At Woodbridge, teachers set PPR tasks rather than homework. These are tasks which need to be completed outside of lessons. PPR stands for ‘Practice, Preparation and Retrieval’. Students are set PPR tasks on Firefly. PPR tasks allow students to consolidate, practise and revise content and skills learnt in lessons.
Completed PPR tasks will be acknowledged and used in lessons. This could be done in a range of ways, e.g. by using targeted questioning, low-stakes testing, self or peer-assessments, mini-whiteboards or whole class feedback.
Our aim is to ensure that all tasks done outside of lessons are meaningful, purposeful and impactful.
