Homework

Rationale:
 

Homework at Depot Hill State School aims to be an educationally enhancing experience with a strong focus on reading.  A reasonable amount of time for homework has been set so as not to create stress within already busy family routines, and to work hand-in-hand with our 3 after school programs.   

Homework is set for each year level on a weekly basis. 

The main focus for homework is reading. We suggest reading before bed, as reading at this time promotes a better sleep and as a result, a better day at school. Your child may have been given a small amount of written work as homework too. Here is the minimum for each week: 

Prep, Year 1 and 2: 5- 10 minutes of reading per night

Years 3 and 4: 10 minutes of reading per night (40 minutes a week total)

Years 5 and 6: 15 minutes reading per night (1 hour total) 

We encourage you to discuss and check homework with your child.
