3.  SAM Learning

By Friday 23rd November 2018, Mr Holt will have finished his assemblies to all Year groups introducing them to SAM learning.  Students can log in to the system and complete both revision and testing tasks, teachers have just started setting tasks on the system as well, this will increase after January.  The system is based on a website (www.samlearning.com) and can be accessed on any internet enabled device with a web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer etc). 


Students or parents can login by the following:


Centre ID: BS36RH

USER ID is 6 digit date of birth followed by initials , e.g. 090377AH

Password is: the same as the USER ID


Independent research points out that just 10 task hours per subject has been proven raise outcomes in GCSE examinations (Year 7 is never too early to start!), the more you do the better the increase in grades.  Teachers can set tasks or students can do tasks independently.  Students are able to compete against others and get rewards for using the software.  We will also be having prizes (SAM learning gave us tablets) for the students that used the system the most.
