Homework is one of the key milestones for achieving the level objectives
In Milton Keynes Russian School children are given to prepare their homework every week.
It can vary between a very basic and simple task such as colouring in the youngest class to a composition writing for older students.
Although we do appreciate that children attending the Russian School have other homework to do for their regular primary or secondary school, timely completing homework for the Russian School will help a child in developing the Russian language during the week, to pass the tests during the school year and to generally become better at understanding, talking and writing Russian. In addition it provides a great opportunity for parents to communicate with their children in Russian which is especially important for children in mixed families or to older children, whose native language is not Russian.
We trust all parents will appreciate our approach and ensure that the homework is done in a timely manner for each week. It is preferred for the homework to be done on weekdays after regular school. The main tasks can be split into small ones, for example, if the homework consists of several components such as drawing, memorising and writing, you could effectively split the work into various segments and let your child complete it, unit by unit, throughout the week without spending too much time on it.
