It's mighty quiet here on the Birmingham forum, Kent is heaving with the confessions of parents last minute cramming (or not) over the summer holidays.
Shall we all confess to our sins, worries, prayers, amusement?
My DS is a late starter, total 8 weeks, we're doing around 8 papers a week at the moment along with a couple of tutor sessions to cover areas of the curriculum that he has not yet learn't. We seem to be bumbling along and actually, the closer it gets, the more relaxed I get, not because he is giving outstanding results (did have a mental dance on the 86% English paper as he was 55% three weeks ago!), but because he has worked so hard with very little complaint. He is a superstar regardless of the results, but aren't they all?
Off on our hols at the weekend so the pace will drop somewhat but at least there will be extra hands to help out.
Happy holidays everyone and may your superstars be as chilled as mine. Must say this journey has really not helped my Pinot consumption, taken to buying boxes now!
Eeek-8 paper a week plus tutoring! When are you squeezing those in?
We're doing two papers a week, plus some 'bits and pieces'! I'm trying to focus on spelling and vocab at the moment really. I think DS would break down if I tried 8 papers a week though.
