EEEK! Is it really only 5 weeks away?
We've recently returned from a long summer away, during which I decided to let DS2 have a total break from VR.....It seemed like a sensible decision at the time, but now I'm conscious that I need to gear him up speed-wise again. So, from tomorrow, he's in for a shock
As for what to do on the day, I would definitely recommend you dump and run. (Or more likely dump, run and then fret, fret, fret whilst they're in there!) Yes, all the schools will be busy and parking will be tricky, so do allow plenty of time. I think the different schools have differing rules re bringing stationery and snacks/drinks or not; but you will get all the relevant information beforehand when they send you a security number which (from memory) you're supposed to pin to your child.
If anything, I think this is worse for the parents than it is for the children, so hope everyone is bearing up.
