At KS3, there will be weekly work downloaded for English, maths, science and humanities.  It is suggested that pupils complete approximately 40 minutes daily of English and maths and 1 hour per week of science and humanities.  Also, half an hour per day reading is recommended.  Some pupils also have Lexia logins to use for their literacy work.  At the start of each week, fresh activities will be uploaded to replace those from the previous week.  Students’ completed work can be emailed to the address below if you wish. Teachers will then respond to emails with feedback.  If you require further assistance or a teacher call back please call reception on 01254 958401 or the provision mobile: 07873 392956.

Calling all home educators,

There is nothing like a little boredom to fuel creative invention!

With that in mind, we would like to present our ‘If you were an engineer, what would you do’ Home Learning Project. Completely free for all children and young people aged 3-19.

We are providing more online interviews with engineers, who will share their work experiences and answer your questions; along with some activities to help get you ‘thinking like an engineer’.

So, how do you get involved?

Firstly, you will need to register, this can be done by clicking the link below.

Register now

Once registered, you will be given access to our online resources, guides and information on the upcoming engineer interviews via our resources area.

Please feel free to share this email with other families! We want everyone to have the opportunity to delve into the fun world of engineering and put their creativity to the test.

This project has been created both for parents/carers/guardians to deliver at home to children and young people in their household; and also, for teachers to deliver to key worker pupils in class or pupils at home. Teachers who are already registered for the Leaders Award competition, please share this with parents/carers/guardians to aid them with home learning.

The deadline for this project is 10th September 2020.

If you do have any queries at all or require more information, please visit our website, sign up to our newsletter, or contact us directly at info@leadersaward.com.
