DD has been off all day after vomiting & not sleeping last night; she will have up to 3.5 hours of exams tomorrow, as a result, gulp. They applied for & received an alternative schedule. Thankfully she seems to finally be recovering.
Well, it's been rather exciting. Not least because she is so extremely keen to take these tests (likes a challenge). We all half-hoped she'd come in for the afternoon, but realised by noon that not a chance of that. She didn't really perk up until 2pm+. She is under orders to have no contact with other yr6s, no Internet, no texting. Now eating cereal & seeming pretty much herself. I am avoiding the other SATs threads so can avoid being accused of trying to get question info (hopefully).
DD's teacher said this is the first time (in 4 yrs?) that he's had any child off ill during SATs week. He was concerned but not worried when I told him; whereas the HT looked outright panicked when she heard the news. Later happy enough once the alternative schedule approved. Apparently they have to ring up on some over-congested phone line to beg ask for a timetable variation.
Don't worry, I'm not reading closely anyway. It's really just DD that isn't supposed to learn any new info. She'd be horrified to get her marks from anything but her own efforts.
She was throwing up last night at 9pm, but has slept well all night, at least. I imagine she'll stagger in for the first test today & go from there whether she completes any others. She says today's exam (G&S) is the easiest by far (for her).
School will move heaven & earth to get her to complete L3-5 test, My real problem is if she can't complete L6. She could get hysterical about it (arghh....)
They can apply for a timetable variation if he really doesn't feel up to it. Bit of a faff, because they won't be sure of the procedure themselves, but possible. I think today's morning test is "only" 45 minutes.
DS was wiped out with tonsilitus back when he was 7. Hope yours is better soon.
Aw poor DS Ruprekt . Mine has a similar bug (I've had it since last week) and was sent home yesterday afternoon. He has just come home again as the teachers sent him home after the spelling test this morning and has gone straight to bed.
Poor lamb. I was miserable with this over the weekend and am still feeling wiped out now. To have to do something that involves thinking as well would have finished me off!
