What year of Primary school did your child have actual text books at school? I've just got DS's stationery/book list for next year (year 2) and there is only 1 text book. I just assumed they would have more but I am basing that on what I remember at Primary school which was back in the *ahem* 1970s.

Primary School - what year for text books?

Current teaching methodology (at least how I was trained) is moving away from worksheet/textbook style teaching. We don't use student textbooks at all apart from Jolly Phonics in junior primary.

DD2 had soundwaves (for English) and a maths book (signpost) in year 2. they just worked through it at their own pace. It came in handy if she ever missed school for whatever reason for more than a few days.

I haven't come across text books in primary school at all - neither when I was at school (during the 90s), nor teaching...although I haven't done a LOT of primary teaching.
The only occasions I've come across text books were where a teacher used a book as resource, or they borrowed a class set from the library for a specific unit of work.

I'd be happy with that! ! The current move as @harvs said is to forget text books and actually teach kids! !! Textbooks do have their uses but in the last few years most schools are doing away with them. I'm one of those teachers who have often complained to my principal to get rid of them! !

I hope that your DD received some of this stuff too.

They do heaps of play based learning even now in year 3 (she has the same teacher).
I guess because she's thrived with this teacher it works for me.
In the same school environment DD2 (who is profoundly gifted) did dreadfully. She's at a private school now and has lessons in a group of 5 other girls and is excelling.
