No homework

An improvement in student's abilities at spelling and tables has been noticed by teachers at a school that has scrapped written homework.

A trial at primary school in Dublin is underway, after discussions about stress caused by homework.

Students are still encouraged to read and do spellings and tables, while 6th class pupils still have to do written work.

Principal of Loreto Primary School in Rathfarnham, Sr Maria Hyland says they've noticed several benefits.

"Certainly our teachers are finding that the children are more relaxed in the morning coming to school.

"And also they find that the oral work, there has been a great increase; and that the children really know the spellings - both in their Irish and English - and the tables".

"Teachers are very happy and seeing a definite improvement in that area".
