You should only send your child to school on Monday if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response. If you are able to keep your child at home, you should. https://t.co/n1B1gngVWr

A reminder that children of keyworkers and vulnerable groups can come to school on Monday at 9am. Just drop us an email to let us know you’re coming. Let’s do it 👊

Homework

Harris Academy Greenwich Homework Policy

Purpose of Homework:

Homework is used as a tool for students to consolidate learning already acquired through the delivery of the curriculum. It provides an opportunity to overlearn topics, skills and knowledge to support long term memory - interleaving of both current and past learning to ensure skills and knowledge stick. Through the use of low stakes quizzing, teachers’ understanding of student learning is informed, supporting further planning for individuals.  

 

Homework expectations:

  1. Reading – 30 minutes per night
  2. Self-Quizzing in homework books (Flip and Fetch)
  3. Technology apps in maths and science to supplement self-quizzing (Hegarty Maths and Tassomai* ) *specified year groups only

     

Reading

  • Read alone, or with an adult at home for at least half an hour a day
  • Daily reading must be recorded in student ‘Reading logs’.
  • Parents / carers must sign reading logs weekly
  • English teachers will check reading logs weekly on their designated day

     

Self-Quizzing (Flip & Fetch)

  • Flip and Fetch homework will be set by class teachers from Knowledge Organisers.
  • Flip and Fetch homework will be completed in student Homework books.
  • Each subject studied requires a minimum of one full page of work.
  • Flip and Fetch homework will be checked each week on a Tuesday, period 1. Students must have their Homework books with them every day.
  • KS3 must complete 6 pages of Flip and Fetch a week. KS4 must complete 7 pages of Flip and Fetch each week as well as any extra homework from their GCSE subjects.
  • Classroom teachers will check the quality of Flip and Fetch homework in lessons through weekly quizzes.
  • Homework club is available every day after school in room 2.13.

 

 

 

 

Hegarty Maths

(Online Maths platform)

  • Students will watch a video set by the teacher
  • Students will copy down the practice questions into the back of their homework books from the video.
  • Students attempt to answer the task(s) set by the teacher. Students must attempt and re-attempt (if need be) a task set that they are struggling with. It is okay to get something wrong, provided that more than one attempt and working out has been shown.
  • Students must show their working out for task(s) at the back of their homework books
  • Year 7 complete 1 task each week
  • Year 8, 9, 10 complete 2 tasks each week

 

Tassomai

(Online Science platform)

Non-Completion of homework:

  • A record is made on BROMCOM for both KS3 and KS4 students
  • A centralised school detention of 30 minutes will be set
