Homework


At BJR, the purpose of homework is to;

  • Consolidate learning - Revise, practise and memorise skills and learning from school
  • Promote partnerships with parents - shared experience
  • Give children an opportunity to apply learning in new contexts and to new problems
  • Be meaningful without impacting on positive family experiences
  • Promote independence and choice (good life skills)
  • Homework should be at an appropriate level for the child
