Any advice or experience would be great.
Our second daughter started reception in Term 2 this year. In SA, kids must at least do three terms of reception due to how intakes work.
It has been suggested to us that she do reception again next year, thus taking her reception terms totalling 7.
The main explanation from her teacher and principal is she is where she should be at after her three terms but not the 6 terms.
This is an R/1 class in a small rural school where we are lucky to have wonderful school spirit and interest in our children. We have currently had two meetings with her teacher and principal and are more than welcome to continue to do so.
What this situation has done is put our head in a spin. We have talked and talked and talked about it.
DD has no learning, social or emotional issues, is friendly, sporty and enjoys school. It has been explained to us that she is a perfectionist and needs to have things right the first time. Something she could be experiencing due to having an older sibling who obviously is at a higher academic level.
If you have any thoughts or experience we would love to hear from you.
