We all like to unwind after a long week of hard work and school children are no exception. So, on Fridays, we will get out the Nintendo Wii and have a gaming session. There is still the option to play other games and do homework, but we know they might want to save something for the weekend. Especially as we appreciate that you might want the opportunity to spend some quality time doing homework with your own children and see how they are getting on with their schoolwork.
