P1 workload

Postby winth » Wed Jan 14, 2009 10:35 am

Hi parents,

What is the normal level of homework that P1 children take back in a week? Can anyone advise?

My DD so far only brought back one colouring exercise with simple writing on lines and a simple Maths exercise. Simple since these are concepts already grasped in K1 and K2. Other than that, just assessments that she has completed at After School Care. Still waiting for spelling and tingxie lists to appear.
Maybe this is because she is at a neighbourhood school?

ADD: Forgot to mention a Chinese colouring exercise.

Hi,

Is there any CA in your children's schools?

So now, still honeymoon period for children... I wonder when the real work begins.

My dd so far has only english writing and colouring HW.
She said she did maths HW in school.

Her school has only SAs no CAs, don't know whether is it a bad thing? :?
