But, I don’t have any homework set!
• * Continuing with coursework or assessment tasks that have been set previously
• * Re-capping - look at your timetable, is there any work you did today in a lesson that you need
to do more on, complete, re-draft or understand better by reading it over again or completing more
• * Preparation - look at tomorrow’s timetable. Do you need to re-read work to help you get ready for
tomorrow? Have you forgotten stuff from last week – if so look at it now. Check your homework is ready
for handing in tomorrow - could you improve it?
• * Extra research - the school homework planner has recommended websites that you could visit to help
you really get ahead and boost your grades
• * Check Bitesize/past papers/SAM Learning/ Revision sites – this is especially good for older students.
Check Insight Portal - is there work you could look at there?
• * Tidy and organise - sort out your workspace, tidy out your bag or pencil case. Make sure you have got the
school equipment you need.
• * ‘Read around. Read extra articles, research, information about work that interests you or that you need to
know more about.
• * Research jobs and courses, know what qualifications you need to follow your dreams.
