Show my homework
Show My Homework is an online tool for viewing and setting homework, and is used by staff, students and parents/carers.
Each child should receive an information sheet about getting started on Show My Homework, with a pin number for parents to also view what homework is being set.
Students must visit: orchardschool.showmyhomework.co.uk, and login by clicking on the red g+ button and inputting the same email address and password they use for their school Gmail account.
Tip: We advise that your child logs in to their Gmail account in a separate tab before logging in to Show My Homework.
For parents, they need to visit showmyhomework.co.uk/pin and enter their pin code (which you will be able to find on the information sheet sent home with your child).
If you have not received this login information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Did you know that there is a Show My Homework app? You can download it by searching 'Show My Homework' on your phone's app store.
Supporting with Homework
If your child is finding homework difficult, encourage them to give it a go even if they don’t think they are getting it right. Making mistakes often leads to better understanding.
If they are getting very upset, tell them to stop. Attempting to carry on will only increase anxiety. Please write a note or email the class teacher to ensure that they can support them with this piece of work.
Skipping homework should not become a regular event. Please be aware that children can be very good at finding excuses that might have been true, yet if you hear the same excuse regularly you may wish to question them!
For some useful resources to support your child with their homework, check out the relevant subject area on our curriculum pages.
We run a homework club for our students every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 2.55 - 3.55pm in the school library.
