I don't want my Secondary colleagues to think I am encroaching on their territory but a parent has asked me to find out the answer this this question. As a primary teacher I am tutoring a Y6 and Yr3 pupil from the same family. Last year I tutored their sister who is now in Yr7. I am obviously still interested in her progress and was chatting to her last week. She told me she has only had 4 pieces of English work to complete since September. Now I know this could be a bit of an exaggeration but her mum is a bit concerned, as I am because it is by far her weakest subject. Your thoughts - is this usual?
