Homework: Time Management Tips

Homework: Time Management Tips - Moving up to secondary school means the amount of homework you receive will begin to increase, so you'll have to become good at time management. It's important to keep on top your homework so you can get everything done on time. Watch our expert, David Littlemore, as he gives you his top homework time management tips.

Step 1: Get organised

Use your diary or personal organiser to keep track of your homework. Be careful to record the date it was set, the teacher who set it, and when it is due by. Make sure you also write clearly what you need to do so that you can understand it when you come to complete the work later.

Step 2: Do difficult tasks first

Difficult tasks will take you longer, so begin them well before the deadline. This will give you time to work through any problems you have with the work and will allow you time to return to the teacher to ask questions if there is something you don't understand.

Step 3: Take regular breaks

You should aim to take a 10 minute break for every hour of work. This will give your brain time to refresh and help you be more alert when you return to the task. When you take a break, leave the room you're working in and do something completely different - go for a short walk, have a snack or phone a friend.
