Distance Learning - Year 7 & 8

It is important that our learners engage with their teachers whilst we are not in school and so our Post Easter Home Learning Program introduces ‘Live Lessons’. These are recorded lessons firstly for Maths, English and Science delivered by your teachers which you will need to complete throughout the week according to the timetable below. Required work from these lessons will need to be uploaded to Show My Homework by 3.00pm the same day and you will receive weekly feedback from your teachers. You will still be using our online software of Hegarty Maths, Century Tech and GCSEPod at other times to further support you in your learning.

If you have any further problems login on or accessing work you can contact us through homelearning@pegasusacademy.org.uk.

Timetable

Below we have outlined a timetable that students should follow. We have split the day into 5 sessions and each session should last at least one hour.
