England’s famedÂ football (soccer)Â captain ofÂ Real Madrid expresses bewilderment regarding his 6-year-old son Brooklyn’s math homework.Â The husband of Spice Girl Victoria Adams, or Posh Spice, admitted to being utterly dumbfounded when his little boy asked for a bit of help with his homework and had to turn to his wife for help.
“Their homework is so hard these days.Â I sat down with Brooklyn the other day and I was like, ‘Victoria, maybe you should do the homework tonight.Â I think it was math, actually.Â It’s done totally different to what I was teached (who said Brits had good grammar?) when I was at school (yeah, math just keeps on changing) and you know, I was like ‘Oh my god, I can’t do this’.Â And Brooklyn was like ‘Please do it with me’ and I’m like, ‘I’ll read your book with you.”Â
And I’m like, ‘I’m going to vomit’.
The midfielder’s son attends an exclusive school which adheres to the British national curriculum.Â Here are a couple of examples of what some British national curriculum math questions for 7-year-oldsÂ are:Â “Bet went to the shop at 11:45am.Â She came back half an hour late.Â What time did she come back?” and “What is 12 divided by three?”
David Beckham needs to thank his lucky stars he can play ball, because I don’tÂ think there’s much hope for an intellectual career.Â
