Back to School

So it has been a week at least for most of our kids in the new school year. Have you chatted with your kid yet about what is going on in the new Academic year?


  1. How do you like school this year? Is it better than last year?
  2. Is your class teacher nice?
  3. What is your favourite part of the school day?
  4. Who sits next to you in class? Is she/he nice?
  5. What do you play during your break time?
  6. What is your favourite subject? Teacher?
  7. What are the extracurricular activities you have this year?
  8. Which is the most boring part of school?
  9. Do you like your lunch? What lunch do your friends bring?


  1. Would you like to be a teacher? Why/why not?
  2. Do you think only kids good in maths are intelligent?
  3. Is it important to score well on the report card?
  4. If you could drop one subject, what would it be? Why?
  5. Do you have any resolutions you have made for yourself for the new school year?
  6. How are you going to plan and monitor your homework? Planner? Calendar?
  7. Should we make a daily time table on how our evenings will be spent? Work time vs. play time?
  8. Which subjects come easy to you?
