You may already have your new school timetable. It is very important that you check your timetable as it will tell you things such as:
You will need to change classrooms throughout the day and you need to get to each lesson on time. If you don’t have a watch, it would be a good idea to buy one. If you buy one with an alarm it can remind you of any important times throughout the day. It can also wake you up in the morning!!!
You can work with a friend or family member. Complete this activity using a copy of the black/white timetable - find all the English lessons. How many are there? Now try same with a copy of the coloured timetable. Which timetable was easier? Could this help you with organisation?
Why not try colour coding your own timetable. You could colour code your books, jotters and equipment too to make packing your bag easier. You could also colour code your homework in your planner.
Homework is part of daily life. After the school day having to sit down and do homework can cause stress for all the family. Some people enjoy homework but others can find it frustrating. You will have homework for different subjects, due at different times. It can be hard to keep track and get everything done on time. Having a plan for homework can help. Setting yourself tasks to complete everyday will help make sure you meet deadlines without the need to stay up late to get things finished.
