Teachers use homework as a valuable tool in training children to complete set work independently. However, there are many ways in which you can help.

Homework Suggestions:

  1. Help schedule a time to do homework, showing that it is an important priority and that you value its worth.
  2. If possible, provide a conducive atmosphere in which to work.
  3. Help set up an area where there is good lighting, and material to work with (pencils, ruler, dictionary).
  4. Let your child work on their own, but let them know you are available to help and to discuss homework requirements.
  5. Be aware that there is a difference between being a resource and consultant as opposed to hovering over your child with constant advice.
  6. Be available to check the final product.
  7. If possible, help your child to see how this particular assignment or skill relates to everyday life and life skills.
  8. Remember, nothing can help like a hug, smile and a word of approval. Be encouraging and supportive. Your attitude is contagious.

If you find that your child is unable to cope with the amount of homework set, do not hesitate to speak with the class teacher concerned.
