DS did a hash job on his English homework, he only remembered it was due today when he consulted his planner at 8am! To his credit, he did get it finished to a reasonable standard, although he will still get in trouble as he has gone in without his planner. DD chased after him with it but he was too far ahead. Hopefully they'll cut him some slack as it's the first week.
We have a parents meeting with DS1 Form Tutor on the 9th October, we got the slip yesterday.
He still seems happy, but it is very full on academically - he has had a History assessment last week, and got it back today with a level on it, and also has a Science assessment next week based on the last few weeks work. He says Maths is more interesting now it his been set.
The only concern I have is that English has been a bit of a mish-mash teacher wise, but the school are advertising for 2 English teachers so I think they are aware of the issue and working to resolve it.
