Homework can be a challenge for both children and parents alike. Your child's teachers will be the best point of call for any learning queries, as they are full of innovative ideas that will relate specifically to your child's learning. Some CCGPS schools also offer homework clubs to assist children and their parents. We have, however, included a series of resources that may support you and your child when faced with those tough questions or queries at home.
