homeworkNot all class teachers provide homework. Activities you might like to provide for your child might include watching the news, sport, having conversations, cooking etc.

The benefit of homework in the primary school is the opportunity it provides for children to share their learning with parents. It also provides a means for children to accept responsibility for some learning outside the classroom, particularly in the upper grades.

It loses value when it becomes a tedious chore without relevance to the child. Homework is not intended as an imposition but rather as an indication to children that learning is a whole-of-life process.

Homework reinforces learning that has occurred in the classroom, homework will never be 'new learning'. It may include Rainbow Facts learning, Reading, Oxford 404 sight word learning or tasks that develop important core skills.
