Our approach to homework is one where we believe that homework should complement our learning in school and not be a stressful experience at home.

Parents are key educators in their children’s lives and have a critical influence over the success of children’s learning. We suggest that in the early stages of a child’s school life at least 10 minutes is set aside each day to talk to your child about their learning, to read with your child, play games and develop their self-help skills.

As your child moves through the Primary phase they will begin to have more formal tasks such as learning multiplication tables and spellings, projects; and be expected to work for longer periods and with increasing independence.

Homework can also be a walk in the park, a swimming trip, baking, an art activity, visiting family.
