Right, it is inset day tomorrow, I will brace myself and go and address the problem on Monday. Kids can be a bit black and white about things, it may be she said it on one occasion, with a particular booklet, and that has stuck in his mind. She always enlarges things for him if the text is really diddy, so she should be aware that he particularly needs to highlight everything to keep/ find his place.
We did a comp yesterday evening (bribery via a toblerone) and I was pleased to see him scrawling and highlighting to his hearts content, and he did really well too, although he still ran out of time but no where near as badly as the weekend paper.
Thank you all for your support.
