The purpose of homework is to check the pupils’ information and understanding by prepare pupils for learning in the classroom. Homework is used to support and develop information and understanding of the pupils by developing independent learners.
KS3 pupils will receive an average of one homework a week in the core subjects and one every 3 lessons in all the other subjects. KS4 pupils will receive an average of one homework a week in all of the subjects (There will be some periods in the year where pupils will be expected to work independently through revision and preparation for internal and external assessments).
Dangos dy Dasg (Show my Homework)
Since September the school has bought into the scheme Dangos dy Dasg (Show my Homework) in order to track pupils’ homework, and it also allows parents/guardians to see the tasks which are set. The system is easy to use and allows you to see the tasks as well as tasks which have not been completed by your son/daughter.
It is possible to receive messages to your mobile phone when work is set or not completed!
For further guidance see the following video:
If you have any questions regarding the homework which is set, marks, introducing work on time etc – contact the school to arrange a conversation with your child’s Progress Coordinator. If you experience difficulty in logging in to the system your child must see Mr Hedd Williams, the school’s ICT technician or contact the school directly through firstname.lastname@example.org
