We have streamlined the homework that students need to compete with half termly, one-page documents for most subjects. The “one-page homework documents” are designed to signpost students to exactly what homework needs completing each week. You will be able to access these documents from the school website and they will also be centrally uploaded to a whole school year Teams page with all students being given a paper copy to take home.
What does homework look like?
A key component of the homework that is set from most subjects is self-quizzing on a key section of their knowledge organiser, as set by their subject teacher. The expectation is that they complete this revision, which is evidenced through their notes in their homework book. Each Monday students will complete a retention quiz of the previous week’s key knowledge, alongside showing evidence of self-quizzing in their homework book.
At Key Stage 3 students will be set three pieces of homework each week. This is for English, Maths and Science. English and Science will be self-quizzing using the one-page documents with Maths homework being set online using Sparx.
At Key Stage 4, students will be set homework from a wider range of subjects studied. In year 10, homework is set for English, Maths (Sparx) and Science on a weekly basis, and MFL and Humanities fortnightly with self-quizzing a key component. When students are in year 11 bespoke homework is set from all the subjects studied and still follows the weekly pattern for Maths, Science and English with fortnightly homework from option subjects.
Students can contact their form tutor if they are unable to access ‘Teams’ or have any problems with completing their homework.
