Organising your studying / learning is very important. In school you are normally sat in classroom, a workshop or a science laboratory. This means it is easier to learn in school than at home because there are less distractions.

Using the table below list all the distractions that can happen at home, that make it difficult to do your homework. There is an example to help you start your list.

   

DISTRACTION: The TV is on all the time

 

HOW IT MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO WORK:

When I try to work there is always something on the TV that interests me. I cannot concentrate because I want to watch all the programmes, and my homework suffers.
