Year 11 GCSE Independent Study
Whilst the academy is closed and there is some uncertainty over how qualifications will be awarded, the expectation is that all Year 11s are continuing to study outside of school - a minimum of two hours per day.
To reset your Google Suite and Show My Homework passwords, please email email@example.com.
Students should be regularly checking their Show My Homework accounts and Google Classroom to access any work that has been set by their subject teacher. In addition to this, we would recommend the following for core subjects:
English Language/Literature- please use Century Tech to access additional revision materials and practice questions. This is an intelligent learning platform that gives students the best opportunities to independently revise and practice questions for English Language and Literature. A document with information about how to access this resource is linked below- we would encourage all learners to be accessing this daily
Maths - Please complete your weekly work pack in your purple hegarty book and your daily 30 mins of hegarty tasks.
Science- continue to complete the weekly Educake quizzes
Our Careers Advice Service will still be available to students during school closures. Please click here for further information.
Homework Expectations & Show My Homework
All Year 11 students should be completing a minimum of two hours independent study a night, spread across a range of subjects. The work that Year 11s should be completing may include:
- Individual subject-based work
- Ongoing portfolio work (for BTEC and creative subjects)
- Revision for examination subjects
We would encourage all Year 11s to create a weekly study timetable to help them with the management of their work outside of class. A template to help them plan is enclosed below- we encourage all students to create one of these and ask their mentor if they need additional support with this.
Students are set homework via Show My Homework and there is further guidance on this under the homework tab in the parent section of the website.
For maths and science, students are set weekly tasks to complete on Hegarty (for Maths) and Educake (for Science). Please speak to your child's maths or science teacher if you need further information about these websites.
