    He was in a bad mood when I picked him up that afternoon too. Better mood today but I just got back home after getting a call to say he knocked his head and had a bleeding nose. He was okay but the school required he get checked out so I took him up to the health service quickly and just dropped him back. Seems okay today otherwise.

    Interested in how long your kinders/preps are having a buddy for. My son only had a week and I'm not sure it was long enough. The last two days he's come home with a really dirty shirt. He said he fell over yesterday but couldn't explain why he was so dirty today. He also got in trouble today for doing something ( not sure quite what, speech disorder makes explanations difficult) that an older boy told him to do. I'm going to try a speak to his teacher in the morning, if not I will email her.

    Rural school here, no buddy! But then there's only 26 students in the entire school so I guess it's not really necessary.

    DS had a buddy all throughout Kindy and has a new one this year in year 1, they come down every Thursday afternoon for half an hour and read/play/talk with them in their classroom or sometimes they go outside and play

    We're only a little school too. 19 students I think this year, but my son got a buddy haha. It's just a 1st grader in his class that's set to look after him. For an indefinite amount of time I suppose. It's the principals son, and also my 2nd graders best friend. So it works well for us.

    Our school doesn't do buddies until yr 1. The kindy and prep kids have a separate play area. Even in the main school the yr1-3 play in different areas to the yr4-6.

    I don't think our school does buddies until Prep, as the kinder area is quite separate from the rest of the school.

    Poor DD had a rough day yesterday. Some of her anxieties started to surface - she started crying when she saw strawberries in her lunchbox as they "surprised her". She wouldn't take her jumper off despite being hot. Then she had a massive fall off the swings, her poor little cheek is awfully grazed her teacher texted me throughout the day which I was really pleased about, but traumatised at the same time! Not what you want for their first week. I hadn't mentioned DD's anxieties to her, I didn't know if they were going to be an issue or not as she was just so excited to be there, and breezed through the first day. We saw a child psychologist earlier in the week to rule out ASD - she was leaning towards no, as DD is so social and in touch with her emotions...but, it is a spectrum so the possibility is there. For now she's treating generalised anxiety so I'll pass on what we're doing at home to her teacher & hopefully we'll all figure it out together!

    DD was in good spirits last night, able to talk about the fall and how the teachers helped her, so that's a good sign!

    Mystery solved. It was berries being thrown and he was with another kinder child not an older one. And they have been rolling around in a patch of dirt. Which explains the shirt. Spoke to one of the teachers aides that works with him and she was on duty and knew exactly what happened. So it's all ok. It's crazy how your mind invents things when you only know half the story. She said he's playing with child from the other kinder class which is fine. Now I can sleep tonight.

    Just thought I'd bump this thread to check in with how everyone's little people are settling into school life?

    DS has adapted to school life far better than we ever imagined. We are truly amazed. His teacher adores him and says he is doing everything he is told to. He is just thriving on the structure and routine of school and he can't get enough of it!

    Next week is the school disco, which should be adorable

    Aww so glad school is going great for DS @Mod-Degrassi. Isn't it amazing how fast they adjust and learn in such little time? I bet DS loves getting his little groove on at the disco next week!
    DD4 has been catching every virus possible and missed a few days of school but she's still thriving. They brought home readers last week, it's so amazing to hear her read. She's caught onto it so fast, love all the Phonics they teach first that help with this though.
