If Jack and Jill are in P1 and P5 respectively, their sibling Tom in year nine and the 9th being a Tuesday, on what day should their parents have the heating on based on the latest phased return of schools?

Memories of those dreaded 11-plus verbal reasoning questions reared their heads with the schools' return announcement. I have two primary-aged children - in P1 and P3 - so there was pounding of my kitchen table as Arlene Foster confirmed their return - while other year groups have to wait.

But then mine are again sent home to allow for kids in a different school altogether to get back to their classroom.
