Homework Ideas

9/08/2019
At Harris Fields State School we view homework as:
 
Providing students with opportunities to consolidate their classroom learning, pattern behaviour for lifelong learning beyond the classroom and involve family members in their learning. We believe a balance of family and recreation and cultural activities is essential for developing capable and confident citizens. The setting of homework takes into account the need for students to have a
balanced lifestyle.
 
The only homework expected from all students is home reading. Reading is an essential skill in life and research has proven that effective readers are avid readers who consistently practice.
 
For Year3-6, homework may also include the meaning of and spelling ten new words from their reading each week.
