So Sundays should be a day of rest!!!.. Yeh right not in our house. Sundays usually mean panic like hell because its school tomorrow so need to rush to get the homework, reading books and uniforms sorted.
Today I just wondered why schools send homework home… Do they really think that 100% of it is actually done by the child?? Daulton needed to make a Tudor Home for the last part of his homework file. Basically he brings home a homework book every start of term and he must complete it by a certain date. So we usually get him to sit down every weekend to complete at least one and therefore not having to have it all to do in one go. Well I wish I could say that Daulton has completed his homework book on his own, but that would be a total lie… I could even go as far to say that 95% of it was completed by me :/ Not intentional and I haven’t just thought “oh ill do this while he plays”, No infact he’s been sat right next to me and trying to do it, but I cant just let him sit there and struggle I have to help him. Im guessing im not the only parent who has helped? So im doing nothing wrong, (I hope lol)
We used cereal boxes and stuck them together. Stuck white paper all over it and cut out strips of black card to represent the beams on a Tudor House. Daulton then coloured in the path/grass with put some roses on.
It only took a couple of hours and then it was onto Ashtons Homework! which thankfully didn’t take too long… but then it was time to Iron the Uniforms for the next week. Don’t us Parents have such wonderful jobs 😀
So what do you think of our Tudor House??? Im hoping to get Top Marks *cough* *cough* I Mean Daulton 🙂
