Homework is given
• to re-inforce what the child learns during the day
• to provide a link between teacher and parent
• to develop a child's concentration skills and develop a work ethic.
Children are expected to do their homework to the best of their individual ability - no more, no less. These are guidelines for the amount of time to be spent on homework:
Junior Infants: 0 - 10 minutes
Senior Infants Up to 20 minutes
1st / 2nd class up to 30 minutes
3rd / 4th class up to 40 minutes
5th / 6th class up to one hour.
Homework is given Monday - Thursday
If homework is a stressful experience between parent and child, something is wrong!
This leads to poor learning and defeats the whole purpose.
Should this happen on a regular basis please contact the class Teacher.
