I thought I would share my after school ‘routine’ with you and some tips I have for organising my evenings.
I get back from school at about 4:15pm, then get a drink and a snack to take upstairs with me. Then I write all the homework tasks I have to do on a piece of paper and get the books out I need to do them. After I have made sure I have everything I need to do my homework, I get changed out of my school uniform into something more comfortable.
When I do my homework, I tend to do all what I was given the night I get it, so I don’t fall behind. Also, I do the homework I least want to do first, because I am more awake at that point. Between pieces of homework, I give myself a little break (5 or 10 minutes), so that when I am doing a piece of homework my brain thinks it is like a little reward. I usually get 3 pieces of homework a day and I try and get it all done before tea, so that afterwards I can do things I enjoy.
I try and go to bed at about 10 pm, so that the next morning, I can get up on time and not be too tired.
