A small amount of homework can be expected from children in all grades to reinforce learning undertaken in school and to promote good study habits. It is important that parents play a supervisory / helping role with children doing home tasks. Should your child have problems with the task set, please let the teacher know.
Homework may include spelling lists/sight words, reading and numeracy activities. Younger grades often take home small books to read for homework. Parents should take this opportunity to listen to the child read and to discuss the book with the child. Upper classes may, from time to time, have unit tasks to complete.
