Citizenship

Years 7 & 8

Students will be set a task once a fortnight in line with their usual lesson. The resources/worksheets can be found on Google Classroom and should be submitted for the deadline set by the class teacher.

Additionally, to build on and support the skills developed in Citizenship lessons students are encouraged to take an interest in current affairs and broaden their understanding of topics which are having an ongoing impact on their daily lives. As part of their research, it is important to consider and explore information from many sources, however students are advised to stick to reputable platforms in order to form their own opinions. Families are encouraged to have discussions and debates on topical issues.

Students in need of other support during school closure can also use the following agencies:

Kooth – www.kooth.uk
