I feel fired down same for ds, probably started prep too early. We are going on holiday for 6 weeks Saturday, and I plan to let ds rest for couple of days, then back to tests every other day and other stuff alternatively. Once his work is finished, no more than say 60 mins or so, the day is his to do as he pleases. I can not believe these exams have come round so quickly, and cant wait for it all to be over. Like my name says neveragainmum. ohh bringing his books and tests in hand luggage in case suitcases go missing!
Good luck neveragainmum. It does sound like a good idea to go away on a holiday. Maybe we too will book someplace not too far away for a week or so. It is so easy for us to pile the work (plus the expectation of a good score each time) on the children but they are only 10 and I sometimes feel sorry for the kids. Keep telling myself that there is life after 11+ and I'll make it up to DC after the exams.
