Home Learning

Whilst the school is closed it is important that you maintain a routine and continue with your education. We recommend that you put a daily timetable in place of when you will do the work to help keep a sense of normality and to ensure you get everything done.

Work for home learning will be issued via Show My Homework. 
SMHW also gives the option to ask questions to your child’s teacher about the work being set, to which they can respond. 

For students intending to attend Springwood High School 6th form in September we will post a number of “Summer Tasks” and work for each of the sixth form subjects on the website during the next term. It is important that year 11 students continue to work during the forthcoming months and complete this work.

Below is year group specific information on home learning tasks, projects and resources to help you  to manage your studies whilst learning from home.

Dont forget to keep in touch with your Head of Year and Year Manager, it doesnt have to be about school work, tell them how you have been putting lockdown to good use; it could be to let them know you have taken up a new hobby. run across the world in your back garden, discovered the secret recipe for that southern fried coated chicken we all love, designed a new social media app,  or simply just to talk and to let them know how you are getting on .  So go on get in touch and let them know what you have been up too they would love to hear from you!

Springwood Sixth Form Summer Tasks - Year 12 Applicants

Please complete a summer task for each of the subjects you are studying and hand it to your teacher on the occasion of your first lesson.  Your summer task will be marked and returned to you with feedback before the end of the initial assessment period.
In addition to summer tasks, which are compulsory, departments have set a range of other work which will help you to prepare for your studies at Springwood 6 th Form. While this work is optional, it is well worth spending some time, during this period of national lock-down, developing the knowledge which will lead to success in your
chosen subjects.
If you are still unsure of which subjects to study at Springwood 6 th Form, it would be a good idea to try your hand at the work set by a range of departments. If you enjoy working through these tasks, it is a good indicator that you would enjoy that subject.

Keeping Busy During Isolation 

During isolation and while our students have been adjusting to a new style of learning our head of years and year managers have been keeping in touch with them to see what else they have been doing to keep themselves busy.

Please see below year group Isolation Stories:

Year 7


Grace B:

Grace has been busy with her homework, as you can see from pictures she  has set  up her own school table,  with even the cat getting involved by sitting on her laptop. She has baked cheese scones for her food tech homework and  made her mum a  fruit flan for her Birthday.

Grace and her family  are lucky to live  in the countryside so she has been able to go walking everyday with her family. They also have chickens, so her and her sister have set up a table outside to sell the  fresh eggs and are going to put the money towards a treat for after this is over.

Grace has also been helping her mum, who works in a school , with online  competitions etc. She has created her own riddle competition that she does every week and gets involved in a weekly photo competition.

                              

 

Home Cooking Stars 

We've been receiving lots of photos and videos from Year 7s and 8s, showing  the results of their home cooking. They are building skills and confidence in the kitchen, which is great to see.

Last week we had a cinnamon rolls challenge and they did an amazing job. This week we are doing a calzone challenge and I'm looking forward to seeing how they get on with that! 

Given their enthusiasm, I'm thinking of launching a staff vs students bake off challenge for next term. Watch this space!"

Well Done to all

Ms Thompson 

Lola , 7F2

Lola is coping well with lockdown.

She  has enjoyed doing PE with Joe, The Body Coach, and has managed these every day since school finished, and  has thoroughly enjoyed doing Art club/lessons online with with her form tutor Miss Jay, so big credit to her for doing these! Lola can learn new skills and interact with others, her teacher is lovely and gives them the encouragement needed. 

When she is not taking part in online lessons she has  enjoyed talking to friends and family, on FaceTime, Zoom etc. and as a family  taken part in  weekly Quiz nights interacting with close family and friends. 

Lola is part of the  12th Kings Lynn Scout Group, so has enjoyed zoom chats and sleepovers at home. The Scouts have set fun challenges to complete and they are able to work towards badges from home. Lola completed the 'Scout in the House' challenge and has done her chefs badge! This has been brilliant for her, being able to interact with her scout leaders and friends.

Lola and her family  had a lovely day celebrating the VE Day celebrations, having afternoon tea, and later a BBQ, on the  drive, as the  street took part in a party (obviously social distancing) 

Also during this time Lola has celebrated her 12th birthday, which I know she missed her friends. Luckily lots of FaceTime calls and a special afternoon tea made it more fun!

Supporting our NHS

SHS have been making scrubs for the QE Hospital

Mrs Petch was asked by the QE Hospital, Kings Lynn, if we could support them by making scrubs for the amazing key workers. So here we are doing our bit.

Miss Markwell is keeping a keen eye on things to ensure we are making high quality garments. Our lovely Freya  from year 8 is doing an amazing job. 

 

Year 9 

Accordion content

Year 10 

Mr Hobbs and Ms Craig have been in touch with their year 10 students to see what they have been doing during lockdown, they asked them the following:

What are you doing to make the most of lockdown?

How are you coping?

The students responded with the following:

"AND I REALLY MISS GOING TO SCHOOL!!"

"I’m also working on fully nailing some of the previous content from subjects that I wasn’t sure about. "

"I think we’ve played every board game and done every jigsaw in the house"

"All in all, we are okay, it’s just weird, I’m missing my friends, my extended family and just a routine in general"

"Throughout lockdown I have been taking more time to look at jobs, acting agencies, BRIT school applications. Really just working harder on achieving a future in arts. "

"I have just been trying to keep the same routine, studying the subjects that I would normally have on that day and it seems to be working fine."

"Hi hope you and miss Craig are okay and not going insane like i am." Too late!!

"I miss you and Ms Craig too, are both of you doing okay?"

"I have also been including revision of previously covered topics using interleaving and spaced practice."

"On weekdays, I try to follow the same routine as a normal school day, so I do the five subjects I do on that specific day at the same time. Later I do some exercise and then I have some free time; if need be, I go through some work I did that day or use the revision methods to just clean up everything. This helps me be punctual even though we don't have school and keeps me motivated for the end result."

" i have actually became a lot more independent helping my family out as much as possible getting to try some new hobbies out and reconnected with my family "

"Hi sir hope you are well too, i am keeping well thank you during lockdown i have dicovered that i like riding a bike who knew?!!"

" I’ve managed to keep an active learning routine every week as well and am pretty proud of the work I’m producing just from working by myself"

"Thank you so much for always being incredibly helpful and encouraging it never goes unrecognised and I’m so grateful to have the support that you guys provide, stay safe and stay positive!"

"During the lockdown I am trying to make the most of it by developing skills in my music playing by having video call piano lessons and have been trying to incorporate daily exercise into my day."

"I’ve managed to read a lot more books during this lockdown, for example the Shining by Stephen King"

"I have started doing my revision, i'm doing almost 8 hours a day whilst using the retrieval, interleaving and spaced practice techniques"

"During this lockdown I'm trying my best to focus on my work so I can reach the goals I have set for myself in life and so I can get the job I want"

"i have been focusing on myself and keeping sane. I feel more independent and confident in myself. I am handling my time correctly to suit me"

"I'm coping fine with lockdown, other than the fact I stapled my finger today accidentally, but I'm fine now aha."

"Hello I’m glad I received an email from you long time no talk miss you and miss craig so much we had great days all together with the other students and wish I was in school ."

"It's kind of stressing me out but it's fine, I never thought I'd say this but school is easier to do because it has structure and I actually get up, get ready and go out. "

"Thank you for checking on us all, it is very appreciated. we are always here for you both too!"

"At the start of the lockdown I don’t think I really understood how long we could be in it for so it was quite difficult to find the motivation to do my work. But now I realise that if I really want to make the most of this time then I’m going to have to sit down and do my work as though we were still at school. I decided to create a timetable last week and I’m slowly but surely beginning to adjust to it."

"I am really missing seeing you both and not being at school and in that environment but I am trying to stick to the usual school timetable routine"

"Hello sir, i miss school so much, i can’t work from home anymore, it’s hard to stay motivated but it’s okay, spent all of lockdown wanting to see friends"

"I sir, I'm doing okay at the moment :> I hope that you and all the other teachers are well and I wish the best for you all!"
