Homework

In accordance with the Department’s P-12 Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Framework, Heatley School has a Homework Policy.  Homework at Heatley is not compulsory; however your class teacher will provide a homework program for your child if requested.
The best homework is to read every day. It doesn’t have to be a book. Magazines, newspapers, recipes, instructions etc anything that interests a child. Research shows us that reading more improves performance in: general knowledge, vocabulary, reading comprehension, verbal fluency and spelling. Just 20 minutes spent reading every day can open a child up to over 600,000 words in a year!
