Mine has been going on 18 since she was about 4 LOL.

marthamoo Wed 13-Sep-06 16:36:50

Awwww, thanks tamum.

nutcracker Wed 13-Sep-06 16:38:37

Mine has more homework than last year yes, but last year she never had any at all cos the teacher didn't believe in it.

You'd all have loved to see her face when she came home the other day with Maths homewrok, spellings and her reading book

I don't mind them having it if it's something I don't have to help with

I've got an 8 year old DS, but he was born in '97 too.

can we have the one were girls start noticing them ( and then can I shove it in a corner of my mind where I don't actually have to think about it?)

marthamoo Wed 13-Sep-06 16:40:41

Wait til they're 9 <<<she says, rubbing in her aeons more experience>>> Ds1 now has maths every night, a long comprehension once a week, spellings (40!) to practise every night, a reading book every night and a writing exercise and more worksheets at the weekend.

Last night he had just started his maths when "My Parents Are Aliens" came on - he sighed deeply and switched it off. It took 40 minutes and then another 20 for spellings and reading - an hour a night seems excessive to me.
