I know they need to learn how to read and write. How to spell, add up, multiply and divide. That's why I send them to school for teachers WHO ARE TRAINED to show them.
Why do teachers feel the need to send my children home with a slip of paper telling them they need to do a two week project and spend x amount of hours on it?
What they mean is; they want me to spend two weeks nagging the child to make a plan and get on with it. I no doubt will have to make a trip to Tesco to print some photos, nip into work early to print it off or just do the damn homework myself.
We've made a bear in the woods. (He was in grizzly bear class). A paper mache Titanic, a large canvass of the planets, posters... plus other things I feel I have blanked out.
Don't get me started on when the bloody class mascot comes home!
