How to change the upcoming homework length for a class

Changing the length of the next homework due to go out for a class

Sometimes it may be necessary to change the homework length for a whole class in a particular week. To do this, follow these steps:

  • Click on the Planner icon on the left of the screen
  • Select the class whose homework you wish to edit from the filters at the top of the screen, and the week you wish to edit 
  • To change the duration of the homework click the Type dropdown and choose from Full length, Half length, or Optional only. Please note: regardless of homework length set, Half length will always correspond to 30 minutes of homework.

Note: Making changes to the upcoming homework in Planner will not affect subsequent homework assignments. 


If you would like to change the default length of homework that your classes will receive, please get in touch at schoolsupport@sparx.co.uk and we can set a new homework length to any 10-minute increment between 30-90 minutes of homework for you.
