Here’s a little reminder about our fantastic Home Access – it’s perfect for that much needed Easter break learning!
What’s Home Access?
Home Access lets your students take learning home during term time and over the holidays; they can either access work set by teachers or explore EducationCity themselves.
With the Easter break coming up, we know how important it is to keep learning going out of school, especially as research indicates that as many as one in three children regress academically due to a break away from school*.
Top Tips for Setting Homework
- Set specific Homework: Use MyCity to cover key points from the lessons during term or as an end-of-term assessment point for your class.
- Sequence Homework: Sequence your MyCity in a set order; you can even set a PlayLive challenge to be ‘unlocked’ as a reward at the end.
- Set Learn Screens: Add in a Learn Screen before setting Activities; this maximises understanding and can also be a reminder of what’s been learnt in class.
- Track progress: Track Homework quickly and simply using the Tracking tab in MyCity to see how your students are doing!
