Homework Week 3 Term 1 2015
The amount of time given to complete the tasks will vary depending on what is required. 20 minutes a night is a good guide, but children are very busy these days and if you don’t have time to fit the homework in some days, or your child is just too tired, that is fine.
Take a book home each night. You might get a book from your teacher, your group browsing box or from the library.
Get a member of your family (Mum, Dad, Grandma etc) to sign the reading log in your Book Bag.
Bring your Book Bag to school every day.
Books only go home in Book Bags.
