Hi, my daughter is in year 2. She's only been at the school for about a term, but has made loads of friends.
She is friends with all the girls, and two of the boys. She wants to have the whole class at her party, but that will cost a fortune and make it really chaotic.
Is it o.k to invite all the girls, then just 2 of the boys? Or will other boys see the invites and be disapointed they're not invited?
Not sure what to do. Also, if you could recommend party ideas for potentially 30 children, that would be great. smile

I think if it is less than half the class it's ok.

Hmm, well there's 17 girls, then the two boys, so it wouldn't be. Maybe, we should invite the whole class then.

I'll probubly do the same. I didn't want to do the catering for that many, but it'll be far too expensive not too.
