Dear parents and students,

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to Year 10 IGCSE Business Studies!

This is a two year course which covers a wide variety of business theory and its practical application. This will then culminate with students completing the IGCSE Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) in the summer term of their second year.

Students will be given end of unit tests, assignments, projects, classwork and homework all to assess their level of understanding and identify areas of weakness or strength. These will be alongside the departmental assessment cycle.

Students: Use this site and 'Google Drive' to keep up to date with what you need to achieve success on the course.

Parents: This is a great way to see what your child is accomplishing in class.

Independent Learning and Homework

Independent learning

Each week, you should be dedicating at least (2) hours to additional study

    • Some of this will be set homework tasks
    • Some of this will be your own research and reading on the topics being taught in class
    • Ms. Asmaa and I are available throughout the school day if you need any help

If you do not study or complete work outside of lesson time you risk failure!

Homework

Homework is any work or activity which students are asked to do outside lesson time either on their own or with parents.

Why we give homework?

  • To encourage students to develop the confidence and self-discipline to work on their own, an essential skill for adult life.
  • To consolidate and reinforce skills and understanding.
  • To extend school learning, for example through additional reading

Types of homework

Homework might include such things as:

1. Writing assignments.

2. Learning assignments.

3. Preparing an oral presentation.

4. Reading in preparation for a lesson.

5. Finding out information/researching a project.

Non completion of homework within the set deadline will incur sanctions in line with the school policy.
