Tonight 3/4 of the children had parents’ evening.
- Parents’ evening for G, year 2 – I cried*
- Parents’ evening for E, year 4 – I cried**
- Parents’evening for L, year 9 – I laughed hysterically, but at least I didn’t cry***
*G has been chosen, with one of her friends, to represent their class in the school talent show. She is playing the piano whilst her friend does an interpretative dance.
**E has had the same lovely teacher for 3 of the past 4 years. The whole class and teacher have been through some pretty traumatic stuff in that time, that no one – and especially first school kids – should have to face. They’re all leaving first school in the summer, so it’s quite emotional.
***We sat down to talk to L’s English teacher who commented that he was such a hard working student!!!!!!!!
Super proud of all of my super stars – even the one who escaped parents’ evening today. Whilst I’m chuffed with their academic achievements – I’m more pleased at the fact the teachers all seem to like them, and the other skills of caring, inclusion, empathy that the staff have talked about. This parenting lark can be pretty stressful and unforgiving at times – but nights like tonight I am pleased we’re doing something right. Time for a celebratory pancake!
