Year 8 Options - Launch Lessons

Dear Year 8

Normally in June/July you would have had 2 or 3 launch lessons to get you started on your new GCSE options ready for September.

Due to the current circumstances we felt that, as a school, we would still like you have to some input from your new courses. Teachers have been working hard and put together work similar to what you would have experienced in school.

Below are introductions, videos, power points, tasks etc. for you to work through ready for September. It will give you a taste of what is to come and for some subjects set you work to bring in with you when we return.

You are to just do the 4 options that you have chosen. By all means look at the others but don’t feel you have to do everything on here!

Any questions please contact the staff member of the subjects involved or either of us.

Best wishes
Mrs Morgan and Miss Keen
