You can expect your child to have homework beginning early in Primary school. Homework consists of activities and exercises designed to reinforce concepts and skills that have already been taught in the classroom. Homework is assigned that students can generally complete on their own at home. It will reinforce class work. The amount of homework assigned is normally increased from grade to grade; however, this will vary depending upon the ability and level of achievement of each individual.
A Homework Diary/Communication Book will be sent home with your child during the second month of school. This book will help students and their parents to note events and to keep track of assignments and tests. This is an excellent form of daily communication between home and school we ask that parents' sign as indicated showing the appropriate notes have been viewed by both student and parent.
