Homework Overview

Take-Home Reading

Reading is an essential part to any child's learning is part of homework for all children across the school.   The Take-Home Reading Record Sheet (below) gives information on what children read and for how long depending on their level.  We have a huge diversity of take-home readers as we value children being engaged and interested in their reading.

Contextual Activities

On occasion, the teacher may assign homework tasks that link to a topic, unit or work in the classroom.  eg. draw the phases of the moon for that week. 

Choice Activity

Each week, all classes provide several activities of which 1 is to be chosen by the student.  The idea is for children and parents to select the activity that is most relevant to their needs and interest that further supports their learning.
Mathletics/Mathseeds, Reading Eggs/Eggsrpess
Mathletics and Reading Eggs are also great support online software and is usually part of the Choice Activity.  If you need the login and password for your child please feel free to contact your teacher.
The choice activity should be around 20 minutes for the week.

Optional Activity

Each week, all classes provide optional activities that children may wish to participate in.  This activity is not compulsory and should only be completed if of interest to the child.

Mandatory Homework Activity

All classes have the option of up to 1 routine Mandatory Homework Activity in addition to the activities list above..  This may vary from class to class (eg. Sight Words, Spelling, Basic Facts etc.) and for some classes/year levels there may be no additional mandatory homework activity as the activities above may be sufficient.
