    Default Children being kept in at lunch to complete work - WDYT?

    What is your opinion in regards to children having to stay in until they finsh their work - eg: copying down spelling words etc... at lunch time? Therefore missing out on actually eating.

    I dont agree with missing the eating part of lunch, but the actual play part, yes. As a mother of a child that gets distracted easy and just mucks around yes I think he should miss the play part of lunch.

    I find it hard to believe the child wouldn't be allowed to eat lunch while catching up.

    And if the child is being disruptive during class then i dont have a problem with it. No different to lunchtime detention.

    Provided they're allowed some amount of time to eat then it can be a good way to teach them to get the work done during class.

    But if the not eating thing is on the level and not an exaggeration then uts a bit wrong.

    Depends on why they didn't finish the set work. My DS struggles with writing, so I would be annoyed if he missed lunch time to complete the work. I think that would just shatter his confidence completely. But if it were due to mucking around and being silly, sure miss out on play time, but still should be allowed time to eat.

    How old is the child?

    I agree with keeping kids in who have been disruptive/unproductive, but I've never heard of and don't agree with not giving them time to eat.

    Wouldn't work with mine. I can't imagine how he'd concentrate without 1. eating and 2. having a break. Who works or studies all day without breaks and is actually productive?

    If they were productive when they should've been, there'd be no need to be kept in.

    Whilst I don't agree with not being allowed to eat, I think a teacher is well within their rights to keep a child in for not completing work if they made no real effort to finish it when required.

    I know this, I think there are better ways to get children to engage than to keep them from their active/eating time.

    I don't agree with it at all. Nobody likes to stay hungry. It's hard to concentrate on an empty stomach and just leaves is grumpy.
