Newlands
Girls’ School

Home Learning

Science Home Learning work for the fortnight commencing Monday 20th April has now been uploaded onto Teams.  You daughter will have received an email with a link to the work.  Her Science teacher will be contacting her via email over the fortnight to offer support and feedback.

If your daughter cannot access the work them please can you email me at philipwood@newlandsgirls.co.uk .

Alternatively, your daughter can complete the following tasks:

Year 7

Revise for your end of year exam using your exercise book.  Create revision resources such as foldables and flash cards.
