Thanks so much Mystery. thinking about it, she's a very articulate and sociable child. actually quite popular in most of her peer groups.
The school has suggested getting someone that will come into the school and observe her in a classroom based environment and also see her on a one to one basis.
She does, singing, ballet and musical production on saturdays and i have not had any complaints at all. She actually seems to thrive in these areas and has passed her primary and grade 1 ballet. She also plays tennis and plays very well; her tennis tutor has moved her into the 11/12 age group and she's very confident and happy with this challenge.
She is also one of the top swimmers in her class and enjoys swimming.
The problem seems to be academic. I just got her school report yesterday as the term ended yesterday she has been giving 1 for effort which is the top mark you can get but mostly levels 2a and b's for achievement which i believe is below where she should be achieving in year 3.
Its frustrating that she's a young one and i know that part of it is maturity but I cannot bury my head in the sand and I am happy to work with the school and educational pyschologist to see if there are any underlying issues.
Its kind of worrying.
