We are having the same problems, but we didn't even do Walsall. I think after a nice relaxing summer term at school it is now impossible to get going again and what she has done has been terrible as her attitude is just get it done as quickly as possible and get outside!! I'm now having a panic!!!

We are rather inconsistent. One good day and a couple of not so good days.,
Playing in the sun isn't really helping, unlike what I had hoped! Dd gets too hot and exhausted and so do I. On top of that, sleep overs and days out here and there.

But I suppose they need all these to reenergise and refocus. So, am trying my best to go with the flow.

Every time I log in to the forum, I keep hoping that someone will come along and reassure me and say that there is still plenty of time ( 5weeks) and one can make plenty of progress in 39 days left..... For various reasons, I have been unable to sit with dd and check progress, fill gaps etc until 10 days ago. Now that I am doing it, I get taken over by guilt that I haven't done my bit.....

Bliney, when do warwks schools break up? Mine only finished yesterday!

Btw, You will be fine, 5 weeks is ages, playing in the sun is doing her the world of good, far better than staring at books. Try to just do 20 mins with her straight after brekkie, while it is still cool, before she has escaped into the garden.

Some kids have already been off for two weeks, others broke up last Friday I.e just under a week ago. Didn't realise there was such a difference!

I wonder if it is a way of spreading out holiday traffic, or even extending the holiday season with a view to lower prices start and finish of break?

Thinking about it the Warwickshire test is 6th Sept?...ours would not have returned by then, their test is 13th, so they will have been back a few days.

Ds1 returns to KEFW on Thursday 28 August but ds2 doesn't start at Adams until Wednesday 3 September. However ds1 does have a two week half term holiday to look forward to in October.
