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.
