Year 8 learning plan

We're here to help with the January 2021 school closures

We know that the latest school closures are putting a lot of additional pressure on parents and teachers. At EdPlace, we’re committed to supporting the continuity of learning for parents, teachers and students as much as possible while classrooms are shut.

We’ve put together a 6-week suggested guide to help support home learning for your Year 8 child should you need it.  

All of the resources are free to use on our website, automatically marked and are created to enable your child to work independently, so you can focus on your own tasks while they're learning - win, win! All activities are created by fully qualified teachers with 5 or more years of classroom experience and aligned to the National Curriculum so you can have confidence that the work you set is in line with what they'd be studying in school. 

For the best experience sign up to a free parent account to access automatic personalised recommendations and reports.

Off we go!

Using your child’s summary reports you can identify an area for focus in each subject over the next 5 weeks to support your children in their learning while schools are closed.  

Why not set a target for each subject and work through our activities to help consolidate understanding? You can use our weekly planner below to create a tailored learning plan.

 In addition, we’ve also provided you with a weekly lesson from our teachers and 5 recommended activities to supplement their learning.
