Purpose

Children perform at their best when home and school work together. Homework should also be enjoyable for the child involved and should stimulate imagination and creativity as well as reinforcing what is taught in the classroom. Homework can cover a very wide range of activities, depending on the age of the child, but throughout the primary years a consistent emphasis will be put on reading for pleasure and purpose as part of homework.

Aims

  • Encourage a positive attitude towards learning
  • Consolidate and reinforce what is learnt in the classroom
  • Build up basic skills (particularly reading, writing and numeracy)
  • Encourage curious and independent learners
  • Develop good study habits
  • Prepare children for the next stage of education
  • Provide opportunities for parents and carers to be actively involved in their child’s education

Typical Homework
