Gloucester Academy

Homework during October half term

Dear GA Family

I hope that this letter finds you well and your child has had a successful first half term with us at Gloucester Academy.

Our homework model is absolutely key to ensure the students are able to climb the mountain to the best universities and professions.  Therefore, please see below the expectation of homework during the October half term.

Knowledge Organiser (all years)

In preparation for your child's upcoming KIP assessments, all students will be expected to use their homework booklets from this term to revise/revisit any key terms that they have not already learnt. They should continue to use the same process of reading the definition, covering the definition, writing out the definition and then checking for accuracy focusing mainly on the definitions that they have got wrong.

Sparx (all years)

Sparx will continue for all year groups over half term, with the deadline for this being the first Wednesday back (2nd November 2022).

Seneca (Year 11 only)

Seneca will continue for Year 11s over half term with one page of Cornell notes being completed on Monday to Friday.  This will be checked in P0 during the first week back.  A reminder that Year 11 students do have access to October School if they would like a quiet place to complete any independent study/homework.

If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact your child’s Achievement Lead.

Yours sincerely

Mr W Meldrum

Deputy Headteacher
