First Post , and hello to all
Thank you to all that have been posting on this forum I have recently found ( been lurking for a couple of weeks, but hey)and it is a wealth of information some of which I wish I had known earlier
We diy-ed for DS and are hoping for AGS but regardless of the outcome the most pleasing knock on effect from the whole process has been both ds1 and in turn ds2's(a few years younger) attitudes to their homework/homelearning.
Since returning to school in September both are eager to complete schoolwork without so much as a moan...long may this continue!!
Have others on here found that to be the case?
Given that someone once posted that they would not be allowing their DC to do any homework set by the school until they had completed all the selection tests the parent had put them in for (one step down, I suppose, from those who wouldn't even send their DC in to school at all until all their selection tests were over), I'm tempted to comment, golly, you really haven't got the hang of this game yet, have you?
Actually, it's really nice to hear someone report that their DC are actually linking 'the 11+ syllabus' (no such thing, really, if you think about it), or at least their 'home-work' - as opposed to homework, with their general learning
