Homework

Homework is a key part of student development in Mathematics at Archbishop Tenison's school. All pupils are expected to complete at least one task per week. It is expected that many students will be independently completing much more by the time they are in Year 10.

The majority of homework will be set through the MyMaths website. Pupils will therefore need access to the internet at home or be prepared to use homework clubs in school to complete online tasks that are set – one of which is run weekly by the Mathematics Department. Parents or Carers can request their children’s login details by emailing the class teacher. This could be used to monitor progress made on the tasks that have been set.

 

Some homework will be set via worksheets set by the class teacher. It should be noted however that the department adopts a flexible approach to following schemes of work and uses a range of assessment strategies to efficiently target topics.

 

KS3 Curriculum Description

 Year 7 is taught in streamed form groups according to overall academic ability.Year 8 will be set into specific Mathematics teaching groups according to assessments done in Year 7.

 
All classes are taught using a variety of resources. The core text we use is MyMaths for Key Stage 3 (Published by Oxford) in Years 7 and 8. Teachers will however use a variety of other sources for worksheets and activities – interactive whiteboards are an integral part of our teaching.

 

KS4 Curriculum Description

 The Collins texts for Edexcel GCSE are used for year 9 onwards. The GCSE course of study begins in year 9 and all students will sit their GCSE in Mathematics Exam in Year 11. The exam board is Edexcel and two tiers are available: Foundation and Higher (content is defined for each tier). Each student is permitted to take assessments in either the Foundation tier or Higher tier.

The GCSE Curriculum consists of three equally-weighted written examination papers at either Foundation tier or Higher tier. Paper 1 is a non-calculator assessment and a calculator is allowed for Paper 2 and Paper 3. The qualification will be graded and certificated on a nine-grade scale from 9 to 1 using the total mark across all three papers where 9 is the highest grade. Individual papers are not graded. Foundation tier: grades 1 to 5. Higher tier: grades 4 to 9 (grade 3 allowed).

Pupils also have access to a variety of self supporting web sites and programmes on the school network to aid their studying independently. The ever popular 'My Maths' website is used by all students. All pupils have access to the MathsWatch Virtual Learning Environment to support homework and revision – all pupils are given a range of strategies and resources to ensure that their mathematics learning is fully supported in class, after school and at home.
