He was very excited to tell us that they had been making a Fruit Salad in school, Monkey does love learning about things that he can then talk about in ‘real life’.
This photo shows his salad! The homework was to enrol the help of someone else to help you eat the salad and then answer the questions. Monkey decided that his testing partner would be Mouse.
They ate their way through the fruit and then discussed which was the best, which they liked least and what they would add to it! The carrot was on the bottom of both their lists (would be on mine too, next to sweet fruit!).
They loved it. Monkey was proud to be the one with the knowledge and enjoyed talking Mouse through the fruits, and Mouse was just happy that her big brother had wanted her to join in!
I will be honest I am not sure I agree with homework at 5 years old; Monkey still seems so little to have formalised homework. Although saying that, this was fun for him and it was something he could do with his sister, so I guess this type of homework isn’t that bad!
Do you agree with Homework?
