The setting of work on Google

Work will be set in accordance with existing LTP and MTLP plans (available on the CUC website), and tasks will be designed to allow students to progress through the learning journey at the same pace as if they were in school, where possible. Naturally, remote learning will require students and teachers to take a different approach to working through content, but tasks should ensure the pace of content coverage is as close as possible to in-school teaching, and ensure students do not fall behind. The nature of tasks set should allow students to learn independently, without the specific support of an adult at home.

Unless there is a good reason not to, work will be set for individual classes. The type of task set will vary between subjects, but examples of appropriate tasks might include:

  • Reading and noting new material from a common subject area textbook or electronic resource.
  • Working through subject-specific presentations or worksheets provided by the subject area.
  • Watching a relevant video resource and making notes on it
  • Completing a listening exercise (e.g. in languages)
  • Written responses to prompt questions, essay plans etc.
  • Completion of practice questions or past papers, particularly for those in examination years.
  • Working through relevant exercises offered by external providers (e.g. Seneca Learning, Hegarty Maths.)

Steam School: Mission to Mars Launch for Year 10 Students

Steam School is a virtual academy for future inventors and entrepreneurs. It hosts 6 missions every year exploring #STEAM4GOOD projects and futuristic technology. Learners can journey through each mission by participating in weekly broadcasts with STEAM experts and choose from 18 different challenges to complete as scientists, engineers, artists, digital makers and entrepreneurs.

We thought this would be a brilliant, rich opportunity for students working from home these next two weeks so have decided to give you the first mission: Mission to Mars.

Individual student logins are being distributed.
