Picked son up after Fun Choir. Nothing said about whether it was fun or not. I managed to be late enough for him to have gone on to Late Class. (I think they were released unusually early today.)
Science paper was OK. But he could not remember the important dates for his History paper. Then there were those Anglo-Saxon place names that he hadn't learned.
I had kept asking him to learn that list but he insisted he did not need to know that.
No, no, no, the point of revision is that you learn everything that you have learned in class.
"But it was not on the green sheet!" he insisted.
Of course it was. He just decided to ignore it.
Having learned today that there were facts that he could not recall, we then went over the Geography section of his green sheet. He did not have his book despite my instructions for him to retrieve his Geography book from his classroom.
So we had to rely on his atlas and hope that we have covered enough ground.
As for birthdays, his Chinese side showed when he asked me why people made such a fuss about birthdays.
We ordered in pizza because he loves pizza and I don't remember the last time we had pizza at home. His presents had not arrived because he told us rather late in the day what he really wanted for his birthday.
In any case he would not be able to start playing with those so it's just as well that it's not likely to arrive till tomorrow at least.
His best friend remembered and he came home with a model airplane to build and paint.
