Back to School – Year Two

Here is the obligatory back to School post. I cant believe my little girl has started year two. It really doesn’t seem that long ago since she started reception. We have had a great summer holidays, there have been a few cheeky moments from E, some boredom which I think is good for a child – gives them the chance to use their imagination. There have been a few day trips and then a trip to see family in Derby. So we have been quite busy. I can frequently be heard saying that E has so many toys and yet she doesn’t play with anything.

Seeing as I missed the start of year photos here are the comparison photos taken on the first day of each year. This years photo unfortunately isn’t very clear. I also took a photo of E in her summer uniform with J E has changed and grown up a lot in a year, it amazes me how much she learnt in reception at school and is now learning so much more. Year one has meant a lot of changes and a lot of new things for the children to get used to. Not only do they have a new teacher but the classes have been mixed… View Post
