Good Homework Habits

  • Following on from the meet the teacher sessions last week, where expectations for homework were discussed, here are some helpful tips that you can talk about with your child.

  • Find a quiet place at home to use as a homework area. It needs a flat surface, a good light source and the right equipment e.g. pens, pencils, ruler.

  • Create a homework timetable and agree on when your child will do their homework (this is particularly important for Year 6 children in preparation for secondary school).

  • Discuss any homework tasks with your child and how it connects with what they are studying at school.

  • Turn off the TV, but you could have music on if they find it helpful.

  • Don’t give your child the answer in order to get a task finished. Instead, explain how to look up information or find a word in a dictionary.

  • Don’t let homework become a chore. Keep it fun and make it a special time that you both look forward to.

If you have any questions or need some advice please speak to your class teacher.
