Back to school – Autumn/Winter term.

How quickly did that 6 weeks go? I remember the start of it, feeling all optimistic about all the brilliant things we was going to do, but ended up being rained in for the most of it, which I fully blame myself as I did joke at the start of summer that it would rain for most of it! Whoops!!

The children have spend a lot of their time playing in their bedroom with their toys, I guess that’s one of the blessings of having more than one around the same age is that they can happily play together, they do argue but, that’s to be expected.

So whats planned for them going back;

Well A is starting year 1, it honestly feels like yesterday that she walked into reception without a care in the world, excited to learn and see all her friends, I expect the same this year too, She loves school and it makes me so proud that she enjoys it so much, She has improved so much over that one year, I cannot wait to see what else shes got up her sleeve for this one, A is left handed, but can use both hands when she writes and draws, which we all find incredible, she is such a smart little girl and I am so proud of her!

K is entering into year 3, Key Stage 2, goodbye is the free school lunches and its time to start really learning, they had such a terrible year one with may teacher swaps that K was, as we felt, left behind a little, but during year 2 he gained about 15 months of progress in 6, I wish the school hadn’t swapped and changed the teachers so much as I truly feel that was behind his slight delay, but he finished year 2 meeting his expected targets and I’m pretty pleased, I am a bit anxious about how he will perform in year 3, according to him, his new teacher shouts haha!

I am just so proud of them, how far they’ve come, and I cannot believe that A will be 6 shortly, and next year K will be 8, I keep looking back at their newborn photos feeling sad, but… as much as I wish I could keep them that small.. they are growing up into amazing, smart and kind people.

Here’s to the next school year!

Until next time

    I’m so glad school is back! The last few weeks of summer drag so bad. My son has just gone into year 3 too. He’s too big! 😢

    You’re right, it absolutely flew by this year, felt more like 2 weeks not 6! x

    This is exciting! I’m planning to do some student teaching in England and while I’ll be in a secondary school, I do find the system of education intriguing
