When I’ll Do It

work set by me the aim
“Work Set By Me” – The Aim
  • Consolidate
  • Extend
  • “Revise as you go along”
the fideliter building school it network

Timetabled study is not time in which to complete work set by teachers. (i.e. NOT Homework!)Guidance on independent learning is accessed through the Network’s Shared Area (To be placed on VLE at a future date)The Independent Learning folder contains a separate folder for each AS course.

The Fideliter Building & School IT Network

slide46

Each course folder contains:

  • A Course Outline – stating when each topic is taught and by whom;
  • A “Menu” of Generic tasks to choose from;
  • A “Menu” of Subject / Topic Specific tasks to choose from;
how can it be independent if we are suggesting what they do

“How can it be independent if we are suggesting what they do?”*

It is additional – on top of homework.

The deadline is student set.

It is not assessed – even though teachers will draw on it and refer to it in future lessons.)

*How is this any different to homework?

*In the same way that the revision they did at GCSE

is different to homework they did during GCSE!!

Sixth Formers should

be working harder

than their Teachers!

AS Results Day:

Students who did not get the DDD or points equivalent grades needed to get back into Year had what three things in common?

1. They did not make use of their planners correctly throughout the year.

2. They used their study sessions to do work set by the teacher (in the hope this meant they did not have to do anything at home!)

3. They had an attendance below 85%.

50 hours per year of extracurricular activities

6. Enrichment Activities in Year 12

50 hours per year of extracurricular activities

It must include 12 hrs of service activity

Enrichment can be done at anytime during Free periods or after school or in the holidays

The time is now for them to do this!
