Number of homework over weekend

Postby jkids » Sun Sep 25, 2016 3:25 pm

Hi

this week, I got a shock that my ds has 7 homework to do over the weekend. I am fine with homework but isn't this abit too much?

eng 2, mother tongue 2, art 1, sci 1, math 1

roughly how many homework is your child given over the weekend?

Is this the norm for every weekend or is it becos SA2 is coming so teachers are giving more homework than usual?

How much is each item? It's not the number but the extent of each item. If it's really a lot, you can help your child work out the most efficient way to complete it and get it out of the way, or hand in 1-2 items a day or 2 later with an explanatory note to the teacher.
