Home Learning

Home Learning at NWHS

 

It is important to set about making excellent progress in your child’s learning by reinforcing crucial information beyond the classroom.

Research indicates that for home learning to be most effective, it should be carefully organised and monitored. To help structure this important aspect of their learning, all students at North Walsham High School are issued with a Knowledge Organiser Booklet. The purpose of this is to set well-structured and challenging homework that strengthens their understanding of key information, concepts and subject specific terminology directly related to the curriculum.

Students should carry their Knowledge Organiser Booklet in a plastic wallet to protect it from damage. It should be brought to school every day, and they are assessed on the content by a variety of in-class methods. The students receive a new Knowledge Organiser every term. They should keep all old Knowledge Organisers safe for revision purposes.

Subjects may choose to set specific sections of the knowledge organiser to learn or different purposeful tasks that deliberately practice the knowledge they need to remember. All home learning will be set via your child’s google classroom (one per each subject).

Please note - mathematics will also continue to set Hegarty maths home learning for 1hr per week. The maths knowledge organiser should therefore only be revised for one/two of the allocated maths time slots on your child’s home learning timetable.
