That is a long day. A is 9-3.30 (8.20-3.55 if you include the bus journey) and he is shattered this evening.

An hour a day is a lot to fit in.

F probably has about an hour or two in total for the whole week!

It doesn’t always take the hour but we’ve always been told to not let them spend more than 30 minutes per subject if they’re struggling.

That seems like an awful lot of homework for that age.

Cube is Y8 now but last year he got maths via Hegarty once a week and then the odd bit of homework from other subjects. Maybe about 90 minutes to 2 hours weekly. They've changed to a new academy this year so I don't know if he'll end up with more. His day is 8:30-3:15.

H had a bug cry after her first few days in year 7 about missing primary school friends, she went alone too.

She is in year 9 now and still has the odd wobble about friendships etc. Her day is 8.40 - 3.05pm.

I hope they all settle in well, it's a hard time. I found the first few weeks of H in year 7 quite difficult because I worried about her a lot.

We had our first tears last night! Something to do with netball and being put in the wrong section during PE so she thinks she'll not have a chance at being in one of the netball teams. What is baffling is that A has never show any desire to do any form of extra-curricular team sport before now and wasn't on a single team at primary or in any of the sports clubs, so I'm not sure why she's getting herself quite so worked up now!

It’s all so fraught, isn’t it -I hope she’s ok. J seems to be ok so far, but he’s absolutely knackered.
