Yes, we're in Yr7 Judd now & although some nights there has been no homework, most nights there is at least 1.1/2 hours & on average 2 - 3 hours.
We were meant to go away this weekend, but due to the amount of homework we just went away for the day on Sunday & all day Saturday was spent working
(that's for me btw - DS has not complained at all amazingly) Each subject is not too much - ie revise for a test, plan an essay or poem, make a poster etc but when you add in the work needed for some longer term projects plus the copying out neatly of notes taken in class, it all adds up. I think it is all just a way for them to revise what was done that day & as there are now 13 subjects, it's quite a bit - more a culture shock as previously he has never had homework.
His primary school thought they were being nice not setting any, saying they would get enough in the future, but I think it does the children a disservice when they get to secondary if only for the planning aspect of it.
