Blakeney’s Week Ahead Monday 9th November


Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well. If you are self-isolating at home, you can keep up with what we are doing at school by following the daily timetable of work as set out below.

Maths notes: Please note that the powerpoint with our Power Maths lessons for this week (the practice book and text book pages on them), can be obtained by emailing Mrs Nordloh: M.Nordloh@gf.kwestacademy.com. These cannot be put them on the website for copyright reasons. Please also remember that you can login to ‘Tackling Tables’ to practise your times tables. You should be able to find premade flash cards on that website.

Education City notes: If you go to classwork, there are three folders where you can take assessments in Maths, English and Reading. After doing the assessments, Education City will then provide you with revision work that is designed to meet your individual needs. That’s right, by doing the assessments, the activities provided will be tailor made just for you!

Problems with printing? You won’t need to print anything off if you don’t want to. You can do it all by looking at the work on the computer and taking notes in a notebook.

Remember to send a copy of your work to me by the end of the week or daily. Keep in touch and let me know if you have any problems. I look forward to seeing you back at school soon! Take care.

Gina works the diner all day working for her man
She brings home her pay, for love, for love

She says, we’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not

Woah, we’re half way there
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear
Woah, livin’ on a prayer

Tommy’s got his six-string in hock
Now he’s holding in what he used to make it talk
So tough, it’s tough
