MUM was horrified to learn that her seven-year-old girl’s homework was to write a sexy dating ad.
Sharon Underwood, 33, was alerted only when daughter Chloe asked what “passionate” meant.
The schoolgirl had even been asked to include racy words including “cheap, dangerous, fit, wild and gorgeous”.
Sharon said: “I was just so shocked. It’s appalling, disgusting.”
But when she complained to her local Catholic school in Gillingham, Kent, the teacher replied: “It’s not like I’m giving the homework to a dating agency.”
Sharon added: “Chloe did not know what a dating agency was and there is no reason why, at seven, she should.”
The teacher at St Mary’s primary had taken the worksheet from the BBC Skillswise website for ADULTS to improve reading, writing and maths ability. The sheet even suggested including a photo.
St Mary’s, which says it uses “true Christian values”, has apologised.
A spokesman admitted the work was “clearly inappropriate for children of that age”.
The school added: “It was a mistake. It will not happen again.” [Source]
