Support Home Learning in Science

Dear parents and families,

We are delighted to invite you to our next workshop on Monday 3rd of October at 18:00. You can sign up hereand I will send you a link to the Zoom Conference. The aim of this workshop is to help you gain an insight into how we can help our students gain confidence as they improve their memory and retrieval skills. There has been a change to how we assign homework in science this year and we want to talk to you about it! We are excited about the impact that this will have on learning. You will find some more details regarding home learning expectations here. This document gives you an insight into the challenging homework that will be set for all students on a weekly basis as we all aim for excellence.

During the session, I will refer to the following documents for KS3 (Year 7 to Year 9)

The blue hyperlinks take you and your children to the knowledge orgainsers and lesson objectives for the KS3 curriculum. All of these documents are also available through Canvas.

For KS4 (Year 10 and Year 11) I will be referring to the following documents

All students in Year 10 and Year 11 have their own personalised bound revision guide that gives them access to concise knowledge that this needed against each specification point. This, together with the weekly tracked homework from Seneca Learning will support and challenge our students as they aim for their very best.

Lastly, the Science Team offer exam preparation tuition at no additional cost to you every Tuesday from 16:00 to 16:50 in U1. This is open to students primarily in Year 11, though Year 10 are welcome to attend.

We also offer a lunchtime homework club on Thursday in U1 for students who might want to complete their homework in a quiet and happy space so that they have more time at home to follow their additional passions.

Thank you for your time in reading this. We look forward to seeing you all.

The Science Team
