Free Online Learning Resources
LPGS is committed to providing continuity of learning and structures to support our young people at this very difficult time. Whether they are studying at home now, or in the coming weeks we have a range of learning that students can access:
- Staff are posting lesson resources from each lesson to the whole class
- Students are being provided with hard copy learning resources to use in and out of class in the event of staff absence / school closure
- Live teaching is taking place using Microsoft Teams (or similar), where appropriate
- Recommended resources for self-study are listed below. These include digital resources and how to find out passwords, if students do not already have them
We ask that all students log on at 8.30 in the morning and read the morning briefing. Each one will be found here. They should also check what work has been set and whether there are any live lessons to ‘attend’. and see what work has been set.
They should try to stick to their normal timetable of learning as much as is possible.
Where practical lessons cannot be fulfilled, there are lots of other activities that can be undertaken to develop skills, knowledge and understanding.
Maths and reading should be undertaken each day. A list of recommended reads that might be inspiring are here.
Resources will be updated periodically.
