Tips for parents for good homework habits

  • Do find a quiet place at home to use as a homework area. It needs a flat surface, a good light source and the right equipment eg pens, pencils, ruler, scissors, glue.
  • Do be aware of modern teaching methods, eg in long division.
  • Do plan a homework timetable and agree on when your child will do their homework.
  • Do allow your child to have something nutritional to eat before starting on homework.
  • Do discuss any homework tasks with your child and how it connects with what they are studying at school.
  • Do turn off the TV - but you could have music on if they find it helpful.
  • Don't give your child the answer in order to get a task finished. Instead, explain how to look up information or find a word in a dictionary.
  • Don't teach your child methods you used at school. It could confuse them.
  • Don't let homework become a chore. Keep it fun and make it a special time that you both look forward

Having trouble getting started?  Have you reached a stumbling block?  Perhaps you just fancy some learning fun?

 

REMEMBER we have a homework club and our school doors open at 8.45am - plenty of time to ask for some help from your teacher or learning support.

 

A little every day will help you learn, learn, learn. Try doing these at home -

  • Practise phonics, letters and sounds
  • Read a range of texts - any thing goes! Then tell someone what you liked/disliked about it! Recommend a book to someone else.
  • Handwriting practise
  • Visit the local library
  • Practise multiplication, addition, subtraction and division - chant your tables when ever you can. Songs can help here!
  • Use money when you go shopping - not too much though!!
