can anyone comment on the amount of homework their child is getting in their prospective G.S?
My child goes to a very popular bucks G.S, THEIR GCSE results was excellent,but so far, they have hardly had any really challenging homework.According to their timetable, they should have 2 pieces of homework set a night ,x 20mins each,but in reality, it would appear they are not really following the timetable,as homework set as been 'adhoc'.
Iam concerned as he came from an independent school and allways had 'challenging' homework. He informed me today that his english teacher said "i don't believe in homework, i feel children shoiuld play when they get home,and homework should only be set during the holidays".
This really worried me.I feel like contacting his class tutor, but my son is reluctant and doesn't want me to make a 'fuss'.Has anyone had similar experience?
I wonder IF it's because they are 'new', they have had alot of assessments, but this is really worrying me.Any comments any advice?
