Online Homework - Epraise

Increasingly students are expected to make use of online revision tools and an online planner ‘Epraise’ to assist in the organization and completion of homework. Students may be required to complete homework on-line, with questions, instructions or project brief for the homework found on Epraise.  There is daily access to school computers at lunchtimes and after school. Through Epraise, parents and students are able to see homework tasks that have been set, and when they are due for completion.

In addition, there is often ongoing independent work that students can do in homework time if a specific task is not set. For example, students are expected to be reading books of their own choice regularly and recommended title lists are held by English teachers. The MyMaths website is available for additional independent study and has work packages suitable for students at every age and level. In year 7 students will participate in the accelerated reading scheme which aims to promote reading and literacy skills.

Students develop their independent learning skills through the completion of homework. Homework is the generic name applied to independent or group work completed outside the lesson. It can take a wide variety of forms and has the potential to fulfill many functions. Homework may be set in order to ensure that students repeat, complete and embed learning or apply it in a new context. It may involve research and fresh learning that complements or extends the curriculum covered in the classroom. It may be the vehicle by which students address individual misconceptions or correct pieces of classwork. It may demonstrate the acquisition of skills as well as knowledge and also be a preparation for and contribution to a future lesson.

Consequently, the setting of homework will vary from subject to subject and within subjects throughout the year. Learning in some subjects (such as Languages and Maths) is often best supported by the completion of short tasks that follow up the lesson content. Other subjects may set extended tasks or projects that are to be completed over a number of weeks.

KS4 students should use some of the study time allocated  to go over and revise topics covered on a regular basis throughout the course. They may do this by revising from their own notes, revision guides or using internet based resources.
