Top Tips for Successful Home Learning
Make sure you know what to do: When your teacher sets you homework, if you're confused, make sure you ask questions!
Do the tough stuff first: Try doing the difficult work first so you won't have to do the hardest bits when you've been working for a while and are tired.
Turn off the TV: Stay away from the TV because it will only distract you and if you've always got one eye on it, homework time will last double as long.
Make sure you have everything you need: You'll only waste time getting up and down if you haven't got pencils, paper, rubbers etc. Collect all the stationery you need before you start your work.
Call your friends for help: It might be useful to talk to your friends about things you don't understand, but try not to drift into other topics of conversation. Agree to only discuss homework and then agree to speak after you have both finished your work that evening.
Try not to get frustrated: If you're finding homework very difficult, take a break. Have a drink or something to eat and maybe ask your parents for some help.
Don't stay up late working: Try to start your homework soon after you get home and have the rest of the evening free to relax. If you have a test, try to get an early night, it will probably be better for your performance than staying up all night revising.
