Homework will be handed out tomorrow and expected for Friday (instead of Thursday!).

Homework usually consists of spelling, numeracy and sometimes one other curricular area (Health & Wellbeing, French, etc.)

I understand there is a fierce national debate on the value of homework but it is meant to reflect the work we do in class and it is NOT meant to cause stress (Homework here is less than what other schools get). For ease,  try doing homework over a few days.

It is also used as an assessment tool – Can the children complete the homework accurately? Do they remember what to do? Can they do it with/without help? If there are issues this is NOT a bad thing thing; it tells me that I need to recap or revisit the prior learning before we move on to the next new learning.  As children ‘learn by doing’  I strongly believe that practice makes perfect!
