Firstly, and most importantly, there is NO expectation on you to do all of this work. It is there to offer support and children can do as much, or as little as they are comfortable with. We know that pupils are all at different stages, and this work is to give you a flavour of the sort of work that you will be doing at St George's.
Click on the subject links below and they will in turn open up workbooks, lessons or other documents for you to try. Hopefully these will help you start to prepare for life in Year 7 at St George's!

For the next 6 weeks the work you will be set is based on Greek mythology. In English you will work on reading and writing skills and the work here will give you a taster of what you will learn in more depth at St George’s.
Greek mythology is a body of stories concerning the gods, heroes, and rituals of the ancient Greeks. Mythology was at the heart of everyday life in Ancient Greece. Greeks regarded mythology as a part of their history. They used myth to explain natural phenomena, cultural variations, traditional enmities and friendships. Whilst exploring these Greek myths you will develop your reading comprehension and your writing skills.
You will need to work on paper or a word document.
