'I can't see my friends any more'

Isaac Scholes

Will the second week of home-schooling go as smoothly as the first?

NOT being at school has been pretty good so far because the second you finish your work you can do whatever you want (within reason).

For example, I like being able to play my guitar and do exercise or a work-out.

In school, however, when your work is completed you are usually given an extension activity.

There are two other good things about being at home. Dad sometimes lets me have my phone at break time - and that would never happen in school.

The other good thing is that when I am reading I can pretty much do it anywhere - on my bed, on the sofa, in my den and even outside. This is much better than sitting at a desk.

However, there are a few negatives with being off. There are obviously no more after-school clubs - I really enjoyed these - and because I am in P7 I am sad that if we don't come back to school we won't go on our big trip to Northumbria.

The worst thing is that I can't see my friends any more, though the teachers have said that we will probably have a get-together at some point.
