Being an avid reader of @mathsjem’s resourceaholic blog, especially her maths gems, I’m often inspired to try something out.  This time, from gems 30, was the homework expectations. I still get frustrated by pupils lack of presentation skills, despite reminding them of our school’s presentation for learning rules (which are in a bullet point list).  It’s not just following the rules, but the attitude it reflects in their learning, and therefore the expectation of achievement they give themselves.  I hope that if I expect excellence, then pupils can achieve excellence!

So for me to expect excellence in their presentation, I don’t just want a list of rules, but a model to what excellence looks like.  I will start trialling using this model in the next few weeks (with a tweak or two to the design and colours) with the aim of launching it with my classes in September, and a focus on presentation for learning in those first few lessons and home learning.
