Opportunities for Home Learning - regular updates

 

Minster School Home Learning 

Work is being set for students through Show My Homework and by email.

Up until Easter this is on a lesson by lesson basis but will be moving to a more diverse approach after the holiday as follows:

Year Group

Learning

Junior School

Work will continue to be provided to parents by Mr Burns and Mrs Britten.  They can be contacted by email :  r.burns@minster.notts.sch.uk  s.britten@minster.notts.sch.uk

Years 7, 8 and 9

Learning continues in the current model for English, Maths, Science and MFL. Work will be set for individual lessons in line with your child’s existing timetable. A more extended project and activity approach will be used in other areas.

Years 10 and 12

Lessons will continue in order to support students on their exam courses. This will be set via Show my Homework. Students will complete a check point activity approximately every three weeks in each subject. This will inform teachers and students of their understanding of the work.

Staff are working in the background to innovate using technology and broadcast lessons and these will increasingly be incorporated into our provision. We recognise that in some areas access to the internet is not easy and we will endeavour to ensure what we provide will be accessible for as many students as possible.

A number of key resources can be accessed via our school dashboard here:
