KS3 Academic Enrichment
KS3 students have recently had a break from homework but we know that some of you are itching to have some subject tasks to get your teeth into. On this page, which we have called Academic Enrichment, all your subjects have posted content which will really get you thinking, so we hope you have a go! If you do, then please send the work to your subject teacher on Teams so that they can see and comment on your work. Good luck and happy thinking!
