Other Tips for success in homework
- Ask your child about their homework, they are being set it!
- Use a timer, most adolescent brains can only work for 30 minutes at a time! Set a timer for them to work for 25 minutes, and then have 5 minutes off to do something of their own or get a snack, then repeat! This works well for studying as well!
- The best environment for students to get their homework done is on a tabled surface (for example kitchen table or desk), do NOT let them do their homework on their bed, it effects their sleeping habits!
- TOP TIP: Revise every night for 5 minutes even if there is not homework, this will help your child remember their work from the day and will help them in the long run!
