J, in her first week of proper school, has certainly shone. Within days, she was given the honour of taking one of the two class teddies home for good behaviour, and at the Friday assembly the head teacher handed her the Special Effort badge.
There was also an announcement in her communication book that she has been chosen for the school Swimming Squad. That’s wasting no time! She was a bit dubious about this honour until I assured her that I would be watching her training sessions, as I have done for her elder sister.
She is certainly not unfamiliar with lots of water.
