Homework

Teachers may set homework activities. Children are expected to complete these tasks to the best of their ability. When homework is given then it is an expectation that it is done neatly and on time. Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher if there are any problems. For all children reading, learning spelling and consolidating number facts constitutes an important part of the daily homework routine.
We aim to make homework effective by ensuring it:

  • Is clearly related to class work
  • Is appropriate to particular years of schooling
  • Is varied and differentiated to individual learning needs
  • Consolidates, revises and/or applies students’ classroom learning
  • Develops students’ independence as a learner through extension activities such as investigating, researching, writing, designing, making
  • Assists students to prepare for upcoming classroom learning, such as collecting relevant materials and information, completing surveys and audits 
  • Is monitored by the teacher
