They're all expected to start unable to read but be reading fluently and writing identical cursive with a fountain pen by 8. Maybe not v helpful but I don’t remember having homework at primary school and now I have 2 degrees from university.
I like the suggestion by @Mother Of The Noise about doing it in the morning.
The following questions, supplied by Oxford Home Schooling, are aimed at primary school kids aged 7.
Your child will probably now be starting to read independently, but games and activities are still a fun way to help with phonic skills, word recognition and general language development.
And I can see the value in every piece of homework they give him. I have to do this once - but the school are supportive and will keep them in and work with me.
There is no screen time at all for anything Monday to Friday - they have the dogs, animals (we love on a mini farm) and books and board games.That's a lot of homework, unless it's mostly reading I would consider if this is the right amount of pressure on a 7 year old (in many countries with highly successful school systems they only start at 7).Mine had an hour a week at primary in many countries with highly successful school systems they only start at 7Why is this always spouted out?We don’t have time for TV etc they can paint, draw, play games etc after their homework.When they refuse - in the car with note as above and then straight to bed 🐕😂it works here In 2 years time the school becomes selective.The children are evaluated out of 10 at least 5/6 times a week. Is he at school in lessons for 8 hours or at school till lunch or til 3pm and then in childcare?If he doesn't learn how to conjugate his verbs, or his times table, or his spelling, then he won't follow the lessons so well. I think the answer is someone else (teenage babysitter or childcare with supervised homework session) does homework with him earlier. I have threatened to remove screentime and followed through.but often he takes up such a lot of time that he finishes the homework then goes to bed. Changing schools is not really an option, all of them have a lot of homework here (not UK). if he starts yelling that he wants to do it, say calmly 'Ok. No amount of screaming or saying they want to do I don’t back down.This isn’t how UK schools work and nor is it where OP lives so it’s irreelevant to the issue.School can be enriching and mine were more than ready at 4.
