Those with kiddos at school, how much homework do your children get (and remind me what age they are please)?

Daniel has brought home a sheet with 8 homework objectives for the spring term!! That and he has to read 5 times a week, and it's not just reading, they give you things to look for and discuss or comprehension questions to do with them as well!!

It's blooming ridiculous when he has his own personal targets and we're still trying to teach him personal care stuff like fastening his own coat and using cutlery, which surely is more important?!

I have no idea when we're going to fit it all in, I really don't!

Seperate it and do a bit a week Sharron.

Alyssa is 5 and in year one. She gets 2 reading books a week (Mon, Wed, Fri) and she reads them at least twice. On a weekend she gets letters to practice, joined up letters, and either numeracy questions or sentence questions. example this week she has to count out how many tens and how many units are in each box, and write down the answers and then fill boxes in with the dots to make up tens and units. When it's half term they usually have a project to do. The christmas holiday project was about different types of building materials, we had to look at house, take pics, and label differnt materials.

Thanks to Julia (Julka) for my beautiful siggy!
Come and see how Alyssa's grown!!

I think it's ridiculous how much they get at such an early age. I'm still mad about it. I wouldn't mind if Daniel was at where the other kids are at but he just isn't, he's got lots to learn that a 3-y-o would be able to do and we're still struggling to help him learn those things fgs. Argh!
