Main Lesson – Class 8a

Work for week commencing 20th April 2020

Main Lesson – Chemistry

Dear Class 8a

The Main Lesson will be split into different parts.  

One part is 5 mins on reciting poetry, mindfulness or speech, then about 15 mins on maths practice and 15mins on English practice, you can then spend another 1 hour and 30 mins on Main Lesson ‘content’  which includes doing experiments, watching video clips, writing and drawing. 

Your work will be found by the link to the Class 8a ‘Team’ sent to you on your class email. Please check this out. If you have not got your password then you will need to get your parent to email  me and I will try to sort it out. Otherwise try the instructions below.*

Teams is a bit like Facebook – you will be able to ask me questions and speak to each other about school work. I will put work with files, videos and assignments for you to do on the site and you will be able to send work in for me to see.

I will be available to answer your questions directly from 9am until 11am on normal school days. After that I will answer by the next school day. 

Good Luck, Mr Purdy
