Homework


We see homework as a vital link between home and school. Homework should be viewed by parents as an opportunity to share in your child’s developing skills. We believe that by working together we can ensure homework is a positive way to not only reinforce learning at school, but also to enhance relationships.

When surveying our community, we received a very strong message in favour of having homework. School procedures promote the setting of homework regularly so that children develop consistent work habits. The time required for completion of homework tasks varies, and increases with the age of the child.

Homework should not be a burden on the child or family. If homework is causing stress for you or your child, it is important to discuss the matter with the class teacher. Long term assignments and projects should be worked on regularly to allow completion by the set date.

Reading should form a regular part of your child’s homework, even if it is not stated on the outline sent home by your child’s teacher. Particularly in the junior classes, reading books sent home should be able to be read fluently by your child. Your child may not necessarily bring home a ‘new’ book every night; sometimes children may bring home familiar books, as this provides reinforcement and encourages fluency.
