Hi there, Im new here (just posted on intro board), and basically just wondered what your experiences of your littles ones going to school are?
My daughter Georgia is 5 and has been attending the same main stream school as her older sister since September. She has been doing really well and has made lots of friends....however this evening her sister, Abigail, told us that sometimes the others dont play with Georgia and she plays on her own. I am heartbroken at the idea of this!!
I know that she often DOES play with the other girls in her class but I hate to think of her on her own at all. Abigail said she goes over to her if she sees her on her own but then I feel bad that she is having to leave her fun and games.
Any advice or words of encourgaement would be gratefully received. Its not very often I have a wobble but at the mo Im pregnant with buba number 3 and am pretty wobbley anyway so this has really affected me
Oh Michelle, I can understand you feeeling a bit wobbly about Georgia playing on her own at playtime. I know when I worked as a teacher assistant ( for 10 yrs before Rachel came along) part of our role when supervising playtimes was to keep an eye out for those children who might need who might need a bit of support at that time.We use to just start up a little game ourselves , balls, skipping etc & before you know it there's another child there playing. I think its worth mentioning to Georgia's classteacher or TA so they are aware. Congratulations on no 3 x Susan
This is one of my fears when Caleb goes to school, I would mention it to the school/clas teacher too. I'm sure some 5 year olds play happily by themselves though, I know I can remember doing so. Hope it gets sorted - and congrats on number 3!
Hi Michelle, Brodie is the same age as Georgia and has just started at our local school. I must admit i had had the same kind of worries as you but i think as long as she's made friends and is not on her own all the time then i'm sure she's doing fine - i don't know what you find but i think that sometimes a lot of the children try to mother Brodie so perhaps its nice just to have sometime on his own to do his own thing? Also at Brodie's school they have a few children from the older years who are playground monitors who's job it is to start games with the younger children to make sure no-ones on their own too long. Sometimes i wish i was a fly on the wall though just so i could see for myself that everythings ok Congratulations on number 3 by the way! Whens he/she due? xx
