June holiday homework in primary schools

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

June holiday homework in primary schools

Postby whiteyess » Thu May 05, 2016 9:21 am

Hi parents with kids in primary schools, do your kids have a lot of holiday homework to do in June? Schools have now come up with a homework policy but I'm just wondering how effective they are..

Sometimes students have more homework during the holidays because their teacher or the class is a little slow. What should have been completed before the exams has not been done. So the outstanding work is given as holiday work for completeness sake.

Some weaker students are given more homework so that their parents/tutors can help during the "holiday" break from lessons.

On the other hand, some good students take tutorial lessons to stay ahead for the next semester. My neighbor is taking lessons with HomeSchool@East and he is 4th in the entire level this year. http://homeschooleast.wordpress.com

Schools always give some work so that the students do not completely slack off.
