Any activity related to the school programme that learners are asked to complete outside of lesson time at school and that can take place in the home or in the community. The type of homework set by schools varies. In the early years, activities are usually based on supporting literacy, numeracy and thinking skills. In the junior phase of learning, homework is more likely to focus on reading, revising, report writing, investigating and project work. Learners in the senior years are likely to undertake a range of homework activities dependent on the course of study being completed.
