Work at home may take a variety of forms. The important factor is that all homework must provide educative experiences that centre around the interests of the child to add to their learning experience. We encourage children to undertake voluntary tasks to make use of their acquired skills in a way appropriate to their age and interests. Targeted activities may form part of this experience as part of an Individual Support Plan.
Children are encouraged to read (or be read to) each day for interest and enjoyment. Books can be borrowed from the school library.
Work at home may range from arithmetical puzzles for the child who enjoys working in this area, to another finding satisfaction in writing real letters to friend, or yet others who are naturally interested in the media or collecting things – at first indiscriminately and later for rarity, identification, classifications or exhibition purpose. Importantly, children should to enjoy home activities.
