Year 10 Homework Term 3

We passionately believe in supporting student learning outside of the classroom.  Each curriculum area has listed their expectations for homework and independent study outside of lesson hours for both KS3 and KS4.

 

The homework club runs every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3.00pm to 4.00pm in the Learning Zone, offering a quiet and welcoming learning environment.  You can access the computers, including the internet, iPads and a printer.  One to one and group support is available if required. If you attend homework club you will be rewarded with Vivo miles.

 

Art

KS4 students in Art are given homework each week to complete as part of their coursework. This should take them around an hour and a half per week to complete and will be individualised to the students and the projects they have chosen to undertake. If students are unsure they can refer to the homework section in their handbook.

Students complete two projects during GCSE: 60% coursework and 40% exam. Although we have plenty of lessons, students work at different paces and will often have to complete work at home when appropriate. This may be drawing, mixed media, taking photographs or researching artists. Students are encouraged to work independently and take ownership of their projects, therefore completion of homework is vital for students to achieve their potential. If there are any concerns with homework, students/parents are welcome to email any queries to r.talbot@theeastbourneacademy.org. Students are also welcome to attend GCSE catch up sessions every Friday until 4.00pm to use materials, space and extra one-to-one support.

Maths

Maths homework for KS4 is set weekly and will either be on Mathswatch or from the KS4 revision materials in google classroom.

 

MFL

We expect students to do at least two hours of home independent learning per week in year 10 and three hours in year 11. Students can use a variety of resources, for example, BBC Bitesize, Linguascope, DuoLingo, past papers on the AQA website and Languages Online or a task set by the teacher, which will relate to the GCSE examination. Year 11 students are also invited to a weekly revision class. 

As per KS3, students need to learn vocabulary on a weekly basis, focusing on the transition booklet and Words of the Week on Showbie, as they are not allowed dictionaries in the examinations. These words will be tested in class each week and recorded for monitoring purposes. By doing this, students are very likely to achieve their predicted grade because they will be consistently working on GCSE topics that may come up in the exams.

PE

GCSE PE students will be expected to complete one piece of homework each term.  Homework tasks will consist of exam questions covering learned topics for that term, students can access these on Google Classroom.   As well as this it is expected that students will stay up to date with current sporting news that will enhance and consolidate their understanding of the sports industry. 

Pupils are to revise and complete exam questions in preparation for the unit 3 exam, on Monday 12th March.

Students in Performing Arts are required to spend a minimum of one to two
hours per week on Independent Study. This time can be used to undertake a range of activities such as:

**Rehearsing for performances *

**Researching ideas linked to performance work.*

The work undertaken during Independent Study will enhance student’s
fundamental skills, knowledge, and understanding which they will use in each
of their BTEC Units.

All students work and resources are stored in Google classroom and/or
Google drive

Please contact Mrs. Stewart, Mr. Bailey, Miss Bowden or Ms. Stevens should you
