Our expert says:
Purple's response is sensible and useful. Yes, both that serious and calm discussion with the child is needed, and for you to try to meet with his teacher, and maybe the principal, for more informaion and advice.
Does he find it hard to see the blackboard ? ( this was a problem for me when I was in primary school, but a good teacher spoted it, I had my eyes tested, go glasses, and the problm evaporated).
An educational or child psychologist shuld be able to assess him and se if there are any particular problems making it harder for him to study and learn, and if none is found, can advise on the lines of Puple's opening suggestions, on how to set up a plan to encourage him to do his work. He cant be left unsupervised with nobody chcking his work unil the end of term or school year
