X24 / Y9 GCSE Spanish Extended Study

This week’s X24/ Y9 GCSE Spanish Extended Study is centred on learning the irregular verbs “tener” (“to have”) and “estar” (“to be”), currently being used to describe ailments and injuries. Vocabulary retrieval, i.e. a test on these two verbs, will take place in session on Friday 17th January. Relevant slides will be shared with students.










Thank you.

X24 Skipper – STEAM Extended Study – Tassomai

Students in X24 Skipper have now all been introduced to Tassomai. We’ve had a great session today!

Tassomai is a quizzing app which tracks student progress and builds the level of challenge over time. It will also return to previously studied questions automatically to check that new knowledge is being retained over time.

This will be an ongoing extended study for every week. This week students need to complete their daily goals for at least 4 out of the next 7 days.

There is a Tassomai app which can be downloaded from the app store or google play.

I will check that students have been completing this each every Tuesday.

Any questions or problems, please contact me:


Tassomai: Continuing Extended Study

A polite reminder that ALL C21 and C22 students have the ongoing compulsory extended study task of completing 10 minutes of daily quizzing on Tassomai. This must be kept up throughout the half term and beyond if it is to have to impact on student’s recall of key science information.

Please remind your sons and daughters of the need to keep this up!

Thanks again for the continued support.
