    Oxford dictionary and Thesaurus
    opposite of sudden is predictable thus
    opposite of suddenly is predictably

    Accoring to microsoft word.... the antonym of suddenly is gradually

    According to UK English it is predicatable, unless of course the seven year old is from the US, where they have variations on the English language and use American English [​IMG]

    I didn't get any homework until I started secondary school, and even then it was much easier than that! :shock: :D

    just give him a note saying he needs to be excused from doing homework owing to him being 7, and therefore much too busy having fun...

    My money's on your guess with "gradually"

    im going with gradually....only because i've been using it in law today "a sudden and tempory loss of control" V's a gradual "slow burn" process in which the defendant losses control.

    as for having homework at the age of 7- i didnt!! but think it is extremely important to encourage as much "learning" as possible and if children as young as 7 are able to do things like this then good on them! :)

    ps-no i am not a mother myself!

    The government sets homework guidelines....I know for year 6's it's something like 30 mins reading and 10 minutes spelling practise each night...much more than when I was a little nipper!
