Note to students
Many of these Super-Curricular activities require you to work online. The links given at the end of each task page will operate in a number of different ways to enable you to practise a range of skills that will support and enhance your opportunities to achieve the very best at GCSE:
- some will take you directly to the material that you will need;
- some will take you to the Home page of a website - you will then need to enter information into the search box to access the correct material;
- some websites operate through a school-based subscription and will require a school login username and password. Check with your class friends or contact your teacher if you are unsure how to get into the site;
- some tasks are research-based and will need you to search the Internet yourself to find the information.
In any of this work, please be aware that the permissions and filters on your home computers are unlikely to be identical to those on the school network, so be patient if the websites do not immediately respond as you might expect. Please open the links using a computer, if at all possible, to get the full benefit of the presentations your teachers have suggested for your research.
Remember always to operate safely on the Internet; applying all that you have learnt about online safety whenever you are working. If you have any concerns at all, remember that the Click CEOP button is at the top of the Home page of this site and will take you directly to the Government's Child Exploitation and Online Protection website.
To support safer online working, we have created a new webpage by collecting together a range of resources for students and their parents/carers, which can be accessed by following this link.
Finally, with so many millions of young people across the country using technology to access their school work, many networks are undoubtedly over-loaded at the moment and may operate more slowly than usual. Be patient! Everyone is doing their very best to support your education at this difficult time.
