It really depends on the school. Different schools have different practices for vacation homework. But I have yet to come across any school that gives homework for Nov-Dec. Does not make much sense.

End of p4, my dd given a p4 Maths assessment book.
She didn't do, thought it's optional. When school reopened, teacher asked for it :yikes: Had to rush to complete the entire book during first week of term

Then end of p5, given two p5 Maths workbook.
Decided not to do again (didn't learn her lesson :sweat: )
Luckily different Maths teacher in p6 so new teacher didn't ask for holiday homework :lol:

I agree with you. I believe that students are to have fun during the year end holiday, after almost a year of hard work. And maybe self revise for the upcoming year. :goodpost:

I usually use the long vacations for encouraging other stuff. For academic work, I mainly require reading. I will recommend things for my kids to read, and set a (low-ish) target, but they usually exceed the target for English reading. Reading MT is not as successful, but I still try! For one kid, as she is weak in Maths, we often use the first few weeks to revise her weak areas.

after sa2, I give kids 2 weeks break before revising (and finishing up) present assessment...but reading still goes on during those 2 weeks because it is fun. I love year end break because the entire academic year is OVER :rahrah:
