WOULD you like to spend all day doing maths? Well, lessons at one school in Leicestershire will last a whole five hours when pupils go back in September!
Manor High School in Oadby is trialling the long lessons in line with Government guidance that year groups should be in ‘bubbles’ as much as possible, including lunch and break times, and that pupils should avoiding passing other bubbles in corridors.
The school has drawn up a fortnightly cycle of all-day lessons, so on Mondays it could be maths all day, Tuesdays English, Wednesdays science and so on.
The school is going to trial the new idea for 50 days to see how it goes.
The head teacher, Liam Powell, says that the new plan will fit in with COVID-19 restrictions. He also thinks it’ll be helpful because less lesson time will be lost as pupils walk to different classrooms.
