Homework serves several purposes:
- Homework consolidates schoolwork.
- Homework is an opportunity to develop independent working.
- It enables parents to engage with their child’s academic learning.
There may be no homework on Fridays or on special occasions. The infant class teachers will meet with parents every September/October to discuss helping their children with schoolwork at home. Homework can be an important part of your child’s progress. The homework your child receives will generally be based on previously covered work in school. It will seldom be unfamiliar or new work. Please talk to your child’s teacher if homework is a problem.
