At DS's primary school they used to send a letter to you if your DC banged their head during the day.

His Reception teacher told me that she had had to do more head letters for DS than any other child she had ever taught!

He has at last learned to be a bit more careful.

OOOh my 4 yo ds1 also had his 1.5 hours intro session today!

No first aid but when he saw me waiting in the entrance hall he burst into tears and didn't stop crying till we got home.

Just a bit traumatised I think, he is used to higher staff to pupil ratios at day nursery!

He was the tallest in the group and the only one blubbering

I am struggling a bit to get ds1 to accept school as he is really bad with any kind of change. He's been going to nursery 3 days a week since he was 12 months old.

Its taken us weeks and weeks of talking about today to him, to get him to a point where the word 'school' doesn't send him into meltdown crying that he doesn't want to go.

So when he got there and things weren't the same as nursery he got all upset by the sound of things.

He is now in meltdown at the mention of having another one of these sessions a week fri....

When DD1 started school the only thing she would tell me about was who had injured themselves that day and been taken to the office for treatment! It was a bit un-nerving.
