Anyone else now have their kids at home. We've broken up today for six weeks. They finished at 12 and the rain started pouring at about 3pm!!

They break up tomorrow for 9 weeks.

Not yet.

DD finishes at noon next week and has 8 weeks off. I finish the week after and have 7 weeks off.

Wow 9 and 8 weeks, that's a long time. Where do you live?

DD is home as she has finished school for good (she is 15, 16 in august). She is at her prom tonight.
Dh has just phoned to say he can't pick her up now, and I am ready for bed. Tempted to go and collect her in my nightie but It would be sod's law that I'd have to get out the car. grin

I'm sure she'd be delighted to see you standing there in your nightie wink

Mistymoo - DD is at independent school and they always get a week longer in the summer, at Christmas and at Easter.

Do private schools effectively stop teaching 2 or 3 weeks before the end of their (shorter) term or is that just state schools.

Dd's school definately does not stop teaching the last few weeks. They do have sports day and speech day etc but ds for example in reception class started a new mini topic on dinosaurs 2 weeks ago and they broke up todday.

sometimes I wonder if our (independent) school does any real teaching in the second half of the summer term, let alone the last couple of weeks. They do say they try & keep them working to the end, but not much work really happens ime. They finished lunchtime today too.

Yes, I'm loving it so far! I can stay in bed in the morning. We need more food though, all mine do is eat and sleep in the holidays.
