Thriftwood College's Remote Learning Resources - January 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are placing work for students to complete at home if they are not at College.  The work is labelled to show the general level of each activity

  • Green higher ability
  • Yellow middle ability
  • Pink lower ability

Students are welcome to try activities from any level to challenge themselves, but even when working at their usual level they may well require some support with the work. If you have any questions as to which level students work on, please email me.

Tutors will also be doing class zoom sessions every Friday between 12:10-1.00pm. Tutors who are in College will be zooming the students who are at home so that all students in the tutor group can have a chat. Look out for the zoom link which will be emailed out every week.

There are also good resources/revision activities, in a variety of subjects, on the BBC Bitesize website. As an example, the activities to go for in Maths are the Key Stage 3 and Functional Maths Level 1 and 2.  Some of the Key Stage 2 resources are also excellent for revising their skills and knowledge. There will be daily lessons on the Bitesize website too, students can visit the Primary lessons as well as the Secondary lessons.

Here is the link to the BBC Bitesize website: Home - BBC Bitesize

The Children's Society are also providing some online lessons via Microsoft Teams, please click here to see details of these.

The Oak National Academy Website also have some good resources, for example their Virtual School Library

For those wishing to use a TV for learning -

"BBC TV is to help children keep up with their studies during the latest lockdown by broadcasting lessons on BBC Two and CBBC, as well as online. The BBC will show curriculum-based programmes on TV from Monday 11th January 2021. They will include three hours of primary school programming every weekday on CBBC and at least two hours for secondary pupils on BBC Two."

Students can watch the Primary and/or the Secondary lessons in a range of subjects as they choose.

Joe Wickes will be doing his YouTube fitness sessions again, excellent for physical and mental fitness. We enjoyed Oti Mabuse's dance classes on TouTube at College during the spring 2020 lockdown - have a look!

We would love to see your completed work, please click here to see instructions on how to do this. 

If you need any guidance please contact me on:

Wishing you all a Healthy New Year!

Mary Booker
