This week’s Project 52 is a short one. Week 37 was a wipe out one, with work and school.
Sunday saw N go out brambling, so we’ve been having a lot of crumble, and then remaining blackberries on cereal. Autumn is definitely here – I’ve ordered a new pair of sliippers.
N really struggled this week, the first full one back at school. Going into key stage 2, they launched straight into a lot of homework. 20 minutes a day, plus 15 minutes reading. But the work is taking longer than that for the non-reading, so we’re struggling to get reading in. Plus he’s had weekend homework, which I don’t agree with.
He also got a bit upset in class one day because he misheard a number and then said he was confused about what they were doing. I think the jump from year 2 to 3 has been a massive one, and they’re certainly not easing the kids in gently. I did remind him that they’ve only just gone back after a summer off, and it will take a while to get the hang of things again. Hopefully in a few weeks, he’ll feel a bit calmer about it and be finding things a bit easier again.
He’s been enjoying his tennis again though, with his first private lesson one school lunchtime, and back after school again. It’s now noticeable how much he’s improved which is reassuring given the money it costs. I’m glad he’s enjoying it, and he’s got a few of his friends from school in his class again, so they’re all in it together.
My week’s ending with Blog On Toys conference up in Manchester. So N and his dad will be sorting themselves out while I get to socialise and talk blogging and social media with other bloggers.
