Year 9 homework & timetable

18 September 2020 Categories Senior

Dear Parents,

On the reverse side of this letter is the homework timetable for Year 9. The time to be spent every night on homework should be about one to 1 ½  to 2 hours, approximately 20 to 30 minutes for each subject. We do not expect children to work any longer than this every evening, but please could you let me know if it seems as if homework is not being set regularly. Any homework assignment, which has to be handed in the following day, must be done immediately but on many occasions, the workload can be spread over two or more evenings. Please remind your child that reading and learning homework is as important as written homework and that they should make a habit of reviewing the day’s work before settling down to set homework.

Please encourage your child to do the homework at the same time every evening, thus establishing a daily routine, and remind them that they are expected to read as much as possible in addition to their homework. Even though the library is not open to students at the moment, our librarian, Mrs Salter, has set up a mobile library system where pupils can borrow books during their English lessons. There is a recommended reading list for Year 9.

Every pupil has been given a homework diary and this should enable you to follow their progress easily. Would you please sign the homework record every week so that we are sure your child is keeping you informed about the work they have completed. If you have any problems or queries, please contact me (or their form teacher) via email or telephone.

I would appreciate your signing and returning the confirmation slip below to your child’s form teacher as soon as possible.

Mrs V Bodington
