LSQ - Self Quizzing / HM = Hegarty Maths / TS = Tassomai Science / My GCSE = Science / SS = Subject Specific Homework

The Tassomai Science and Hegarty Maths will be the same as Key Stage 3. 

In Years 9, 10 and 11 students will also be set “subject specific” homework.  For the majority of subjects this will be based upon the idea of deliberate practice – completing questions, exam papers or low stakes quizzes on the learnt subject content in class.  Subject specific homework should last approximately 30 minutes.

The expected turn-around is a minimum of 3 days and students should be set the homework on a regular set day per week to assist them with their time management and organisation.  As a school we have just started to use Google classroom, which works in a similar way to any homework online portal, allowing clear instruction and communication between the teacher and student.  Students can access this using their school email account.

In Year 11 it is expected that alongside the deliberate practice activities, students will be revising at home.  Some teachers may set specific revision tasks or topics and as a result may ask to see evidence of each student’s revision.  It is encouraged that as part of their homework organisation, all Year 11 students create a revision timetable and factor in time to complete both the Hegarty Maths and Tassomai Science alongside the revision or deliberate practice set by individual subject areas.

Science 

Students are expected to complete questions on Tassomai on a weekly basis. Homework is set on Mondays and students have until 5pm on Sunday evening to complete their questions. Students have completed their Science homework if they have done one of two things:

1. Answered 150 questions correctly.

2. Completed 5 daily goals. (A daily goal is between 20 and 40 questions, depending on the student)

If students fail to complete their homework they will usually be set a detention on Thursday after school. Alternative arrangements can be made on an individual basis.

- If a student has made no effort to do their homework they will be set a 1 hour 30 minute detention. This is usually if a student has answered below 30 questions correctly, but may be considered on an individual if a student routinely fails to do their homework.

- If a student has made a reasonable effort but has not done all their homework they will be set a 1 hour detention.

If your son or daughter has been set a detention you will be informed by text message the day before.

If you have any questions about Science homework please contact your son or daughter's Science teacher.

Hegarty Maths 

Complete 5 individual tasks using the Hegarty Maths online platform: https://hegartymaths.com/ 

Failure to do any of this will result in a one-hour detention to be served on a Wednesday after school from 3:00-4:00pm.
