College Life

Homework

At Bourne Community College we recognize the importance of out of class study to consolidate our students learning and develop their skills as independent learners. All students are expected to participate in out of class learning either at home or in college through the morning, lunchtime and after college sessions homework clubs we run.

Key Stage 3 Homework

Subjects will set either;

Integrated Learning Tasks (ILT) – Half Termly projects designed to consolidate learning in the subject and encourage independent learning eg a topic study or project in RE
or
Specific Weekly Tasks – Each subject will set 1 homework per week designed to consolidate the current topic learning eg Learning additional vocabulary in MFL
They should spend approximately 30 minutes per subject.

Key Stage 4 Homework

Subjects will set either;
Subject Specific Homework Activities designed to consolidate the current topic learning
or
Expect students to continue with their subject coursework specific to the stage they have reached eg Progress current ICT Assignment
or
Revise for forthcoming module tests or full GCSE exams eg past papers or revision questions may be issued

Key Stage 4 students should plan their own homework workload but, as a guide, should spend at least 40 minutes per subject per week.

On-line learning may be set via

My Maths
SAM Learning
or
Moodle (college virtual learning environment) – students can access, and in some cases submit their out of class study via Moodle
