Below is a summary of the homework arrangements for each subject.
Government guidance on homework states that it should :
- be planned carefully to complement work done in school
- be appropriate for individual students
- help students learn
- not always be written work, other activities could include:
- preparing a presentation
- finding out information
- making something or carrying out an experiment.
In addition, the importance of feedback is highlighted. Feedback should let students know how well they have done and how they could do better. This may not always be through written comments. On occasions, work will be discussed in lessons or comments made on just one or two aspects of the work.
At Conyers we believe that homework is an important part of every student’s learning, because it helps them :
- become independent learners
- prepare for, reinforce and extend classroom learning
- prepare for summative assessments.
You will notice that there is frequent reference to Conyersnet, our Virtual Learning Environment. All students can access Conyersnet from the school website using their unique login and password. Why not ask your son/daughter to show you what is available on Conyersnet?
