Home Learning

We want all Kingsmead students to achieve their best possible results and in order to do this we believe they need to spend periods of time studying at home.

This will:

Students are expected to complete all home learning and they should spend the recommended time on it. Please see below for a description of what is expected in each year group.

In Years 7 & 8 students will follow the timetable found on the front of their Knowledge Organiser booklet.

The home learning timetable for Years 9 & 10 is below and will be used to support those students that struggle with managing their time outside of school by ensuring that tasks are spread out over the fortnight. Whilst it is suggested that tasks are completed on a particular night, students can complete beforehand.

All home learning is recorded on ClassCharts allowing students to easily see all tasks and the date they are due. Parents are able to support this important aspect of school life through their own access to ClassCharts.

Support with Knowledge Organiser Home Learning for Students in Years 7 & 8

All students receive a folder with their Knowledge Organiser and an exercise book, which must be brought to school every day. Each term students will receive a new Knowledge Organiser and learn how to self-quiz on the knowledge that links to each subject curriculum by following 30 minutes of practise, test and review for each subject. Tutors will check completion every morning and subject teachers will assess via low stakes quizzes or activities in lessons.
