DS1 has been cultivating a sore throat all week, but, sadly, tomorrow IS the day they go back / start for new. Wafting aside, momentarily, the intense irksomeness of starting on a FRIDAY (partic when an inset day is scheduled for a Friday in Nov or Dec ....) I do hope tomorrow is good - or at least OK! - for all tomorrow.
For newbies - it CAN take a time. My DS1 was lucky to settle immediately (socially at least...) into his class but his best friend from round here took maybe a year. The school is 100% inflexible about moving them. My DS1 had a "friendship group" featuring about 5 from his form and one other from another form who latched onto them. His parents tried, but Mr K just REFUSED to let the boy move. They have to sit it out and lump it but, eventually (if not quite quickly) it CAN take time. Not just at Tommy's, I rush to add, everywhere.
And this time tomorrow - hoorah, the weekend begins!
