Each week, activities on Vocab Express are regularly set for homework (a minimum of 15 minutes per week):
Vocab Express provides an excellent and easy way of tracking students’ progress and also the ability to monitor and follow each individual’s progress.
Students have to log on to “vocab Express” with their individual login and password given at the beginning of the academic year. As homework, they will have to achieve one level - sometimes two for the most able - based on spelling or grammar.
Students should allocate a minimum of 30 minutes per week of their Home Learning time. Home Learning tasks will be set on a regular basis. Occasionally, additional tasks may be set to consolidate the learning that has taken place in class and to reinforce the preparation of their controlled assessments. Home Learning may consist of memorising speaking/writing individual presentation, reading comprehension tasks and short pieces of written work.
The French Department runs at lunchtimes and after school catch-up session for KS4.
