I have read numerous useful advice on this forum and one thing that I distinctly remember is the advice to stick to routine leading up to the test date. I can totally appreciate this as my DCs thrive on routine, however, they normally have numerous activities after school during the week. In particular, my DS who will be sitting the test on Thursday has football until evening (7pm) on Wednesdays. I am inclined to let him miss it this week but was wondering if this teeny change might throw him off and make him nervous. At the moment, he appears to be taking it in stride, although Thursday morning might be different story! I was therefore wondering what others did/plan to do
All three of ours carried on with everything completely as normal - taking the 11+ was just something we had to remember to get up on time for on the Saturday morning. They certainly didn't expect it to affect their activities and nor did we.
So personally, I would just carry on regardless. You could ask him what he wants to do, although if others are relying on him being at the session, perhaps now rather than on the day, so that you can let people know if he says that he would rather give it a miss. (None of ours is keen on football, so would probably jump at the chance of missing it
, but I know that they would have been quite unhappy had I suggested that they should miss a swimming lesson the night before the 11+).
