Tuesday evening is parents evening for the boys and I am going to have to have THAT conversation about homework again. What conversation are you thinking…. Well at five and six, I just do not see the need for my boys to do homework.
I want my children to learn by play, not to be forced to do homework unwilling. When you look back to your childhood, can you remember doing homework at Primary school? I cannot. Homework was something that happened to me in Senior school and I am keen to keep my boys childhoods just that, childhoods. I do not feel the need to hot house them, or to force them to learn unless they are falling behind their peers.
