Friday saw Little Man finish his first year at school in reception. It is hard to believe that he has completed his first year already, it only seems like yesterday I was taking him in for his first day. I remember his first day so clearly, I held it together until I got home and cried.
When he started school he couldn’t write his name, in fact he couldn’t really write at all, he couldn’t tell the time or add numbers together. He could count to 10 and then got all the numbers mixed up past 10 and his speech wasn’t the best. Little Man used to pronounce L as a Y so yellow would be yeyyow.
A full school year later…
Little Man can write his name and write sentences, he can add numbers together using numbers from 1-20, he can now count way past 100 and his speech is perfect. He can partially tell the time and the change in him is massive.
He has changed so much and has really come out of his shell. He will stick up for himself where-as before he wouldn’t. He has made so many new friends and in turn so have I. He has received awards for his attendance and awards for his behaviour.
Little Man had his report last week and we were all so proud of how amazing it was. After having a quick chat with his teacher, he said Little Man was an absolute star and was never any trouble at all.
I hope when he goes into year 1 he carries on the good work and carries on having the amazing reports. The speed at which he has learnt astounds me.
Well done Little Man carry on how you are and you will go very far… remember the sky’s the limit!
Here is a little picture of his first and last day.
