Senior Blog
30th April, 2020

Welcome to the KJ Tutors Senior Blog!
Issue 1

This blog is aimed at you. We want to share some great educational tools and ways for you to keep in touch with things that interest you. We will be providing you with lots of links to topics that will help you with your school work. Each week we can work together to keep your mind and body active. If you have a good idea, a great resource or you would like to let us know what you have been doing during lockdown, just get in touch with us by emailing info@katiejayne.co.uk.

There will be regular features: such as our ‘Feel the Burn’, ‘Katie’s Interesting Facts’, ‘Poll Vote’, ‘Media Market’, ‘Competition Challenge’ and ‘Career Aspirations’ so keep an eye on those.

We shall also have special features covering subjects that are important to you.

Thanks for joining us and have fun!

Poll Vote

We thought that it might be fun to have a poll once a month to find out what you love….. for example – favourite biscuit!
I would definitely vote custard cream.

So this month email us at info@katiejayne.co.uk and tell us which biscuit gets your vote, choose any not just those pictured. You can have up to four votes (so that you can include your family too!).

Career Aspirations

Do you have thoughts of entering the Creative Industries? Click the link below to join a free, two week course with Mick Grierson who is Professor of Creative Computing at the UAL Creative Computing Institute. You will learn
what AI in the creative industries actually looks like; what skills you need in order to work in the creative industries using AI and how you can go about getting these skills in order to develop a career. Good luck!

Feel the Burn
Looking after your health and body is important throughout your life. Having a great attitude to fitness will help you to keep positive. We know many friends who have started the NHS Couch to 5k. We thought this might be something you and your family could do together. In Week 1, you will begin with a brisk 5-minute warm-up walk, then you will alternate 60 seconds of running, with 90 seconds of walking, for a total of 20 minutes. A nice way to start for everyone in your family unit. You can download the Strava App to help you keep track of your exercise.
