Just a quick update – we’ve now had our second induction day at Katy’s first Big School, which she will start in September. Being a ‘summer-born’ (what a lovely phrase!) and now four years old as at 3rd June, she’ll be starting in the third week, as the children have a phased start to their first term, with the oldest going first. At last week’s talk the Headteacher said that we were entering into a partnership with the school that will last for seven years. “It sounds like a long time”, he said, “but it will fly by”.
Aargh – don’t tell me that! The last four years have flashed past too quickly as it is; I don’t want anybody rushing me through the next seven! I want to enjoy every single moment of them!
We’ll be keeping on the volunteer gardener role at her current pre-school when she leaves, and might take on one at the school as well, as they welcome volunteers.
We had a look at it last year; it had a good Ofsted report and it seems to be a really nice school with a pleasant atmosphere, and I do hope that she will be happy there.
