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.
Show My Homework
Show My Homework is an online system designed to make homework easier for students, staff and parents. 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. Show My Homework helps with this by storing homework in a simple calendar which can be viewed from this Show My Homework page link.
All students should have setup a username and password for Show My Homework and should have logged in. This will give them a tailor made homework calendar allowing them to see homework set for just their classes. If you haven’t or you are suffering any issues with the system please contact ICT support.
We will issue Year 7 parents with a welcome letter which includes instructions on how to log in. Parents in our other year groups should contact their child's tutor if they need help accessing Show My Homework.
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.
