Homework is a very important part of a child's education and provides pupils with a good opportunity to revise content learned in school.

By fifth and sixth class, it is expected that children take responsibility for their own homework and strive to independently complete each task to their best of their abilities. At times, pupils may need to ask for help or support, but most work should be completed by themselves.

Homework should be part of the child's weekly routine. It is advised that homework should start at the same time each day, preferably as soon as they arrive home or soon-after. Leaving homework till late can prove difficult as they lose focus and concentration. Homework should also be completed in a quiet area in the house, to avoid disturbances. 

At fifth class level, homework should take 1 hour.

At sixth class level, homework should take around 1 hour to 1 ½ hours.

Please ensure that the homework diary is signed each night and that the child records how long they spent doing their homework.

Ní cheart go mbeadh an obair deacair ar an bpáiste nó ar an dtuismitheoir. If a pupil is experiencing trouble with the homework, please let me know.
