Work for Year 9 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.


Year 9 Maths worksheet


Complete the following non-fiction writing task:

A recent government report has suggested that homework is beneficial to exam performance.  It recommends that students are set at least 4 hours homework per week from the age of 9 until 16. 

Write a newspaper article for a school newspaper where you explain your point of view about homework.


There are worksheets attached to the website for you to work through. 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!!

  • Construct and solve equations and inequalities (unknowns on both sides)


As part of confidence week, students could design a drill for their favourite activity recapping teaching points and technique, the best drills will be selected and commendations will be given.
