Learning outside the classroom (LOC) is an important way to encourage students to consolidate their learning beyond lessons and encourage them to develop study skills essential to succeed further in their education. The set activities involve a range of study skills including research, presentation skills, extended writing tasks, creative tasks and learning activities.
Students will receive LOC points as part of the academy rewards when they hand in homework of a good quality.
Show My Homework
To help all students with their homework tasks we are using “Show My Homework” which is an electronic homework calendar outlining the set task as well as the hand in date.
Show My Homework can be accessed via the academy website home page and the parent and student portals.
Students and Parents/Carers
There is an “open” calendar of all homework tasks set within the academy which requires no password to access it.
Students may find it easier to login and only see their own homework tasks.
They can login via the SMHW logo on our website and then click on the login button. Students use their B number email.
Username: student’s B number @brinsworth.rotherham.sch.uk (e.g. B99999@brinsworth.rotherham.sch.uk)
Password: same password used to log onto academy IT system
Students may also want to download the ‘Show My Homework’ app so they can access homework via their phones or tablets.
Parents/Carers will receive a PIN number to enable them to set up an account to access their child’s homework tasks.
