  9. 9. Termly Feedback for Students and Parents Students will receive ‘orange sticker feedback’ once per term. This feedback is marked for parents’ attention using orange stickers. Each department will present this information in the most useful and appropriate way for that particular subject area, but orange sticker feedback will follow these principles: • KS4 students will receive a mark, percentage, or grade if appropriate • At KS3 and KS4, this feedback will clearly show students’ strengths and areas for development. • At KS4 this feedback will include a written comment from the member of staff. • Written comments will also be a feature of Key Stage 3 feedback but the frequency will depend on the subject: Core and Humanities subjects will give a written comment on each orange sticker assessment. Practical subjects will give a written comment on at least one occasion. We ask that all parents sign this feedback to confirm that they have received and read the information.

  17. 17. Explain why the Munich Putsch was a failure for the Nazis. (7 marks) The Munich Putsch was a failure for the Nazis because of organisation. For example, after the meeting in the Beer Hall on the 8th November, the SA were supposed to cut the phone lines so that the government in Berlin couldn’t be notified. However, this was not done and therefore the army and police were there to meet the march on the 9th November. Also, the fact that Hitler had a getaway car waiting for him also showed that even the Nazis themselves were not confident of a successful Putsch. This linked with the fact that 300 police managed to successfully stop the Putsch highlights Nazi disorganisation and shows why their Putsch was a failure. Secondly, the Munich Putsch was also a failure because of the impact it had on the Nazi campaign. The Putsch did not succeed in it’s aims, and the Nazis did not take control of Munich, let alone Germany. Following the Putsch, Hitler was tried and ended up in prison, during this time his campaign for power was on hold. The Nazis were not even allowed to meet when he was in prison which meant they were not out gaining more support and votes. Hitler was also banned from speaking in public on his release from prison, his speaking skills were one of the Nazis strengths and without this, they would be less successful as a party therefore showing why the Munich Putsch was a failure.

  19. 19. Homework
  20. 20. What does the evidence say? Homework is not a substitute for the expertise and knowledge of a teacher. There is an optimum amount of homework of between one and two hours per school day, with effects diminishing as the time that students spend on homework increases. In the most effective examples of homework, it was an integral part of learning, rather than an add-on. Spaced retrieval and revisiting of information is crucial if we want students to avoid the forgetting curve. After 20-40 minutes of working at one task, the quality of the learning starts to diminish. Somewhere around 20-30 mins for younger children and 30-40 mins for older children is the optimum amount of time to spend on a task. • EEF Toolkit • G.Nuthall: The Hidden Lives of Learners • D.Willingham: Why Students Don’t Like School • J.Dunlosky: Unlocking the Student Toolbox
  21. 21. The purpose of homework at Ryedale School is to consolidate and revise learning.
  22. 22. Quantity KS3: Approx. 3 hours per week KS4: Year 9 approx. 4 hours per week Years 10 and 11 approx. 5-6 hours per week Frequency KS3 - core subjects will be timetabled - other subjects will set homework when it is most appropriate KS4 All subjects will set when stipulated on the homework timetable.
  23. 23. Parental Strategies “I’ve got to write an essay on An Inspector Calls and I don’t get it.” “I’m stuck!” “I got 12/30.” When is it due? Do you have a WAGOLL? Is there a mark scheme? Have you ever done a question like this before? What are the command words in the question? Explain the task to me in your own words Can you break the task down into smaller tasks? Is it content or technique that you are finding difficult? Find Miss/Sir tomorrow with a precise question What did you do well? Where do you need to improve? Could you improve the way you approached this task?
