Homework

D: We’ve got some homework to do – there’s a letter in my book bag.

Me: What’s the homework?

D: It’s literacy and maths. I don’t know what we have to do. Can you read the letter to me?

Me: You’re right – for literacy you’ve got to try and “write a simple sentence and join with ‘and’ or ‘but'” and for maths you’ve got to try and “know all the pairs of numbers that make 20 and the matching subtractions.”

D: Yes, like 5 and 5 and 5 and 5.

Me: That’s right – or 10 and…?

D: 10. Yeah – it’s homework. Does that mean I get the day off school?
