My 5 yr old started school in September and has been doing very well the last few weeks or so she has been worrying about needing to go for a wee she hates going in assembly as she panics she is going to need the toilet also school trips she worries about it iv told her she just has to ask if she needs to go I dont know what has bought this on but I dont really know how to deal with it please help
Could you perhaps highlight this with her teacher? Teacher may be able to remind the whole class that they can put their hand up and be allowed to go or remind them before assembly etc. It sounds like she is nervous about school, as are all little ones my dd is, and this is where she is showing her nerves. There is a lot to concentrate on at school, the rules can seem overwhelming. Has she heard someone being told off for going to the toilet(perhaps if it was the 10th time in class for example) Best thing is what you are doing and keep reassuring her that it is ok to ask.
