Homework Policy

 

Our homework policy reflects the fact that language learning is an on-going skill and pupils’ progress in Modern Languages depends on regular study.

Homework is generally issued via Show My Homework/Satchel One. 

 

Both learning homework and written homework are used:

  • so that pupils can self-assess what they know and what they need to work on
  • so that pupils and teachers can identify  areas for development and next steps
  • so that teachers can plan ahead
  • so that teachers can give feedback to the class, to individuals, verbally or in writing

 

S1/2 pupils are expected to:

 

  • Learn the vocab covered in the previous lesson (5-10 minutes minimum per night)
  • Do written homework from the Tapas Menus at the end of the vocabulary booklets (see an example below). 
  • Complete other revision or preparation tasks, as set by the teacher. 
  • Learning Homework is a regular and ongoing task, whereas written homeworks are typically completed every two weeks. 

 

 

 

S3-4 pupils are expected to:

 

  • Learn the vocab covered in the previous lesson (10 mins per evening  minimum) using their notes and the vocabulary booklets issued to them
  • Read over grammar notes
  • Complete any Reading, Writing, Talking preparation or Grammar tasks issued as homework
  • Learning Homework is a regular and ongoing task, whereas written homeworks are typically completed every 1-2 weeks. This will increase nearer assessments and final exams, when more revision and preparation will be required. 

 

S5/6  pupils are expected to:

 

  • Learn the vocab covered in previous lessons (10 mins per night)
  • Read over grammar notes
  • Do/complete a grammar exercise once per week
  • Prepare for oral work by writing out short talks
  • Complete any work not finished in class
  • Post –October break, complete  an element from the final exam (R comp, translation, essay work)
