This week has involved almost as much work for me as for Sx as I try to support him through the first tricky weeks at secondary school. I am discovering that unfortunately I have NO hidden talents in the “covering a book in sticky backed plastic” department. I am quite proud of the idea of doing word art to cover them (not least as I can hopefully recycle the designs for subsequent years of secondary school and for all 4 children – until the teachers are able to spot one of our family’s books at 20 paces!
Sx is stressed about the amount of homework (as am I – I still have 5 more books to cover!) so we have drawn up a white board so he can see at a glance what homework is still to be completed and by when.
