My DS1 starts school in Sept.
He is a bright boy who finds it "extremely difficult to sit still" (Nurserys words).He talks constantly unless he is watching TV and can be quite a handfull. He is rather boystrous and both the pre school and nursery he has attended have commented on this. I have spoken to my HV about this and she says he doesnt have ADHD (pre school thought it was a possibility) and just to try to ignore bad behaviour (unless its really bad) and praise the good.
I used to feel sick every day when I went to pick him up from nursery and am now getting worried about how he will get on at school. He is 5 in November. Anyone else felt like this, and how did your children manage. Any advice please

There is a boy in DS class who talks constantly and is always fidgeting he is bright too

But in class although he still would do non stop talking if he had the chance, he does behave and is doing very well

They are both 10 years. And he has always been like this, so hopefully your DSs will do as well. GOOD LUCK

School will be used to this - I bet they've had worse children than your DS to cope with. If it does prove a problem, they will be better placed to advise you how to help him improve.

My ds is the same, he will be 5 in October. I have come to the conclusion together with his nursery that he is bored at the nursery and will be fine at school.

He is always fine when he is given a task such as helping the staff or giving direction to the other children but when left to do things he has been doing over and over for the past few years he starts acting silly and disruptive.

I think its just because they are that bit older and were maybe ready to go in January!

Yes, My ds was 5 last Sept, and started school then.
He was (and still can be) the same, a constant chatterbox, able to get really silly, exceptionally bright.

It is because they need more stimulation, and I think a more structured daily routine. I suspect that his reception teacher will get the message fairly soon, and keep him busy.

If you are worried, take the opportunity to see her about 2 weeks into the new term, and ask how she feels he's getting on.

One thing I've learnt is that it pays to show the teacher you're interested.
