As OH was home early tonight, I got him to check DS's homework. The work had been done correctly but was rather sloppy and messy, OH had a go at DS and made him do it again. DS was already very tired and got all upset and tearful - you know how it goes! Anyway, silly question but does it matter that it's not all neat as long as it can be read and understood?
At a PTA meeting last week, the head was saying how much she disagreed with homework and that the main reason it's given is because parents ask for it. Along with another parent/teacher there, they agreed that it was a waste even at high school.
Having got DS through the 11+ we are now trying to get him to read more (he would rather be drawing - he is getting rather good though!
) - isn't this enough????
