Good ideas for independent study at home include:

  • Read through your class book and look at the comments which have provided advice for improvement on marked work. Now re-do a paragraph or section of work using the comments given to improve.
  • Try exam questions in the attached revision booklets and those in the class book.
  • Read newspaper articles and discuss with parents and friends - what is it about, main ideas/ arguments, how language is used, point of view, how it is presented on the page, etc.
  • Write a letter which has a particular purpose - to persuade, explain something or make an argument
  • Re-read the novel 'Of Mice and Men' and make short notes on key events and quotes in each chapter
  • Re-read the short stories from 'Sunlight in the Grass' and make notes on key events, symbols, structure, characterisation and quotes in each
  • Re-read the poems you studied in Year 10 in your anthology, and make a mind-map of each poem pulling out key message/ ideas, language points and structure points

Computer software

All school computers have Microsoft Office 2010 — Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Publisher. Although helpful to have these programs at home, they are not necessary for pupils completing school work:

  • Works contains word processing and spreadsheet programs, and comes free with many new computers
  • OpenOffice has word processing, spreadsheet and presentation programs, and is available to download free from http://openoffice.org

To make work done in these programs compatible with Microsoft Office, documents should be saved in the corresponding Office formats:

  • .doc or .docx for documents (Word)
  • .ppt or .pptx for presentations (PowerPoint)
  • .xls or .xlsx for spreadsheets (Excel)

An IT room, resource bases and the library are open at lunchtimes for anyone to use the computers to complete work.
