Well it's back to school and I'm thankful for Ds going to a local primary with only a handful taking the test. Ds has already said he won't mention it to anyone, to be honest I'm quite proud of him. We were at a family party yesterday and whenever he was asked about the exam he just said it was ok and was just going to wait for the results. On the other hand he was out with his grandad yesterday morning and bumped into a family friend who insisted on telling Ds how her son found it easy and answered every question!!!
Who says these things to a 10 yr old, if that is true then well done to the child and if all correct he deserves a place but please parent have a bit of restraint. We are all proud of are children but have some consideration.
I've packed up all 11 plus related material and feel abit sad, I've spent so much time with Ds and it was in some ways 'our thing' if that makes sense. I'm sure I'm going to be ditched for the playstation now.
Ds2 is looking at me nervously.... Mmmm he has yr2 sats next yr!!!!!
Also does anyone know if results can be emailed as well as posted, we will be on holiday when they are posted and by the time we get back that only leaves a couple of days to make school decisions.
Hope you're all surviving the 11 plus hangovers
