Science Department Home Learning

Students will be set home learning tasks on a weekly basis. These will take the form of either;

  • Questions to assess understanding
  • Research
  • Reading in preparation for the introduction of a new topic
  • Quizzes (through kerboodle, SENECA or Century Tech)
  • Watching videos and making notes (flipped learning)
  • Design tasks
  • Revision activities

Work set should take between 30-60 minutes to complete and will be reviewed either by teacher feedback or peer/self-assessment at the start of lessons.

If students finish their home learning tasks early, they are advised to use BBC Bitesize, the course revision guide or kerboodle to review/summarise their learning al they progress through the course.

For KS5 students, it is advised that additional time is spent annotating lesson notes after lessons after referencing the course textbook to aid understanding and knowledge retrieval.
