Welcome to Homework

The main objective of any homework task is to ensure students can continue their journey of progress beyond the classroom. The most effective homework is organised, monitored and helps students deepen their understanding and consolidate their learning.

Therefore, homework at NFS will either:

Prepare Students for Learning Enrich Students Learning
•Learn key facts needed to be successful in the following lesson (from your subject KO)
•Gather materials for class (e.g. ingredients)
•Rehearse for a presentation
•Read an article in preparation for a class discussion
•Apply new knowledge or a variety of skills in stages to complete a larger project
•Research local news about a topic being discussed in class
•Investigate an experiment further
•Write personal reflections in a journal

A rough guide to how long a student should spend on each piece of homework is as follows:

  • Year 7-8: 20-30 minutes
  • Year 9-10: 30-45 minutes
  • Year 11: 45-60 minutes

Students who do not complete the tasks set are in danger of being left behind in class. This will be monitored by the students’ class teachers/tutors and support will be offered as appropriate to help students with completion.
