Summer Tasks for Year 7

Hello new Year 7!

Your new subject teachers have put together some fun tasks for you to complete before you join us in August.

Each task should take between 30 minutes and 1 hour and 30 minutes to complete, so you might want to space them apart so that you're not trying to do too much at once.

If you have any questions about a task, you can send the teacher listed an email to ask for help.

Have a look at all of the tasks to see if there are any where you might need some help from us, as you'll need to get in touch before Friday 3rd July to give us time to reply to your email before the summer holiday.

You should bring your completed work with you on your first day after the summer holidays.

Enjoy!

Mr Shovlin's Task

If you've watched our introductory videos here, you'll have seen some of the team here sharing some surprising facts about themselves.

Now it's your turn to share some facts about you

I explain the task in this video:

Download the Me in a Nutshell sheet here, and have a go at filling it in. 

You can print it out if you like, and write on top, or create your own version of the sheet.

Bring this with you on your first day so your mentors can see what you've put!

English

You are all about to embark on 'The Adventure of Moving to Secondary School'. When you arrive, your English teachers would like to hear about other adventures that you have had! We would like you to complete one of the activities from the following list:

1. Write an anecdote about an adventure.
2. Write a more developed story about an adventure.
3. Create a poem about an adventure.
4. Make a painting, drawing or collage about an adventure featuring words that describe how adventures make you feel.

Take your time to choose from the activities and enjoy thinking about adventures! There are detailed instructions to help you complete the task here. We can't wait to meet you all!

If you need any help, you can get in touch with Mrs Greaves on s.greaves1@lutterworthcollege.com.

Science

In your best handwriting, answer the question, "Why do we need science?".

Please write your answer so it fits on one side of A4 paper so it can be stuck into your Science exercise book when you arrive at Lutterworth College.

Here's Mr Keller talking you through the task:

If you need to get in touch with him, you can email him at j.keller@lutterworthcollege.com.

Modern Foreign Languages

You can find the Languages task sheet here.

If you have any questions, you can email Mrs Pearson at v.pearson@lutterworthcollege.com.

History

We would like you to talk to your parents or grandparents about your family history. Talking to people is a good source of 'oral (spoken) history' - we'll talk about this more when you start Year 7!

See how far back they can remember. You could ask about things such as people's names, where they lived, what their job was, etc.

Please write some notes on what they tell you in your neatest handwriting.

In particular, note down the fact they tell you from longest ago. Also, make sure you include the most interesting fact they tell you.

We look forward to hearing about what you find out in the new school year!

If you need any help, you can email Mrs Shimoda on k.shimoda@lutterworthcollege.com.

Geography

In Geography we look at maps and plans. A plan is like a map but the main difference between a plan and map is that of scale. A plan is more accurate as you can show finer details on it that can't always be shown on a map.

Draw a scaled plan of your garden or bedroom

1. Use a tape measure and measure the size and features (items) in your garden or bedroom.​
2. Use these measurements to draw a scaled plan (bird's eye view) of your garden or bedroom on A4 or A3 paper.​
3. Try and draw it neatly. You can use colour if you wish​.
4. On your work you will need to draw a scale (e.g. 1cm on your paper represents 1m in reality).
5. Include a key to represent the different features in your plan​.
6. Remember to title your plan and put your name on it​

Challenge: use your maths skills and calculate the area (in meter squared) of your garden or bedroom and write it on your work also.
