Letters To My Son - Starting Reception


On the 7th September 2016 you started your school life in Reception. For some reason I felt nervous, I don't know who starting school is worse for the child or the parent.

This is not the first big change you have experienced, in January I moved your from a private nursery in to a school nursery and I spent the night before you were due to start worried in case I was making the wrong decision because even though you had gained a place in the nursery it didn't automatically guarantee you a place in reception at that same school so what if I was moving you from somewhere you were settled in to this new place with lots of new faces and then I would have to move you again.

You soon settled in to your new school and loved each day playing with your friends and the change in you was amazing to see you were growing and learning new things each day. I knew then that I had made the right decision for you.

Back in June I found out that unfortunately you hadn't got a place in reception at your previous school and you would have to leave behind not only your friends but also your lovely childminder who you loved. I began to feel nervous again at the thought of having to move you in to a brand new school.

We got to have a couple of trips to your new school so that both of us could get to know the school and you liked your new school straight away and by the time the end of the summer holidays you were looking forward to starting your new school but again mummy was nervous.

The 7th of September arrived the day you were to start your new school life and you couldn't wait to get to school. Seeing you in your new uniform made me so proud of you my beautiful boy. I could sense you were slightly nervous about your first day but by the time we got to the school and were waiting for the classroom door to open the nerves were gone and you were keen to get into your new classroom. I didn't want to leave you that morning but you were completely fine and waved me off with a huge smile on your face.

I couldn't be prouder of you my beautiful boy you take the big changes in your stride nothing seems to phase you at all.

Love from mummy
