DS2 is also in Y6. From September they did 1 piece of Maths and 1 piece of English per week
- Maths took about 10 mins and the English a little longer. From Easter they were told to do 1 hour per night
. The work they were given took him less than 15 mins and if they weren't given work to complete he did nothing. DS1 (now Y9) went to the same school and the homework was about the same, although I don't remember him being asked to revise for SATs.
At DS1's school they call Y7 "Foundation Year" and use it to bring all the boys in line as they will all have had different primary school experiences. Your DS will not be disadvantaged by not doing homework or new school work at this stage of Y6. The only downside to no homework is it comes as a bit of a shock to the system in September!
Y6 is for learning lines for the end of year production, preparing for the residential trip, helping with the younger children, induction day etc. For now, let him play out in the sunshine
