The school has a general expectation for homework at all levels based on the following principles:
- Homework offers some consolidations, revision and practice of skills.
- It provides an important liaison between home and school, reinforcing the concept that learning is universal and not confined to classrooms.
- It helps establish autonomy and independence in learning.
Homework consists of tasks to consolidate the core skills in reading, spelling and mathematics basic facts.
It is important to note that no child should find homework a source of stress. Please contact your child's teacher if you sense that your child is frustrated or unable to cope. In addition, homework should not stop children from healthy, worthwhile pursuits outside of school time, such as involvement in sports.
