DS1 just joined a new school for Y2 and I really want to try to "start as you mean to go on" with homework. Now, he doesn't have too much homework, but our experience with Y1 homework was that I had to do a lot of nagging and shouting to get him to do it at all, which was no fun for anyone. I used to let Ds come home, have a snack and then a play, and then sat him down for homework if he wanted a bit of tv afterward while I made tea. We are trying to watch less tv and frankly we just don't have the time for all that this year. I would be very grateful for anyone's tips for successful homework planning. It's very little but I have to admit I can't face another year of sitting on him to do it. My reaps rents certainly never managed my homework... I just got on with it myself.
