A has now been at Primary School for almost a month now and what have we learnt? Erm well nothing really.
A is one of those children that doesn’t really say a lot about what she’s been up to. All we normally get was ‘it was fun’, ‘we had lunch’ and we seemed to get more out of her friends than her.
In the last week she’s actually told us her teachers name (even though we knew this it was the first time she said it).
While we was out walking the other day she let slip a little secret that her teacher used a whiteboard and bingo the cogs started turning. I knew her chalkboard had a whiteboard on the other side so when we got home I got it out.
The plan was that A would be the teacher and we gathered up her soft toys to be the children and so the role play began. A described exactly what the teacher done each morning from taking the register and each day two children have to take it to the office. Then each child had to take it in turns to pick which room they wanted to go into from the ‘Red Room’, ‘Green Room’, ‘Blue Room’ and outside and she told us what happens in each room.
From playing this game for the morning it was a brilliant way for A to open up to us about her days at school.
