At MIHS we use ‘Show My Homework’ as the principle way of setting homework. Student planners act as a backup to record and check that homework’s are completed on time.
The Purpose of Homework
* Consolidate, reinforce and extend classroom learning.
* Develop skills, confidence and motivation which will support independent lifelong learning.
* Enable students to manage their time and the demands of coursework.
* Inform and involve parents in their children’s learning.
What is SMHW?
Show My Homework (SMHW) is an online package that enables students and parents to access all of the homework tasks that students are set each week. The system provides access to all the learning resources needed for each homework, helps organise homework and gives a guide to how long should be spent on each piece of work. SMHW can be accessed via the link on this website (the blue icons on the left) , SMHW App or by following this link:
Students need to login to use the full features of SMHW. Student’s login by using their normal MIHS email account and by entering the password which they saved. This allows parents to access and view the homework set. If students have forgotten their login details they can get them from their form tutor or by calling SMHW directly. SMHW App is also available for smart phones and tablets (iOS & Android) which will allow students and parents to view homework at any time.
