    Our cheeky boy read the last chapter of the book we are reading to the kids at the moment...he couldn't wait! This morning we caught him reading one of his library books whilst also lego-ing with the other hand.

    I agree about the readers - most of the ones he's had this year have been horrible - but he loves reading other things so we don't make him read the home readers everyday.

    I hate it. I have a child in Year 9 and have just been to talk to the teachers after weeks of 6 hours a night - plus sport which I see as more important because it's health related. I was going to bed before my 14yo who would regularly stay up till midnight doing homework. Extensions pretty well needed a doctors certificate. I almost had a breakdown along with my daughter. We have a sort of a plan but it's still very intense. Funny thing is that the teachers said they don't like giving homework because they get "parent work" back, but they still seem to set heaps. I regularly do assignments for my daughter because I don't want her up till 2am!

    As a parent and a teacher I don't believe in homework.
    However, DD practices her spelling words every night and we go through times tables as she struggles with them. Oh and we do the home readers if we have time between after school activities, cooking dinner and bed time.
    A lot of the time I find homework given out is useless and completely unrelated to the current learning.
