These are the waning hours of the long weekend. Most of the Year 9 reports due this week will have been written by the end of the evening. It’s now just 14 teaching days until half-term.
The Year 11s leave in six teaching days. I’ve offered them as much revision time as I could. Most of them didn’t take it up. The exam is the day after leaving day and it’s all up to them now.
The non-resident grandparents will be here for most of the half-term week. Because they will have been away from home since today, involved in various ministry projects, they will only have five days with us. We want to go away on holiday, but holiday lets are invariably Saturday to Saturday. I have a few days to try to work out what we are going to do.
