Homework doing your head in? Read wish-I'd-known tips from other parents on Mumsnet's Education pages.
Ds has the opportunity of doing this in yr 3 at £80 a term. Is it worth it? Seems like expensive board games to me or am I missing something?
Do you have a web link to tell us what it is?
Here it is. Not sure it makes understanding it any clearer. I'm interested to hear from anyone whose dcs do it and what they think of it as an at school, but after school, activity.
My child did something similar to it (but it was free) ( ie an afterschool G&T program that involved playing games) - and apparently (according to the teacher) it improved his social skills i.e. she thinks he made friends in the group which he hadn't made in class.I think £80 sounds an awful lot for you to have to pay.
Doesn't look useful to me. Website claims it was tested by a Yale professor but if you look on his website, he is a politics prof (not education or psychology) who invented some of the games and presumably makes money from them. I wouldn't pay.
I hadn't thought about it being expensive. £8 per hour for an activity is cheap compared to some of the other things he does. I'm going to let him have a go for a term.
