Work for week beginning 6.4.20

Parents and carers,

Some suggestions of activities/tasks that your student might want to do from next Monday. I understand that this is technically the Easter holidays, so if you want a break please have one.  As stated before there is no expectation that they complete all or any of these. The work is offered as a way to instill some routine into the day but you know your student best. If you need any advice or help please email me. I am here for you.

Entry 1:

1.Complete some of the PSD pack  – Preparation for Work.

If you look at the unit activities Challenge 1: Use this sheet (from your pack) to help you talk about different skills and qualities:

Cut the pictures out and choose the ones that you think you have. Stick them onto a piece of paper and write your name in the middle.

Entry 2:

1.Complete some of the PSD pack  -Preparation for Work.

If you look at the unit activities Challenge 2:

Find out what skills and qualities employers are looking for in their employees. You could do this by:

• interviewing an employer at your centre (your student can email me and I can set up a phone call)

• talking to employees and employers (your parents have jobs)

Use this sheet (from your pack) to help you talk about different skills and qualities:

2.Complete some of the Employability pack – Rights and responsibilities.

If you look at the unit activities number 2 is:

Talk with others about the responsibilities you have as an employee.

For example: you must let your employer know if you are ill or taking a holiday.

What might happen if you don’t carry out your responsibilities at work?

You could produce a poster/picture that shows your responsibilities and what might happen if these were not met.

Level 1

Challenge 2: Think about the differences between skills and qualities:

  •  a skill is something you have been taught to do (whether it be  learning how to kick a rugby ball, make a cake or swim front crawl, for example.) 
  • A quality is personal to you. (You could be patient, hard working, energetic, organised for example.)

Describe your achievements to a parent.

My skills/My qualities/My achievements
