DS didnt have any in year 1. He had a reading book but that was it. When he had read the book, he would take it back to school and swap it for another.
In year 2 he had a weekly homework sheet.
So far no homework yet this year for year 3.

Nothing so far. We were told last week they will soon start bringing home a reading book and a home reading diary to complete each day. That's it.

We have had homework since the first day of school for my DD in year 1.
They have a reader, sight words (5 or 6) and to review a sheet on a letter that they had completed in school.
At the parent information evening they said no more than 10 mins each night from Monday -Thursday. If it is taking longer than that, or the child is getting frustrated consistently to talk to their teacher about it.
My DD is usually fine with it, although Thursday nights can be a little tense as she is tired.
Oh we have a one show and tell each week which is themed eg this week it is pick a number between 1-10 and tell the class five facts about that number. We usually do this on a Tuesday night so she can practise for her talk day. If the weekend before she is with me then we complete the talk on that weekend, but her Dad doesn't seem interested in helping them with their homework.
They sometimes have extra things to do, like last week to decorate a shoe box and bring in 3 photos inside the box as it will be a memory box. Later in the term they have to do a talk about one of the photos.

DS1 has a reader given out each Monday and it is returned Friday of that week.
He also has a homework sheet which has about 10-12 sight words and two or three other activites, one of these activites involves numeracy. He also has a set of 12 other words (based on the sound they are learning that week) which have to be written out 4 times. Not including the reader it is about 10 minutes or less of work from Monday night through Thursday night.

Sorry to hijack.
DD1 was similar to Cheerilee - readers initially (one per night) then sight words from term 3.

We were informed this morning a home reader will come home every night of the week, a weekly homework sheet plus sight words ... starting this week.
