At Beamont Collegiate Academy we believe homework is ‘Essential Learning’ that plays a vital role in raising the standards of achievement of pupils of all ages and it is an essential part of the way in which the Academy prepares pupils for both examinations and lifelong learning.
At the start of each half term, each pupil will be issued with an Essential Learning booklet which contains all the knowledge organisers for that half term’s learning. It will also contain quizzing activities that will test and develop the pupil’s knowledge throughout the half term.
Other homework might include such things as:
- Writing assignments
- Learning assignments
- Preparing a presentation
- Reading in preparation for a lesson
- Finding out information/researching a project
