Remote Learning/Homework

Remote learning is an integral part of our curriculum. It enhances learning, improves achievement and develops students' study skills. 

Remote learning is work set to be completed by students outside the timetabled curriculum. It is independent study that is not directly supervised by a teacher and it allows students to become self-regulated, independent learners.  The library is also available for students before and after school to complete their remote learning.

IF A STUDENT IS ABSENT

How can students access their work?

All students at Windsor can log into their Google account to access their Google Classroom.  The subject teachers will share on the Classroom resources any assignments that the student needs to complete if they are well enough to do so.  If the student has any concern regarding the work, they may get in touch with their teacher via the Google Classroom.

Additional resources alongside Google Classroom

Alongside the work uploaded onto Google Classroom, students could work though some of the following educational resources, if they wish to do so:

  • www.senecalearning.com a secondary resource that covers all subjects,
  • Maths: MyMaths; whscircle/ student password; DrFrostMaths; students have their own passwords to access MyMaths and DrFrostMaths,
  • Year 7, 8 and 9 students: all students have knowledge organisers that can be located in their google classroom. They could look through their subjects and self quiz using their KO, for example they could create revision resources (electronic version of Y7 and Y8 KO on website Threshold Curriculum),
  • GCSE revision zone (students type into their Google Drive GCSE revision zone, and all of their subjects are included with past papers, revision summaries and various activities to help them with their exam content),
  • All Key Stages: https://classroom.thenational.academy/ a brilliant range of resources for all subjects,
  • Reading: Through independent reading, students will develop reading fluency and stamina, which result in increased reading rates and thus, help students develop confidence, build vocabulary, and improve writing.
