This weeks post is all about the school week and the transition from one class year to another. The school choose to use early transition so that the kids are already settled in their new classes before the summer holidays. I think this is a fantastic idea, it takes away the fear of the unknown and leaves the summer open free of worry.
Daisy was heartbroken last Friday, she spent most of the evening sobbing about not being with her lovely teacher any more. After lots of hugs and maybe a bowl of ice cream or two she was felt much better. I was slightly worried how she would be come Monday morning but I needn’t have been.
By Monday morning she was really excited to show me which door she had to go in. She loves her new teacher and all her tears have dried up. The change for Daisy has gone really well I’m happy to report.
I think I mentioned a few weeks ago that Jake was having a wobble about going to nursery. Thankfully he was back to his normal self in plenty of time for the transition.
He started the week still in nursery and ends it happily settled into his new classroom. Of course come September he will be in school full-time but I feel confident that he will settle well. On Wednesday we got to enjoy a school dinner together, it was good to see the lunchtime process for myself.
All that’s left is for me to transition from having only the mornings to myself to having the whole day. I’m sure I won’t have a problem with that at all !
