Keep on Learning over the Half Term with Home Access

Keep learning alive for your students during half term with EducationCity’s Home Access! Students can either access work set by teachers or explore EducationCity themselves so they’re still learning during the holiday.

It’s really important that students continue learning outside of school as research indicates that as many as one in three children regress academically due to a break away from school*.

Ellen Hartshorn, Educational Support at EducationCity, recommends Home Access to teachers and parents: “It’s great to set consolidation work for students, and through MySuccess, children and their families can track the progress they’re making through topics.”

Read on to find out Ellen’s top tips for Homework!

Ellen’s Top Tips for Setting Half-Term Homework

1. Set Specific Homework: with MyCity to cover key points from the term’s lessons and to use as a mid-term assessment point for your class.

2. Sequence Homework: now that MyCity lets teachers sequence work in a set order, why not allow a PlayLive challenge to be ‘unlocked’ at the end?

3. Set Learn Screens: add in a Learn Screen before setting Activities to maximise understanding – they can also be set as a reminder of what’s been covered in class.

4. Track Progress: track Homework at a glance with the new MyCity Tracking tab to see how students get on over the holidays!
