Thanks for starting this thread Worried Ruby. I'd love to, like Milla, know some of the other mums to get a handle on how much he should actually be doing. (I once asked DS if he had anyone of his friends' phone numbers as we live miles away from everyone else and he said no, but he had their pics on his mobilie phone
DS's homework has slackened considerably since the first week or two and is maybe one short piece a night (10-15 mins) with the occasional lengthier piece eg planning a test essay outline for History. However, I find it quite hard to know with the more open ended tasks how much he should actually be doing so we may be in for a shock when his marks come through?!
I think some of the girls probably spend hours producing a beatifully neat, coloured in piece while he just answers the questions.
(Sorry, this sounds very sexist, but when I was teaching I found this to be true).
Yes, it does seem pretty rough Rosered. Do you mind me asking which school it is?
