1st day back to school and DS's brand new and clearly named school jumper has gone missing from his peg . He insists he put it there and he did not loose it!
AIBU to expect Yr3 kids to read the name on school uniform/coats etc so they take the right one home? In the last few years, I have lost count of how much stuff has gone astray - jumpers, coats, trousers!! At what blardy age does it stop!!
But cloakrooms are so busy and there is never enough room in them for all the clothes and all the children.
I am afraid children, of any age IME, never think to read the labels - they pick up the one they think is their own and head out without a moment's glance. I don't think it ever stops really. Have known it with almost all classes in secondary I have taught at too.
We have to just hope that the error is noticed once they get home and the parents bring them in.
It is very very frustrating I know. Luckily we have always managed to find any missing items within a short period of time.
