A breakdown of the distance learning offer
We have been developing a new platform that offers more to you as a student when carrying out distance learning. It is called Office 365 and it allows you to have more personalised lessons from your subjects and gives you access to all of the Microsoft Applications. ENGLISH, MATHS and SCIENCE lessons will be accessed on Microsoft Office. We know you will get lots more from these lessons with many interactive features. It is a new system for us all, so we know we may have some teething problems, but we can work together to get through them. All the information on this new distance learning package can be found using this part of the website. Once we feel confident with using this new system, more subjects will move onto Microsoft Office. Until then, access your other subjects as normal on DODDLE.
As a school, we wanted to highlight which subjects we consider a priority when you are completing distance learning. We have highlighted these priorities for each year group below:
Potential distance learning routines
CHS preferred year group routines
It is recommended that you spend:
- 1 x 45 minutes on English – 4 times a week
- 1 x 45 minutes on Maths – 4 times a week
- 3 x 1 hour on other subjects – 5 times a week
Choose from the range on offer - General Studies, option subjects, facilitating subjects – a lot of you will change the subjects you want to do at College so keep your subjects broad!
- 1 hr a day on Creative activities
This adds up to a maximum of 5 hours a day – that’s all!
- You should also spend at least 1 hour a day doing things that make you happy!
