My DD is in Grade 2 and her homework is one reader that they have to read somewhere over the course of the week. there is no, for want of a better word, punishment if it doesn't get done. The teachers expect that the kids will write in their diary when they have completed the reader, parents dont even have to sign it.
I must admit, I love the no homework thing. DD has speech therapy and I try and find 10 mins a night to practice her sounds and honestly, its like pulling teeth, she hates it and she is so tired. I would hate to have to add homework in.

DD2 hasn't been given any homework or readers yet. I've just been making her read what we have at home.

Kids at our school don't move on to written math until Year 3 (which he is in this year).
As I said he was behind his classmates, so it wasn't until mid-through year 2 that he started writing sentences. Paragraphs were never mentioned- and DSD didn't do them until Year 3 (she's year 5 this year).
It's a struggle to get him to write his name, let alone anything else.
