DS began Year 2 this year but has been assigned a class for year 2/1.
Just doing a bit of reading up on it over the net but a lot of info is out of date.
What's your experience of it?
I'm sure the parents of the Yr 1 students aren't worried, they're kids are smart enough to be bumped up but I'm a bit worried that my son isn't up to scratch.
We called the school and are just waiting for them to return our call but generally, how do these things work?
Is it the lower achievers of Yr 2 bumped in together with the higher yr 1 achievers?
Or is it the independent kids from Yr 2, the ones who can work on their own (DS) who the Yr 1s are put in with?
There is also an issue of job sharing for this class.
If he IS in the lower achieving end of yr 2 then this is not going to help him at all.
He suffered when his Kindy teacher was absent a lot in his first yr but he really pulled his socks up last yr and has come a long, long way.
How would you feel if this was your child's yr 2 plan?
What I'm reading is contradictory and maybe that's it, maybe in each school it's different.
We just need to know what it means for him.
Can anyone shed some light.
Totally in the dark on this.
