The second benefit is that it can bring families closer together as students may ask their parents or siblings for help on their homework.
Not only will this help the students get a better understanding of their work with any parts they are stuck on, it will also allow parents to get more involved in their child's educational life.
The first reason that children should not be given homework is that they need time to relax and take their minds off work.
The pressure of having to complete homework every night is quite daunting for most children and they need time to refresh their minds and bodies.
They then end up being rewarded for cheating which doesn't benefit them at all.
And finally, a lot of teachers don't often have the time to grade papers properly as they are too busy with designing lesson plans and consulting teaching resources in order to just manage lessons.
In the meantime, last year’s packs are still available to download and use.
Themed around ‘journeys’, our activity packs provide easy-to-do, hands-on activities that parents and teachers can easily run with their students and children.
So by the time students are getting their papers back, the class has moved on to a new topic.
Year 4 are also very lucky to have other adults that teach us and support our learning. Our School Council have chosen a name for each class.
