Show My Homework
Show My Homework – launched to pupils this week and a parents evening for information scheduled for Tuesday 20th at 6pm. Already many departments are using this and pupils have demonstrated for me the use of the App on their phones. Our aim is threefold;
1. increase in homework completion and quality through use of technology with pupils
2. parental support, engagement and communication
3. and ease of use and long term efficiency of work for teachers
An article was featured in the Evening telegraph on Friday highlighting the system to all and was very positive for Morgan Academy.
A new way to record, track and monitor homework at Morgan Academy.
We are excited to be launching Show My Homework, an online tool to help you keep track of your child’s homework. Show My Homework will allow you to see the details of the tasks your child has been set, as well as their submission status and grades.
You will be provided with login details to your personal account, ready-linked to your child’s homework calendar. These logins will be sent out 3 weeks after launching but don’t worry you will still be able to view all homework.
You will also be able to login by following this link and clicking the top right ‘Login’ button.
View quality and quantity of homework
Translation into over 50 languages
Free apps available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android devices

We are delighted to introduce our new Modern Languages Assistant. Jérôme is from the north west of France and will be living and working in Dundee until June. His job is to encourage as many Morgan Academy pupils to speak as much French as possible. Speaking another language can help you to find jobs in Scotland and around the world and can help you to get on to lots of different university courses. This term he will be working with S1, S3, S4 and S5 and in the New Year he will begin working with S2. There are lots of classes so you will only see him only once a month in class with your teacher. He is also going to Glebelands, Clepington, Dens Road and Rosebank Primary Schools so he may see some of your younger brothers and sisters there too. He enjoys films and martial arts and is studying English and Chinese at University. We hope he has a fantastic year and we all learn lots of extra French.
Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award
Congratulations to our Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Group ,Pamela Smith 6A, Paul Maitland 6C , Ross Pellow 6M, Megan Grier 6M & Marceli Guziewicz 6M, and to our new sixth years: Iona Hunt 6M2, Jamie White 6C1 & Shonagh Quinton 6A2, who successfully completed their four-day assessment expedition on the Great Glen Canoe Trail from Fort William to Inverness during the first week of the summer holidays. They were lucky to have a following wind for most of their journey and were able to take advantage of their sails to help to speed them on their way. The day after completing their expedition, they had a civic reception in the City Chambers where they gave an entertaining account of their adventures to Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex. Many thanks to all who supported our fund raising to make both of our expeditions a success. Thanks also go to Mr Spencer, our canoe instructor, and both Mrs Spencer and Mrs Bowser who helped on this trip. Thanks also to Mr Sweeting who was our assessor.
