Within the Maths folder you will find levelled packs ranging from level 3 to level 6 in some instances; and as the level increases so does the challenge. Parents/carers are to select a level and begin at pack 1 in the folder working through from page to page.
For upper school there is a functional skills folder that presents lots of ‘real life’ problems to help embed and stretch prior knowledge; it’s advised that learners attempt 1 of these functional skills challenges a week, and try to complete some pack work daily. To give a different aspect of learning we also have ‘Manga High’ which is an interactive platform offering games and assignments.
In the Science resources you will find a Learning Agenda that the learners can follow and a lesson powerpoint as well as the activity resources.
