The more we experience in our own mind through meditation, the more likely we'll manifest it outwardly. Here, a piece from the blog has some suggestions as to how we might turn our kindness into action https://t.co/D0C9m6Ej2R

Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

HomeWork

Homework:

  • As of this academic year, the school is launching a new homework policy. The emphasis being on self-quizzing and developing students’ long-term memory. The new linear GCSE and A-Level specifications has meant that students need to develop these skills so that the knowledge ‘sticks’. It is more important than ever that students are regularly revising lesson material independently at home.

The new homework expectation comprises of three parts:

1.         Reading – 30 minutes per night

2.         Self-Quizzing in practice journals – one page per subject each night

3.         Technology apps in maths and science to supplement self-quizzing (Tassomai and XIL) *specified year groups only

To optimise the effectiveness of self-quizzing, pupils must write out knowledge from memory and must not copy. Your child will have extensive training in school as how to do their self-quizzing. Your child will be expected to bring in their practice journal and knowledge organsier every day to school in their bags. Learning Guides will check the quantity of homework in practice journals and classroom teachers will check the quality of homework in lessons.

Maths IXL for KS3

IXL is a comprehensive, standards-aligned learning experience offering unlimited questions in thousands of skills to provide students with an independent outlet to consolidate what is learnt in lesson and help them revise for assessments. IXL allows students to gain mastery over fundamental mathematical skills while competing with their fellow peers through the time spent on IXL and skills they’ve mastered.

 

All Y7, Y8 and Y9 students are expected to spend at least 60min on IXL per week. All students have been given their logins and passwords and shown how to access and use the website. If students are having difficulty accessing IXL, they can speak to their maths teacher or go directly to Ms Pello, Ms Gilson or Mrs McMillan. Students who fail to complete their 60 min on IXL, will be given an hour maths detention on a Friday after school where they will complete their IXL time in that session.

 

IXL is to be completed in ADDITION to the five pages of Flip and Fetch. It DOES NOT replace Maths Flip and Fetch.
