Homework at Aylward Academy
The homework strategy at Aylward Academy is based on the following principles:
Homework will be set on a regular weekly cycle
Homework will be used to revise/revisit previously learnt material, using an interleaving approach
Homework will utilise high-quality existing resources (e.g. Seneca Learning, Mathswatch etc.)
Homework will be centrally set and monitored at KS3 and KS4
Students in KS3 will complete approximately 20 minutes of homework for each of their Ebacc subjects, as outlined in the table below. In addition, students will complete 40 minutes of reading per week.
Students in KS4 will complete approximately 30 minutes of homework for all of their subjects every week, which will be recorded in their bespoke KS4 learning journals.
Students in KS5 will complete at least one hour of homework for all of their subjects which will be recorded in their bespoke KS5 learning journals.
