Independent Learning

Year 7 & Year 8

 

  • Parents and carers can access all IL tasks and guidance via the Knowledge Organiser booklet which is also available on the school’s website
  • IL tasks should be recorded by students in their planners during lessons
  • Maths, Science, English and MFL will set IL every week, all other subjects will set IL once a fortnight.

 

The majority of IL in Year 7 and Year 8 will be based around learning content from knowledge organisers. This might include learning spellings in readiness for a key vocabulary test; preparing flashcards that include key concepts and definitions to use in lessons; self-quizzing and other creative tasks that are based around embedding knowledge. At times, teachers may deviate from revision based IL tasks and set more creative or research based activities. 

 

Year 9, 10 & 11

 

  • Parents and carers can access all IL tasks and guidance via the school’s revision website
  • IL tasks should be recorded by students in their planners during lessons
  • English, Maths, Science, CRS and option subjects will set IL every week.

 

IL will be set by individual subject teams and will focus on the necessary skills and understanding to prepare students for their exams. Year 10 and 11 students are expected to spend up to 1 hour on each piece of IL set. Students must take pride in their IL as it is a valuable learning aid and will support their revision at the end of their KS4 courses.
