Home Learning for Summer Term 2020

How do I access learning while school is closed?

  1. Your teachers will set learning for you by 9am each morning which will be due on 4pm the same day. There will be learning set for three or four different subjects each day, and it is intended to take approximately 4–5 hours.
  2. At 9am each morning, go to SMHW (Show My Homework) and check what work has been set.
  3. In order to complete this learning, you are likely to have to access other online platforms such as Hegarty Maths, Seneca Learning or Google Classroom. Your teacher will provide specific instructions about how you should access your learning on SMHW.
  4. You will need to submit your work each day by 4pm so that teachers can review your learning and either give you feedback or adjust their plans for coming days to help you improve your learning. Depending on what learning you were set, you might submit this learning in different ways. Your teacher will provide specific instructions on SMHW. This could be to:
  • Complete quizzes/activities on SMHW, Hegarty, Seneca or other such learning app.
  • Complete questions/written work and submit it to your teacher – you can do this online on Word or by hand and take a photo which is submitted on SMHW.

How do I submit work to my teachers?
Work can be submitted as a word document or if it is hand-written/drawn work simply take a photo and upload it, using the submit function on SMHW. For more information on how to do this see the following link: https://help.teamsatchel.com/en/articles/2912000-submitting-my-work-online


How much work am I expected to do?
You are expected to complete work for four hours each day and complete the weekly quizzes that are set. You should also take daily exercise. The PE department have given guidance and ideas for this on SMHW.


How will I know when I will be set work for each subject?
You will know the work to be completed because it is on Show My Homework and should be completed on the following days and times:

  • English, Maths and Science will be set on SMHW and should be completed in your CGP workbook
  • Work for all other subjects will be set on SMHW and should be submitted online by 4pm on the same day
