The students are given a homework book, either higher tier or foundation tier based on their Kimberley School Target.

The students will be allocated pages to complete in this book for homework, which corresepond to the lessons taught in class.

The questions involve:

  • Key word tasks

  • Explanations




Help them revise from the classwork books.


Ensure they complete homework on time. Encourage them to ask their teachers for help if they are stuck.


Test knowledge and use of key words and terminology.

Help revision of key topics and required practical activities completed in class.

Encourage revision methods such as using flashcards to summarise and test knowledge.
