Actually she's done this quite a few times - "can't see him next week, going to the dentist" - that kind of thing. She's visiting family up North apparently.
I don't think she really 'teaching' him anything now, just timing papers - nothing I can't do at home - if I can get the toddlers out of the way
Like you say no_ball, if the ground work has been done he should be okay - if he doesn't know it by now, then its a bit too late.
We are going to spend half-term week doing papers, but not going over-the-top, just to get him used to the timing factor.
Be glad when it over to be honest.
Can you find out it your child has passed or failed before they allocate the schools, or do you have to wait till you get the email/letter next year?
