I love being able to drag out this image for each parents evening! Although I guess the report would have to be pretty rubbish for me NOT to feel proud of my boys.
I was a bit worried about Jack's parents evening meeting on account of his behaviour before Christmas, but that thankfully seems to be all behind him now and his behaviour is back on track. He still has his giddy and silly, giggly moments (I think he always will do) but over all his behaviour is ok.
As always his school work is brilliant. That's something I don't worry about too much. I know his work is good - so much better than mine ever was. His teacher (a supply teacher who has been with them for the last few months and seems very good) told me how he is still in the top group for his literacy and numeracy etc, how his reading is exceptional, and how his work is general is fantastic.
So, thrilled as I was about Jack, imagine how please I am that Tom is also doing brilliantly. He is also in the top group of his class for literacy and numeracy. He takes phonics in Jack's class (2 yrs above, just like Jack does). Tom's reading is taking off too and he seems to have got his brother's love of books. I asked how he was getting on with the other kids because he hasn't always had as much confidence as Jack and she told me that he has his group of friends that he gets on brilliantly with - if he does rule over them some what.
His teacher also told me how Tom and one of his friends (an equally bright little lad) have a good understanding of sarcasm meaning that she and the other ladies in the class were having to watch what they said a lot more closely!
School seems to have been the best thing to happen to Tom. He is stepping out of Jack's shadow and doing brilliantly on his own, making friends on his own, and finding the confidence (all be is slowly) to do things without his big brother there to fall back on.
