Homework is assigned to all students in every year level at Sydenham-Hillside Primary School. The allocation of homework activities and the amount of time allocated per student is based on the year level and DET guidelines. It will be important to note that individual needs of students will be taken into consideration and there may be the need to vary the type and amount of homework for some students.
An important part of weekly homework is nightly reading. In the lower years this should be with an adult. Children in the upper years should read independently and parents should try to hear them read as needed.
The information about homework is also included in the Year level information booklets that are also on the website.
