Homework at SMCHS
Homework at St Mary's Catholic High School is an essential part of learning as it provides an opportunity to consolidate and reflect on learning and to prepare for future learning. Good homework gives students the chance to discover and explore more about their learning and to take ownership of it. Homework should also develop valuable skills such as concentration, independence of thought, time management, research and academic rigour so that all students leave ready for study at university level and future employment.
Show My Homework
Show My Homework is an online platform that St Mary's Catholic High School uses for the setting and monitoring of homework. All staff will use SMHW to set homework, all students will use it as a means of accessing set work and all parents will have access to see what work has been set.
Show My Homework allows parents and pupils to see the details of the homework tasks that have been set, as well as their submission status and grades if applicable. It will provide parents with a deeper insight into the homework their your child receives. More importantly, we hope that it will improve pupils’ organisational skills, time-management and help them to keep on top of their workload.
Show My Homework is intended to be the main source of information on homework set. Students should also write homework details in their school planners to keep a record of it during the school day as well as at home.
Show My Homework benefits include:
- 24/7 access
- View quality and quantity of homework
- Translation into over 50 languages
- Apps available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android devices
- Receive automated notifications before homework is due
