Homework is a very important aspect of your child’s education. By encouraging and helping your child to do their homework, you will be helping them to practice and extend the skills and knowledge learnt in school, whilst encouraging them to be an independent learner. Children whose parents get involved with their education will do better at school. There are many ways a parent can support their child with homework.
- Know how much homework your child should be doing at each stage of their education and make sure that they are doing this.
- Be interested; ask your child what tasks they have been set.
- Check your child’s book bag regularly and read their homework.
- Encourage your child to complete their homework sooner rather than leaving it to the last minute.
- Encourage your child to improve on their homework; are there any ways they could make their work better?
- Provide a quiet space for them to do their homework, where there is no television.
- It is very important to attend Parent Evenings, where the teachers will show you how you can help your child succeed. The school will advise you when Parent Evenings are happening.
- If your child requires lots of support or more challenge, please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher.
What to expect.
At Brington Primary, we have made the decision to place an emphasis on three core areas for homework:
Reading + Spelling + Times Tables
Please have a read of the information below which explains the expectations for each homework area, how teachers monitor completion of homework and also tips (including videos) which may provide assistance if required.
