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

Homework at Harris Academy Greenwich.

For any further information or queries please email: Homework@harrisgreenwich.org.uk

Homework is used as a tool for students to consolidate learning already acquired through the delivery of the curriculum during lesson time. Students will be trained from Year 7 onwards on how to learn the most powerful knowledge from each of their subjects, a skill which will progress during their journey at Harris Academy Greenwich and prove pivotal in KS4. Subject experts will support and ensure that students have retained knowledge through low stake quizzes at the start of lessons that the homework is being checked in.

Students will complete various types of homework:

  • Reading – 30 minutes per night minimum. Students complete a reading log in their books.
  • Flip and Fetch key facts from their Knowledge Organisers into their homework books. All students have been given Knowledge Organisers a homework book (containing lined paper) to complete this and should use this at home to complete their homework.
  • Technology apps in Maths and Science to supplement self-quizzing (Hegarty Maths for all year groups which is due every Thursday and Tassomai*) *Year 10 and 11 only.

 

Flip and Fetch Expectations for KS3 (Year 7, 8 and 9)

Students should bring their Knowledge Organisers and homework books in to school every day as homework will now be checked on different days of the week.

How will homework be set?

  • KS3 students will be set homework regularly by their subject teachers, who will inform students on the box they should learn.
  • Students will have a maximum of seven days to complete one full page of flip and fetch into their homework book. The student should have this page ready to show the teacher, who will check that the page is fully complete.
  • English, Maths(Hegarty online app), Science and PRG will set homework once per week. Whereas, MFL, Music, Computing, Geography, Drama, History, Art and DT will be set homework twice per half-term. The latter subjects will set homework following the rota below:

Flip and Fetch Expectations for KS4 (Year 10 and 11)

Students should bring their Knowledge Organisers and homework books in to school every day as homework will be checked on different days of the week.

Year 10:

  • As students have now chosen their options, they will be expected to complete one page of flip and fetch into their homework book for each of their chosen subject per week.
  • Subject Teachers will set one box from the Knowledge Organiser that must be learnt. Students will have a maximum of seven days to learn the knowledge from the box, by using the flip and fetch method they are already trained in.
  • Students will be expected to show one full page of flip and fetch in their homework book during the lesson it is due in for. Subject Teachers will further test that they have retained the knowledge, by asking students to complete a low stakes quiz that is based on the box of knowledge that students will have flipped and fetched as homework.

Year 11:

In addition to flip and fetch, students are also provided with a folder where they should keep their additional revision resources for each subject in an organised manner. Students will also attend supervised study on a weekly basis, where they can complete some of their revision homework. Subject Teachers will check homework on a weekly basis and ensure knowledge is secure via a low stakes quiz that is planned based on what students have revised that week in Supervised Study and at home.

Further Support:

Homework Club will be available for students to attend from 3.30 every weekday. A member of the Homework Team will be there to offer a quiet space for homework completion and to support students with their completion.
