Your child's teacher will be able to explain what the homework expectations for each class will be. Learning at home may include, dependent on your child's age, reading, learning of spellings, learning of multiplication tables and occasional IPC research. Children may occasionally be required to complete work that remains unfinished from class.
Children's progress in reading is a vital key to their success in school. Your child's teacher can give you specific advice on your child's reading progress and support. However, for all children, the following advice can be followed:
- Children read best in a quiet, comfortable and relaxed environment with as few distractions as possible.
- If either you or your child is tired, it is not an ideal time to read together.
- Children will usually respond best when encouraged to read rather than put under pressure.
- Reading together should be an enjoyable way to spend precious time with your child.
