As an Academy we pride ourselves on our knowledge-based curriculum and our homework supports and reinforces what is being taught in each lesson. The homework tasks are designed to aid your child in mastering their subjects by learning more and remembering more.
In Key Stage 3, your child will have the opportunity to complete homework that consists of Knowledge Organisers set via Quizlet or independent homework set via Satchel One, formerly ShowMyHomework. Quizlet is an online study application that allows students to study information via learning tools, flashcards and tests.
The following subjects will be setting homework via Satchel One on their relevant platform:
English - Accelerated Reader/Creative Writing
Maths - Sparx
Science - Sparx Science
Spanish - LanguageNut
Art - Booklet
The following subjects will be using Knowledge Organisers set via Quizlet:
History, Geography, RS, Computing, Drama, Food, Healthy Living and Music
These Knowledge Organisers have been uploaded onto Quizlet as ‘sets’ which students will complete weekly. In order to complete the homework, students need to complete two or more activities from the ‘learn, flashcards, write and spell’ section and achieve at least 80% on the test to achieve mastery. Please be aware that any homework set via Quizlet will be automatically uploaded. Students should go directly to Quizlet to complete this work, it will not be set on Satchel One.
In Key Stage 4, all subjects will set independent homework via Satchel One.
