Bullying and Cyberbullying What We Need to Know; A Reference Guide For Parents and Guardians

There is also a grade 4-6 Let's Talk About Homework pamphlet...

The Department of Education will also be releasing a P-3 pamphlet, but it will NOT be referred to as homework is not formally required until grade 4.
The department of education states..." In primary to grade 3, formal homework is not required. Teachers can and often do provide families with regular access to books that may be read with young students. This practice supports the cultivation of a love of learning and sharing is encouraged. Teachers may also offer activities for students to complete at home, such as math games. However, such activities should not be regarded as a requirement. Teachers should communicate with parents/guardians about how learning can be supported at home without the formal demand for homework."
