I know some are already on their half term

Our schools break up Thursday and Friday and we have a week off

When do your children break up ?

A busy week for me with 5 little ones, but all good children so I do not mind

What about you - is it going to be a busy week for you all ?

Or a nice easy one ?

Our schools break up on Friday for a week.

I'll be working Monday to Wednesday withe 5 little ones on Monday, just the baby on Tuesday and then 4 on Wednesday so a bit mixed really. Going to a Halloween party on Wednesday but no plans yet for the other days.

Our schools break up on Friday. As I only have teachers children at the mo I have the week off so am off to Amsterdam. 2 months ago my daughter had a test drive for a polo car then later got an offer of a free trip for 4 if she bought one. We were looking for a shared family car so this offer came at the right time!!

Our primary breaks up on Friday, and I shall only have to work tues, wed, thu next week :clapping:

Our secondary has broken up this week, they have decided to lump all their inset days together and have two weeks off, which means my eldest is moping around moaning cos he can't play the x box :rolleyes:

18-10-2011, 12:07 PM
i have a right old mix. 2 schoolies are off this week for 1 week, preschool off next week and my son thinks its great because his school is off for both weeks. This comes from living on the boarder of lincs and leics. Having lots of fun with arts and crafts and im getting lots of evidence to write up in LJ's.

So far all 6 children have been great and all is going well.

The high school finish thursday and the primary school finish friday.

I mostly look after teachers children so i have quiet holidays. So only two siblings next week monday to thursday and we have loads of things planned for halloween.

18-10-2011, 07:27 PM
My local primary finishes on Friday, so it will be quiet next week, with only 1 mindee everyday, which means early starts and earlier than normal finishes. My 2 lo are primary age, so they will be with me as well.
I am hoping to catch up on my learning journals while they play, instead of rushing out and about all week spending money and getting more behind with my paperwork - not sure that will happen though, sounds too boring doesn't it?

18-10-2011, 08:03 PM
I can't wait for half term!

Ours all break up tomorrow and we have planned THE best day for Thursday - all children have been asked to arrive in their pj's and none of us will be getting dressed. We are planning on spending the entire day under our duvets, eating bowls of popcorn and watching films.

Hopfully this will have us nice and rested for the week ahead!!!!
