The Fallibroome Academy > Curriculum > RESPECT > RESPECT Home Learning - Year 9

In Year 9 students have three lessons of Respect a fortnight. Homework is intended to extend and develop students’ knowledge and understanding of the topics covered during lessons. A substantial homework will be set for students once every three lessons with the exception of our Sex and Relationships topic where homework will be set when appropriate.

  • Research of a particular topic (information found should be written in students own words and not simply copy and pasted from the internet).
  • Creative tasks such as designing posters or leaflets.
  • Revision for tests.
  • Extended writing such as an essay.
  • Reflective questions.
  • GCSE examination questions in the summer term.
  • Acting upon advice given to make improvements to assessed work.

During Year 9 in RESPECT we have a particular aim to develop students' skills of independent enquiry, effective participation and creative thinking. Homework tasks are intended to support students in the development of these areas where appropriate.
