As previously highlighted in the online edition of the Brynteg news, the school will be introducing a new way of tracking and completing homework. We will be using a computer based programme called ‘Show my homework’. You and your children can download an app to your mobile device or tablets to track homework easily!
Over the next three weeks before half term, all pupils will have two sessions in the computer room to show them how to access ‘Show my homework’. They will be given a log in for their own use. They will also be given a letter, which has a log in for yourselves. Please ensure they give this to you- if they don’t, please contact us using the form at the bottom of this page!
As a school, we will be offering some sessions for parents/carers after the half term break. There will be several sessions for you to choose from. During these sessions, we will train you in how to use the ‘Show my homework’ tool and track your child’s homework much more easily. Watch out for the dates on ‘Brynteg online’, the school website and the school social media feeds.
You can watch a video which explains getting started as a parent/carer below.
This is an exciting new era for us as a school in the development of e-learning. We want you to be involved in this as much as possible.
We will be trialling its use during the summer term, with a full roll out in September. For the first year, whilst we iron out the teething problems, pupils will still be issued with a pupil planner.
If you have any questions about this particular initiative, please do not hesitate to contact us at the school.
