Branching out and growing together
How you can help your child
Your child will bring home work each week which may include reading, spellings, writing, maths and topic work. Your interest in this will increase their motivation and satisfaction. It should not take a great deal of time and it is important that you see the work is completed and returned to school. If you have any concerns about your child's progress or learning, you should speak to your child's teacher in the first instance.
Although homework can be completed by children independently, we suggest parents and carers are actively involved in supporting their children’s homework as this will make it most meaningful.
