Homework plays a key part in students’ learning across the whole curriculum at Manor, and is set regularly in subjects through the booklet learning system now in place. Homework reminders can be found in the student planners, which are checked by both the tutor and families.  At Manor we view homework as an opportunity for students to work independently to consolidate both powerful knowledge and skills. Homework is work that is set to be completed outside of the timetabled classroom. It is designed to allow students to build both the skills and the powerful knowledge required for each subject that they are studying.

Research shows that students have increased success in complex tasks (E.g. examinations, problem solving etc.) when they have a detailed knowledge of subject content and the skills required to apply this knowledge. By committing the skills and knowledge required to long term memory, it frees up working memory so that processing information is easier when solving problems. 

Homework is set every week in English, Maths and Science and at least fortnightly in every other subject. 

Satchel One – Homework App

We are pleased to be able to offer the “Show My Homework” app for you and your children. The App will give you a bigger role in your child’s learning and provide you with a more up to date information source on the homework being set. It will also support students to have a very clear understanding of the high expectations of the homework being set and what work they need to complete outside of the classroom to make the maximum progress.

Information and videos on how to use the Satchel One app can be found below.

If you have any technical issues regarding the app or need your parent code, please email HomeworkSupport@manor.ttct.co.uk. For any queries about the homework set, this should be directed to your child’s teacher.
