We use Show My Homework (SMH), a programme that is embedded in the school web-site to allow students and parents/carers to access homework tasks. This is a vehicle to communicate all homework with students and parents/carers efficiently and effectively. We expect all teachers to make full use of this resource.
Homework should allow our students the opportunity to work on a range of tasks such as:
• Continue the work of the classroom
• Consolidation of learning
• Practical tasks
• Creative tasks
• Preparation of future work through investigation
• Using IT Oral practice (e.g. interviewing
