Work for Year 10 Students
It is extremely regrettable that school has had to be closed for a number of days now. Please take this opportunity to keep on top of your work and remain focused. Your teachers have put together a list of activities for you to work through. Please get as much done as you can. The list will be updated during the day.
Currently we are studying the GCSE Anthology. In preparation for reading ‘Checking out me History’ students with access to the internet can research the following people:
- Dick Whittington
- Toussaint L’Ouverture
- Nanny of the Maroons
- Lord Nelson
- Shaka the great Zulu
- Florence Nightingale
- Mary Seacole
Students should briefly record:
- Who the person was
- What the person is famous for / what they did that was noteworthy
All students, including those who do not have the ability to research the people above, should then read the poem and answer the questions.
Please see attached maths worksheet. Students should not necessarily work through every question but find an appropriate entry point based on their understanding – of course there is no problem with attempting every question!!
Developing algebraic understanding to reason and problem solve. Tasks are split and a really challenging set of questions has been provided for Set 1.
The following activities all match well to previous exam questions and should be completed (even if you don’t get all done today) as part of your revision for your end of year 10 test.
Your exercise books and revision guides will obviously help, if you have taken neither home or haven’t yet bought one then https://www.bbc.com/education/examspecs/z8r997h covers all you need for the AQA specification.
