If the summer holidays (10)(be) shorter, this would not happen. If our proposal (11)(go) ahead, we will introduce a system based on five terms a year. This means children (12)(have) lots of breaks with plenty of opportunities (13)(relax) during the year. If we didn’t have these long summer holidays, we (14)(do) much more work in our schools, so we think it (15)(be) time for a change.’
