Happy New Year! We are pleased to see Pembroke students passionate and engaged in this unusual new academic year. As we adjust to remote learning in this new national lockdown, we want to ensure the education of our students is able to continue as close to normal as possible.
To support students in their learning we will be providing a combination of independent learning tasks and live lessons and check-ins with teachers. The timetabled live lessons have been designed to support students in their remote learning as set through the ‘Home Learning’ area of SharePoint, not as a replacement for this work. Independent tasks will be made available to students through SharePoint, while the live lessons will use Microsoft Teams. Please click the 'Accessing your Home Learning on SharePoint and Teams' link in the menu bar for more information on accessing both systems.
How do I organise my Home Learning?
Home learning is different to learning in school. You will need to plan your time carefully to make sure you are able to complete the work. To help you to organise your Home Learning, please click on the image to download and read through an advice and guidance booklet. This book contains printable resources to create a timetable for your day as well as a handy record for any passwords you will need for online learning resources.
When planning your home learning, a good idea is to create yourself a routine. One idea is to complete a task set by the subjects you have on your timetable each day; so if you have Maths, History, Science, Art and Music on Monday, they would be the focus of your work for that day. We also recommend that you read every day; a comic, a magazine, a chapter or a full book!
Please remember to share your home learning with your teachers.
You should continue to demonstrate an excellent attitude to your learning through any period of self-isolation or local lockdown, by attempting all tasks to a good standard. You will be given a deadline to complete tasks, so please email completed work to your subject teacher each week using your school email account. A list of staff emails can be found in the Student Support area of SharePoint. If it is not possible to email or you have completed tasks in your exercise book, please show your teacher during the live lesson and when you are able to return to school.
