Home Study during any School Closure

Throughout the partical closure of the school we will be updating our e-Platforms daily.
Students will be expected to log on to Show My Homework (SMH) and Google Classroom daily.
Google ClassroomShow My Homework
Teachers will be setting work remotely on Show My Homework and Google Classroom for daily completion. A 75 minute lesson will be set by teachers for every timetabled subject you would study on each particular day - exactly as if you were in school.

Google Sign In NB: Students should always ensure that they are logged into their school Google Account, rather than a personal one, when working outside school to enable them to access school platforms.
Log out of your Personal Google Account BEFORE logging into your School Account.

Your Google login consists of your usual computer log in plus the '@cchs.school' extension.
Eg. YYsurnamefirstinitial@cchs.school - where the YY is the year that you joined CCHS in Year 7

Year 11 Students - The Path Ahead

All exams have been cancelled and the latest government announcement on this can be found HERE
If Year 11 students still have any outstanding coursework subjects we would encourage them to complete this at home; it is imperative that this is completed to the best of their ability. Coursework material will now form an important part of students' examwork and will be used to provide the exam boards with predicted grades.
Students are being contacted by their teachers with information on what they need to complete and can gain assistance from their teacher by contacting them through Show My Homework.

Year 11 into Year 12 - Visit our new Transition Webpage

We strongly suggest that students now begin work on their next phase of education and should now begin reading up on their chosen courses, preparing for September 2020.
We have set up a new webpage for all Year 11 students, whether they will be joining Sigma Sixth, going to College or starting an Apprenticeship.
• Any student who is planning to stay at CCHS, and progress into our new Sigma Sixth Form at Tendring Education Centre, should start working through all of the Induction Tasks for the subjects that they plan to study.
• There are also numerous links to various websites with useful information for all Year 11 students.

Show My Homework

Show My HomeworkShow my Homework is the e-platform normally used by our teachers for setting homework and will now be utilised for notifying students of the work that they need to complete each day of homestudy.

Every student has been issued with a Show My Homework Username and Password.

If you have requested a new pin number to enable you to access your account, please be aware that this is a SINGLE USE CODE and you must set up your account with an email address and your own password.

Students will need to access their 'Show My Homework' account daily and work through the lessons that teachers have created. Lessons may include reading, activities to do, worksheets to complete or a power point presentations to work through.

Teachers may set a Mathswatch task; if so, they will remind you in SMHW to go log onto Mathswatch.

If you complete quizzes, your teacher will be able to see how well each student has done straight away.  You will also be able to see your score and may have multiply chances to try to improve it.

Send a message from SHMYou can send a message to your teacher if you need help or do not understand the task.  This conversation is only visible to you, your parents or carers and the teacher (not a whole class ‘chat’).
Message NotificationYou can only write a comment or message to your teacher whilst you are in the homework. If you write to your teacher, you should get a response in about 24 hours. You will see a notification like this.

Google Classroom

Google ClassroomSome teachers already use Google Classroom with classes – if this is how you usually work, then check into your lesson in the normal way.
Teachers have also been asked to remind you about your Google classroom in SMHW.

Seneca LearningSENECA.com is a useful revision tool – especially for GCSE classes although there are KS3 courses in some subjects.
As this is a revision tool it is subject knowledge based.  There are questions for you to answer as well as knowledge to learn.
Your teachers will leave you a message in SMHW giving you the code for your group so that you can join the Seneca class. Teachers can track how many questions you complete to monitor success rate and engagement.
There is no facility to add comments / support within SENECA so teachers cannot give you feedback.


Office 365Computer Science teacher use OneNote with classes. This is part of Microsoft's Office 365 Suite – if this is how you usually work, then check into your lesson in the normal way.
