Years ago, homework was reserved for secondary school but these days, due to the pace of our world and the size of our curriculums, homework can come home from the age of four!
Homework can be a real struggle if time is limited (when is time not limited?) or when the enthusiasm is just not there for one reason or another. Also, at primary level, homework means parental input, a new task that appears in your world when your child starts school.
Homework tasks set from school (at a primary level) should either be a bit of preparation for a lesson that is coming (maybe a bit of research) or some consolidation work based on something that has already been taught. It can also be about supporting the basics (multiplication tables, reading practise and spellings).
