It is school policy to give some homework each night. Homework plays an important role in the child’s daily education. It consolidates what the child has learned during the day and gives further time for practical application of work done during school time.
Homework should be of benefit, not a burden, to your child. It is important, therefore to regulate the amount of time spent each evening doing various exercises.
The benefits of homework will quickly be eroded away if the work is taking too long; therefore the following time scale for homework is recommended:
Junior/Senior Infants: 15-30 minutes
1st/2nd class: 30-45 minutes
3rd/4th class: 45 minutes – 1hr.
5th/6th class: 1hour – 1hr 20 min.
