    Whoops, I was skimming through at 4am when I couldn't go back to sleep.

    I think homework is important to set up habits, but I also believe homework in primary school should be able to be completed by a child without parental help. My daughter gets reading, spelling, small bit of maths, etc. Then she has to choose from 4 optional boxes and complete 2 of them. Things like reading eggs, set the table, go for a walk and look at the many old federation houses in the area as part of their history.

    But I think that her extra curricular activities are more important and if she doesn't get all homework finished, no big deal imo. I think reading the home reader is the most important and it's very rare for her to miss that.
