Why do teachers set work that cannot possibly be done by the children and has to be done by the parents? I've been to primary school and have no desire to do primary school work again!!

Why teachers, why?

I reckon it to see which kids are doing there homework and which kids have their parents doing it.
I write on the homework that my child didn't understand/could not do the the task can they explain it again.

maybe because there are lots of kids of different levels in the class? Some can do it and some can't...but then the teacher should be giving them differing levels that suit their abilities.
If DS came home with stuff that he could not do...i would go speak to the teacher and see if he was falling behind.

Weird. I'm a teacher and only send home work that's revision type stuff. Things we've done in class. I would love to never set homework actually!!! Except to read. It's a waste of time if the kids can't do it!

I always thought homework was revision?

DD1 goes to a public school and is in year 1, her homework is basic and she flies through it (well not her home readers though but if she isn't reading them freely after 2 or 3 nights I send them back with a 'this one was too hard' note attached).

Well I have to say that's a bit steep of your school. My school stopped doing home projects because of this reason... Too much pressure on parents to do it for the kids and the comparisons between the kids who do it themselves and those who don't. Not fair. Same for costs. If we're doing projects we provide materials and construct at school.
Perhaps a letter to the school expressing your concerns would help make changes???
But I would still encourage your child to build/make on their own for their own sense of achievement. Forget about what others do.
