Your experience is what I am hoping for. Is this other people's experience?
Ooh - this thread is my fault - sorry! Yes - DD's school (Comp.) have said school exercise books shouldn't be brought home - most homework is set in the form of 2 week mini projects which are independently researched and then handed in online or on A4 paper in a document wallet - therefore no need to bring exercise books home.
Apparently when they are brought home they are seldom seen again.
Please do not read any of my posts if you are currently stressing about 11+ 2011. It's a different world in the Comp.
DD assures me it will get better when they set/stream them next month.
It would need to - there was a note on her homework task reminding her of the importance of putting a full stop at the end of every sentence!! [insert heart broken mother sobbing emoticon here]
