As per the homework policy in the school the recommended time for 4th class homework is 40 mins. Please let me know via the homework journal if there are any issues with homework. Here are some tips to make homework a more pleasurable experience for all involved.

-For Irish comprehensions, encourage your child to be a detective and try to find the key words of the questions in the text. All the answers are there and encourage your child to have a go. Mistakes are proof that they are trying.

-Make sure the child is not hungry or very tired when starting on homework. Provide a snack and or rest before expecting the child to start homework.

-Have a specific time and place for homework. Stick to this routine consistently and explain it to the child. If necessary, use the clock to show how long the homework will take. The setting should be quiet. TV/ Playstation etc should be switched off. Ensure your child has all the necessary books and equipment before beginning.

- Try and remain calm and positive with your child.

- Praise and encourage your child throughout the homework session.

-For children with attention/reading difficulties, consider breaking homework into chunks with brief movement breaks.

-For writing exercises, if child is becoming frustrated write the beginning of the sentence and encourage him/her to finish, or write some words and encourage him/her to fill in the blanks.

-If your child is struggling to read a sentence, give them the word and move on.

-Keep me informed of difficulties that your child may be having with homework, particularly if the homework seems to take a long time or if the child often has difficulty in a particular subject area.
