8B1 Revision & Edmodo

March 18, 2014 by

Evening all,
The revision sheet should be in the ‘box’ available on the downloads tab at the top of this webpage. Click on downloads, 8 blue, and find the Easter/ spring exam revision pages. There is no need to print out if you can just work from the screen.
In order to make downloading and feedback/ asking questions easier, I would like to trial the use of Edmodo online ( with this class. I am using this website successfully with my year 9 & 10 classes and am sure, given that you are a sensible lot, it will work just as well. Edmodo is a free and secure network for teachers, students and schools. It provides a safe way for us to connect, share content, access homework, participate in class discussion and receive class information. I have used it successfully to share worksheets, powerpoints, video clips used in class, soundfiles and other items. Classes have also discussed topics and given feedback. Students have found it particularly vital when they have a question about their homework, particularly when they only have 3 French lessons a fortnight! Edmodo is accessible online and through any mobile device with internet capabilities – including free apps for iPhone, iPad, i pod touch and Android devices. Students can access their account from any mobile device or computer, and set up notifications within Edmodo to receive alerts.

Edmodo CANNOT be used as a social network like Facebook, especially given that students cannot contact each other via the site. Edmodo WILL ONLY be used strictly for educational purposes using the following guidelines:
- the site will be used to discuss school work content only
- no student to student messaging is allowed on Edmodo at all
- students should use appropriate grammar instead of texting language
- there should be no negative comments or sarcasm towards others’ ideas.

Students who violate the above and also attached (on the downloadable sheet) guidelines may face disciplinary action and the privilege of using Edmodo.
If you have any questions, please contact me at the school. Parents can also be given their own Edmodo parallel sign in so that they can see exactly what their child is doing on Edmodo and I would like to encourage parents to do this – details on the parent sign up to follow once the scheme is off the ground.
The next step will be to download the letter in the ‘downloads’ 8 blue folder – entitled Edmodo letter, get it signed by the pupil and their parent/ guardian and bring it in to school. No child will be excluded if they decide not to use Edmodo and resources will be made available via the normal Thirsk Langs blog route.

I hope you will find these flashcards useful for revising. Please note your speaking exam is in MARCH! (Which you probably did know and write down at the start of the GCSE course). :) I am also offering the use of A2/ aka the talking shop, to specifically practise speaking questions on Thursday lunchtimes up until the exams. Bring your lunch and we will get through as many questions as possible.

Mamma Mia 7RT! Learn those -er verb endings!

January 29, 2014 by and tagged ,

7RT have been learning about verbs and how their endings change. Click on the play button to hear them sing :) Please leave them a comment underneath to let them know about their efforts!!

I’ve been learning those verbs since I don’t know when.
Now I’ve got my verb test I must learn them again
How do they go?
Will I ever learn?
How do they end?
With an -er verb for step one
Get the infinitive (the dictionary form)
Then step 2 knock off the -er
Then step 3 put back an ending
And they are

e, es, e, e, ons, ez, ent
e, es, e, e, ons, ez, ent

Oh its so nice and easy,
With steps 1,2 and 3
Why why, did I never really know? Er verbs, now I really know
How, how, how they should really go

(Sing along to your heart’s content!!) ;)
