Year 9 Resources
Supporting home learning during Covid-19 school closure
* Year 9 working from home Thursday 22nd & Friday 23rd October*
Please find below details about core subject work for year 9 during our temporary rota this week.
Students should be able to access Google Classroom for classwork and homework and will have been shown how to do this in IT lessons.
There is a parent guide to Google Classroom at the bottom of this page: https://longbenton.org.uk/parents/covid-information-guidance-support
Students should only complete work for the lessons they would have on the two days they are not in school.
If your child has any issues with accessing this work from home below are details of the work they should be completing for English, maths and science.

Fractions, Decimals and Percentages
Please complete the following work when you are at home on Thursday and Friday. Email it to your English teacher or upload it to this Google Classroom.
1. Make a list or mind-map of characters from books, TV or films who have challenging childhoods; you can start with Oliver Twist!
2. Make a list of things which Oliver and the other characters from your list have in common, eg. an adult bullies them or they experience a stroke of good luck which helps them escape their bad situation.
3. Create your own character who experiences a bad childhood. Mind map ideas first. When you have settled on one, draw your character and label the picture and/or write a description of them.
Use these questions to help you get started:
- What will they look like and wear?
- Who are they? Be creative! They could be a wizard like Harry Potter or a poor orphan in a Victorian workhouse like Oliver, for example.
- What time period is your character living in?
- Where do they live?
- What’s bad about their childhood and how are they treated?
- What is positive in their life? Does something good happen to them?
- What will happen in the story where they are the main character?
Email your English teacher if you have any questions about the work.
Students will be studying a unit of work on Further Physics, Genes and Evolution or Types of Reaction and should do the lesson that they are currently working on.

BBC Bitesize / Oak Academy
There are also two online sources of content launching for the summer term (from Monday 20 April) - BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy. Details of all of these and how to access them are below.
BBC Bitesize https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize
From 20 April, you’ll be able to access regular daily lessons in English and Maths, as well as other core subjects, in an expanded version of the BBC Bitesize website and also on special programmes broadcast on BBC iPlayer and BBC Red Button https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize
BBC iPlayer and the Red Button service will host Bitesize Daily. These are six different 20 minute shows, each designed to target a specific age group, from ages five to 14, and for pupils throughout the UK. Experts and teachers will be involved, covering what should be learned that day for the different year groups and key stages. Maths, Science and English will be covered in dedicated programmes, and other subjects such as History, Geography, Music and Art will also be covered.
In addition, BBC Sounds is also launching separate podcasts to support everyone learning at home. The daily shows, each around 10 minutes long, will link with content on Bitesize.
Oak Academy https://www.thenational.academy
To support the work of schools in delivering remote education, the Oak National Academy is also due to launch on Monday 20 April. This brand-new enterprise has been created by 40 teachers from some of the leading schools across England, backed by government grant funding. It will provide 180 video lessons each week, across a broad range of subjects from maths to art to languages, for every year group from Reception through to Year 10.
*NEW* Check out our new Maths Problem Solving Booklet - scroll down to the bottom of the page to access in documents. Had enough of working on My Maths? Would you rather get out some pen and paper and investigate some maths problems? Then this booklet is for you!
Please note: at present we are not asking KS3 students to submit work through Google classrooms and there is not a code which students need. We will be updating these pages next week (w/b 30th March) with more details about how to share work with teachers for feedback.
