Free Webinar: "Taking the hell out of homework" - strategies to support your child at home

Based on my book for parents of the same title, this webinar takes a very practical and pragmatic look at how to support children at home on typical homework tasks.


Thursday 10th June 2021
7:00pm - 8:00pm



We will look at learning spellings, doing comprehensions, reading together and learning for tests. Some ideas for "managing behaviour for homework" will also be discussed. This workshop has been presented in schools and to parent groups around the world, including Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Thailand.

Target Audience: Key Stage 1, 2 and 3
