WHAT TYPE OF HOMEWORK WILL BE SET?

Homework will be set each week, usually on Friday for the following Friday. This will be in the form of a key skills worksheet or a vocabulary task. The homework schedule will be set on Show My Homework.

Year 11 students can also expect to be asked to take home practice exam papers for completion, especially as exams themselves get closer.

 

HOW CAN I SUPPORT MY CHILD’S LEARNING AT HOME?

Hegarty Maths is an excellent tool for independent learning, and will help to embed the key skills needed in lesson (following examples, taking notes, applying methods to similar questions), as well as providing instant feedback on practice. After each assessment point students should receive a list of topics from their class teacher detailing where they lost marks and which tasks they should complete in order to revise each particular skill.

There are many other excellent online resources students can access for practice and revision, including:
