Key Stage 3 Homework

As part of the year 7, 8 and 9 curriculum at Trinity Academy Grammar, students are required to gain core knowledge in all of their subjects. This knowledge will deepen their understanding of each subject and help them to understand the world around them. At Trinity we understand that acquiring knowledge takes time; this part of the website is dedicated to providing resources to help students revise the content needed each term. In years 7, 8, and 9, students will be provided with ‘knowledge organisers’ from the following subjects each term:

·         English

·         Maths

·         Science

·         Art

·         Drama

·         French

·         Geography

·         History

·         ICT

·         Music

·         PE

·         RS

·         Technology

As part of their weekly homework, students will be expected to revise from each knowledge organiser. This knowledge will be tested weekly in each subject area, as well as at the end of every term, in the form of a multiple choice test. From the results of these tests students will be able to see which subjects they are performing well in and which subjects they need to focus on.

To ensure students are engaging with these knowledge organisers and completing their homework, we have a 70% pass rate for the weekly class tests. If a student does not achieve 70% or more, then the teacher will ask to see evidence of revision, so it’s a good idea for students to produce revision cards/notes while they are completing their homework. If no evidence of revision can be produced, or it is not an acceptable standard, then a homework detention will be issued.
