My Facebook timeline has been filled with proud parents posting about their kids fantastic school reports and that's great, it's so lovely to be proud.
I'm really proud of Boo, not only has she changed school and had to make heaps of new friends, she's had to fit in even though she is a slow learner and has had a lot of catching up to do. She might not be the brightest in the class but she is the youngest. She no longer needs an Individual Education Plan and is keeping up with the rest of the class. She's gone from not being able to write or spell to producing some lovely stories. Her drawings are really good and she's always got a pen and paper in her hand. What has really surprised me is that she's really good at mathematics, I don't know where she gets that from! Her report praises her for coping with the change of school so well and being good at making new friends. She's also really well behaved and attentive in class. She tries really hard and it's obvious that she really wants to learn. So, even though she doesn't get the best scores in tests, she is a little trouper and I'm sure one day she will prove how clever she really is.
The Little Man's report reflects his personality. He talks to much, he doesn't listen, he does his own thing. He does play nicely with the other children and is not disruptive or naughty, so I'm not too worried about him. He can write his own name and recognise a lot of letters and numbers. He is bright despite being the youngest in the class (yes again, thanks to me only having babies in the summer holidays!) but he doesn't like being told what to do. (He gets that from his Dad!) I'm hoping he will be more settled when he starts reception in September.
So, no A+ in our house (yet) but I'm still a really proud Mummy!
