Homework in St John Bosco College is teacher-led structured revision. It is widely recognised that working at home makes an important contribution to student progress. The focus of homework is to help students embed knowledge, revise work and learning from class, read around subject knowledge and develop independent study skills. Students have regular tests (every 2 weeks or 3 weeks depending on subject needs) across KS3 and 4. The dates and topics for these, as well as clearly defined revision materials, are posted for students and parents on line via the Show My Homework Platform - a web-based system which can be accessed here. This allows parents/carers to see the details of the tasks their child has been set, as well as their submission status and grades.
Students need to revise regularly for these tests following the structured revision timetables attached below. Maths will also set additional practice homework for Years 7 – 11 via the My Maths app. Science will set additional homework via the Tassomai learning platform for Years 9 -11. Additional supplementary written or research homework may be set by teachers to develop particular strands of knowledge as required. Additionally, each child should read for at least 30 minutes a day. In Year 7 and 8 all students must take a test on Accelerated Reader to make sure that they were reading it properly and that it was the right level for them.
