The new school year has just started and along with it the return of school homework!


Schools have different amounts of homework depending on how they view homework – as a tool for children to develop responsibility, practise new learning and cover the curriculum.


If you want to help, then ask the class teacher how best you can do this. There are lots of revision guides available online and in high street bookshops for all school age groups and these explain clearly the different curriculum areas for each year at school. They also provide additional practice questions with answers and explanations, so you can understand exactly what’s being taught to your child and how to do it. In addition you can also try free online support resources, such as for maths: BBC Bitesize (www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ ks2/maths) and Maths Is Fun (www.mathsisfun.com).


Your child needs to know that you are interested in their homework; encourage them to show it to you so they know you are there to help them if they need it. Ask your school for guidance on how much help to give and what you should be helping with and not. If you still feel unsure, ask your class teacher – they will be pleased to help a caring parent trying to support their child.
