Types of Tasks

Homework can take a variety of forms, including: -

  • Reading
  • Research
  • Revising
  • Learning vocabulary and spelling
  • Completing or continuing coursework
  • Doing corrections following feedback from the teacher
  • Written work
  • On occasions an extended piece of work may be set over several weeks
How can you help?
  • Encourage your child to read as much and as often as possible
  • If possible, provide a quiet place for your child to complete their homework
  • Have spare pens, pencils etc. available
  • Either use your child’s planner or check the ShowMyHomework button at the top of the page to find out what tasks have been set and when the teacher is expecting the work to be done by. Encourage him to complete the work on the night that the task is set, rather that leaving it till the “last minute”
