No la. I recall P4 seemed more hectic but P5 quite relaxed. There are projects that need be done and homework from time to time. But during hols, DS1 can watch tv, play games, etc...I don't see him having much homework. Teachers ain't complaining so I guess all is good?

No leh. It depends on the school.
2 years back during DD's time, P5 workload was much heavier as compared to P4.
P6 was busy for 1st half only.

If compare P4 and P5 workload, P5 is way more hectic
