Hi all, just wondering what the homework is like at Crypt for year 7s? I know they've said there is homework to do everyday but what kinds of things do they do and how long does it usually take? Any insight would be great. I know it'll be a big change, coming from a junior school where homework was only given on the weekends and even then it was something small and/or fun.

Trying to anticipate managing the time between end of school and bedtime and whether dd will be inundated with homework as this will then affect siblings and their activities etc.

The first term they have a limited homework schedule to ease them into it, and then the other subjects kick in later. The amount varies depending on the teacher/subject, but my daughter quickly realised if she kept on top of it and did it each night, she had the weekends free. She has managed fine, and came from a primary where homework was none existent!
Often the homework is a powerpoint or something on their iPads, finishing off stuff from the lesson (so if you get it done in class there is less) or pages of maths etc. Being organised is definitely the key

Thank you!

How have you found the use of the iPads? Is it a good learning tool?

Yes, I am intrigued by this also. It seems a bit of a gimmick but I'd be pleased to be proved wrong.

My daughter thinks the iPads are “cool” and says they are used quite a lot. They have word and PowerPoint so lots do there homework on them and print off at school (occasionally email in), they get notices or missed work emailed to them from teachers. They are used in class for documents rather than having paper copies and used in lessons for research.
In English for example they each had a copy of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas on their iPads instead of a paper copy to read.
All the kids have there own crypt email that they can email each other and connect to the schools WiFi. They do not have App Store so they can only use school approved apps such duo lingo, quizlet and Kahoot etc
