As the title is really ... has anyone done any extended (i.e. 6 months/1 year) travelling with a primary school aged child? Where did you go and at what age was your child? How easy was it to get them out of school and how easy was it for them to get back into the swing of things at school again once back?
My concern would be that you wouldn't get them back into school if you are in a fully subscribed school. Otherwise think it would be fine - chidlren are very adaptable.
We are moving to Australia soon and my DD (age 8) will have 2-3 months out of school before starting somewhere totally new. I have very few concerns as she is adaptable and fairly confident so don't anticipate that she will struggle too much.
