs.google.com/file/d/1EcSAZlZZX0L_aXPoYcRBQla2OOH7V9Ce/edit?filetype=mspresentation Find the unit you are studying of more recently studied and complete the tasks.
History: Students need to create a presentation on a military leader of their choice to present back to the class when we return to school. The following questions should be answered in their presentations: What was their youth like? What did they achieve as a military leader (Who did they battle? When? Where? Why?). Why are they a great military leader? Ideally, students will create these on PowerPoint and will email them to their teacher. However, if this is not available, it can be done so as a handout and will be photocopied by the teacher on the day.
Geography: You are tasked with producing an information booklet on how people can protect themselves from earthquakes in rich and poor parts of the world.
Step 1 – Read through the PDF document titled ‘Earthquake Resistant Design’.
Step 2 – Create 2 sections in your information booklet. One which explains how people protect themselves from earthquakes in rich parts of the world and another section which explains how people can protect themselves from earthquakes in poorer parts of the world. This will involve clear paragraphs and labelled diagrams.
Step 3 – Select a country from the choices between Japan and Nepal. Design your own earthquake proof home design. You will need to draw a labelled plan to show the features of your earthquake proof design. You will also need to justify why your plan is appropriate for that country’s level of wealth and how it will reduce the risk of injury and death during an earthquake.
Your work should be presented as a handwritten booklet (unless you use a laptop for assessments – in which case please word process your work).
There are resources also attached to the Padlet to act as a starting point for your research. This should not be the only research that is carried out…
Please bring your completed booklet into school upon return.

Philosophy and Ethics: Students should create an information booklet on Islam. Key areas that need to be covered are:
When and how as Islam founded?
What is the Islam’s holy book and how is it linked to Judaism and Christianity?
How does their faith affect Muslims’ lives (e.g. what national holidays do they celebrate, how many times a day do they pray, what are they expected to do at least once in their lifetime?).
What are the different interpretations of Islam?
Lastly, which countries in the world are Islamic?
French: You are tasked with designing your “dream school” and describing it in French. For this project, you need to create:
An ideal school uniform (drawn on A4 and labelled in French)
A plan of the school building (drawn on A4 and labelled in French)
An ideal timetable (all written in French)
An ideal canteen menu for the week (all written in French)
To help you, please use the following websites:
www.wordreference.com to look up vocabulary
www.quizlet.com and look up “mon collège”
www.duolingo.com (use this everyday to improve your French!)
www.memrise.com (use this everyday to improve your French!)
For more information and additional work, please contact Miss Madurga at firstname.lastname@example.org who has prepared an additional work-at-home booklet which is uploaded onto padlet.
Spanish: Students do not yet learn Spanish yet but, if they feel curious, they could start learning the basics using www.duolingo.com ready for September!
First task: Using one of the household items you have at home:
Choose the most interesting shaped object and draw out on your paper. Add Keith Haring imagery/patterns to this- filling up the shape in Haring’s style. Add colour to your design- limit yourself to primary and secondary colours. Both sides could have different patterns - your background can be filled with patterns etc.
You can use colouring pencils or felt tips for colour.
Project 1- Art and Design - Craig Redman. Please log on to Padlet. The PDF file attached details the next Art and Design Project. This project should be completed over the course of 6 weeks. Look through the tasks as a whole, this way you have an idea of what is required as an outcome. Work through the tasks in order and look at the visual examples provided.
We would expect that you complete 1 hour and 50 mins of Art and Design work at home each week. This is the same amount
We are contactable via email should you have any questions as you move through this project.
You can take photos of your artwork and attach these, if you would like feedback on your work.
Please complete tasks in your sketchbook, we appreciate that not all students will have taken their books home. If you do not have your sketchbook, please can you complete work on A4 paper. You should email your teacher in the first instance. Our email addresses are as follows:
(7D please direct your emails to Mrs C- she will reply on her working days Thurs/Fri )
Music: Watch episodes of ‘The Mozart Band’: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLL7dcgwYKsm0diDe04UG4TyPRm5p8IS8_
Research about the composers in the band: Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin and Verdi. Then create fact files for every episode including information about their pieces.
IT: Follow this link.
You will need to download the work which contains a PowerPoint which will guide you through the learning, 8 PDFs and a folder with some Python code in. You will also need to download Python IDLE onto your computer - this is free and totally safe to download and can be found here for Macs and here for Windows PCs
Play the PowerPoint as a slide show and complete activities as they come up. In areas where it says you should discuss, etc, please write these down in a Word document which you keep saved safely and with a sensible name.
Any problems - send me an email on email@example.com
PE: All work and information is on google classroom - use your school email to join using the class code below. Here you can submit work and your teachers can grade it for you online. Once you log onto google classroom go onto the classwork sections, then click on classwork and select your year group. This is where your year groups work is set.
Class Code: 4s5evc7
WEEK 1: This project applies to all core PE students.
Students select either Project 1 (The Physical Body) or Project 2 (Sport in Society). There are three sections to each project. Elements of this will need additional research. These can be produced in whatever way the student would prefer either as a presentation, word document, mind map, paper and/or story board. Printed sheets are in the PE Office if students do not have access to IT.
