Homework is essential to successful learning in many subjects. It gives children the opportunity to practise what has been learnt in class; it provides opportunities for self-discovery, helping them to acquire greater knowledge and understanding.
Google Classroom is part of the G Suite for Education from Google. It is an online system designed to make work, both at home and at school, easier for students and staff. Homework can be a daunting issue for us all. Teachers need to be aware of homework set by other teachers, so students don't get overloaded. Students need to be clear of their homework requirements and deadlines and parents should be involved in the homework process so they have some idea about what their children are expected to do.
All students have access to Google Classroom through their school Google account. They have a 'classroom' for each of their subjects. Each time a piece of homework is set, an email gets sent to their school email address and gets added to their Google Calendar too.
Parents and carers who have provided the school with their email address will receive a weekly email from Google Classroom which summarises the homework that has been set for their child. An invitation email is usually sent out first, which when accepted will allow the weekly emails to be sent. If you have not previously supplied your email address to the school, please contact the school office to do so.
The homework timetable for all year groups can be found here. The homework timetable is constructed to help ensure a relatively even distribution of homework set across the week. In addition to this pupils are expected to read for 30 minutes each week and to do general revision for at least 30 minutes each week.
