Nature of Homework


Homework is a balance of different types of activity. As well as formal work it will include collecting, observing, recording and various exploratory activities. The duration of homework will vary according to the nature of the task set and the ability and attention span of each child. The level of difficulty relates directly to the child's ability and activities are sufficiently open-ended to allow each child to work to his/her own potential. Homework is not confined to specific subjects but embraces all curricular areas.
