Weekly Learning

Home Study Packs

These are additional resources for those without access to laptops

These are a collection of revision resources, and a lot of 'knowledge organisers'. Knowledge organisers are a way of condensing the really important information onto 1 page, In the booklets on page 2 it gives you some ideas of how to use them. It's a very good idea to get your parents or siblings to test you each day on a topic/s or a page/s. When you feel you have learnt most of the booklet then move on to the next one which will be more challenging, there will be 3 booklets in total for KS3, designed to take between a week to a month for you to learn (depending on what type of learner you are). For KS4 you will see the booklet is huge and so this will be your only book, we would say this represents about 3 months learning as a minimum, remember its not about just reading them as you won't remember a thing, do the daily memorising activities for each section/page suggested on page 2 of all booklets! Keep all the revision material you make and use safe in a folder (ideally in sections ie: Science, Art, PE etc...)

You can pick these up by popping to school reception, you can help yourself from the year group tables, everything has been printed for you...​

READING FOR PLEASURE

If you are struggling to find something that you enjoy reading, try this book of extracts. 

 

There are about 100 extracts for you to choose from and, in the introduction, you will find advice for different ways to access the full novels (some free and some charged) and how to find even more extracts. I especially recommend that you try signing up to your local library, online, and then take advantage of the online library service.

 

You do not have to print it; just download it and read on your preferred device. The contents page contains links to each extract to make it easier to read and navigate.

For year 7-8: All of these books are available to quiz on Accelerated Reader.

 

Enjoy!

Ormiston Rivers Academy are fortunate enough to have access to an amazing array of online resources including that of Hegarty Maths. During this period of home learning, many students will be assigned tasks to complete by their maths teacher on this platform. To help you to support your son/daughter in completing these tasks, we have provided you with an outline of the steps needed to gain access to this resource. Plus an attachment on how to do this also from the company which you can download by clicking here.

Steps

  1. Once on any device which has access to the internet, type www.hegartymaths.com into your internet browser.

  2. Once on the website, you must click on student log in. This can be found on the top right of the webpage in a green box.

  3. Before logging in, please check to make sure the school stated at the top is that of Ormiston Rivers Academy. If not there is an option to change the school.

  4. To log in, your son/daughter will be asked for their first name, last name and date of birth. Once these details have been filled in, please click the next button.

  5. You will then be asked to enter your password. If your son/daughter has not logged into hegarty maths before, then this will be a new password which you can set up on the spot. However, if your son/daughter have already logged in, then they must use the same password as before. Should your son/daughter forget their password, then you can do one of two things;

  6. Hit the reset button on the screen.

  7. Inform your teacher via email or on google classroom that you need a password reset.

  8. Once logged in, you will find a tab which states my tasks. Click on this button to access the tasks which have been assigned by your son/daughter’s maths teacher.

When completing the tasks assigned, students are expected to watch all video clips in full. They should form detailed notes in their exercise books (on paper is fine) which should include key points and worked examples. Following the video clip, students must complete the questions in the quiz, showing all workings in their exercise books. You will instantly be told if the answer you entered is correct. Please tick the question as correct in your book. If you enter an incorrect answer you will have one chance to correct it. Remember, your teacher will see how long you spent doing the quiz and how much of the video you have watched. They can also see how many times you have done the quiz, which questions you got right/wrong and the time spent on each one.

Should you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me on the email below.

Wishing you and your family a safe and happy Easter.

Kindest regards,

Miss Steiger
