Children in Years 1 to 6 are set homework on a weekly basis. It is given out on a Wednesday and should be returned the following Monday morning.
|Find a quiet place at home which your child can use as a homework area. It needs to have a flat surface so that your child can write.|
|Turn off the television, when your child is doing homework, so that it is not a distraction.|
|Ask your child about the homework they are doing, ask them to explain it to you.|
|Don't give your child the answer so that they get the work finished quickly, show them how to look up a word in a dictionary.|
|Become familiar with modern teaching methods (for example, subtraction). Don't teach your child the methods you used in school as this might confuse them.|
|Try and keep homework fun, it should be a special time that you both look forward to.|

As well as written homework, children in Claremont Primary School are often set online homework. To access this your child will usually have to use one of the following websites:
Your child has been given a username and password for these sites. They must not share their usernames or passwords with their friends and they must never log on as anybody else. If they do so, their accounts will be disabled. If you would like their username and password, please speak to your child's class teacher.
