Homework

Homework is an essential part of the learning process for your child and has many benefits.

Parents and caregivers can help by:

  • Assisting in the child’s learning by giving time to listening to their child read.
  • Guiding the children in their homework – not doing their homework for them.
  • Ensuring that there is time set aside each night for homework.
  • Ensuring and supporting students to complete homework.
  • Providing where possible, a dedicated place and desk for homework and study.
  • Encouraging the children to read and take an interest in current events.
  • Assisting teachers in monitoring homework by signing completed work if requested in addition to becoming aware of the amount of homework set.
  • Communicating with teachers any concerns about the nature of homework their children’s approach to the homework.

Students can help by:

  • Being aware of the importance of homework.
  • Completing homework within the given time frame.
  • Alerting parents and caregivers to homework expectations.
  • Seeking assistance from teachers/parents/caregivers when difficulties arise.
  • Showing their homework to their parents/caregivers.
  • Completing homework to the best of their ability – homework should be neat, complete and handed in on time.
  • Organising their time to ensure that enough time can be given each night to complete homework in time for each Friday.
  • Working independently as much as they can to maximise educational benefits of homework.
  • Trying all questions/parts of homework
