Homework

 

Homework provides students with opportunities to consolidate their classroom learning, pattern behaviour for lifelong learning beyond the classroom and involve family members in their learning. Home study does not consist only of written work.  It includes reading, spelling and tables and revision of all school work.  Children whose parents thoughtfully provide them with a suitable area at home away from the distractions of television etc assist their children tremendously. The setting of homework takes into account the need for students to have a balanced lifestyle.

Homework that enhances student learning:

  • is purposeful and relevant to student needs
  • is appropriate to their phase of learning
  • is appropriate to the capability of the student
  • develops the student’s independence as a learner
  • is varied, challenging and clearly related to class work
  • allows for student commitment to recreational, employment, family and cultural activities.
