“I don’t have any homework,” claimed the child to their parent. “I’ll ask your teacher,” replies the parent. Sound familiar? In my room you should be expecting to see a variety of school work coming home during the term.
Parents should see the following each week day:
- Basic facts sheets (quick-fire maths questions, takes about five minutes a night)
- Spelling words to practise (these are the words your child is currently learning, takes about 10 mins)
- Studyladder activities (online activities to support your child’s learning, takes about 10 mins).
Parents may see class work that hasn’t been finished during the week, for example:
- Reading activities
- Maths exercises
- Topic work.
You could always ask your child to bring their books home to see. It will give you a good idea of how they’re going with their learning. And now you know they do have school work you should be regularly seeing at home.
