Homework...

Why is homework important?

  • It can help pupils to make rapid progress in learning.
  • It can allow pupils to develop the practice of working on their own without the constant presence of the teacher or other pupils; without distraction.
  • Work at home can provide the quiet and private conditions needed for creative and thoughtful work of all kinds.
  • It can allow valuable practice of skills learned in the classroom.
  • It can allow pupils to use materials and other sources of information that are not always available in the classroom.
  • It can involve parents and others in the pupils’ work for their mutual benefit.
  • It extends the learning outside the classroom environment.
