Miss S turns 5!
Let me love you a little more, before you're not little anymore.
Miss S you have just turned five years old! I literally have no idea where the time went and I cannot believe that you have already been at school for a year and have begun Year 1.
The last 12 months have been such a big change for you, and you have handled starting school brilliantly. You are the youngest in your year, but you took school completely in your stride and, save for the first week back to school after Christmas, you have never shown any reluctance about going to school.
You seem to love reading, and you were asking to do your homework for most of Reception year. You even got Star of the Week for being a good example to others.
You found it hard at the end of the school year when you realised that your class was going to be mixed up, and you aren't going to be with all of your friends in Year 1. Sade is going into the other class, and you are sad that she isn't going to be in your class everyday.
You've discovered You've Been Framed, which has you giggling your head off! You have a really great sense of humour and have been discovering joke books, which you find so funny. You love your princess and ballerina books and anything pink.
You are sucking your thumb again, having not sucked it (save for bedtime) for over 9 months. I think the end of the school year was pretty exhausting for you, and we have struggled to get you to give it up since!
You are generally sunny and cheerful and you are happy to help me by fetching things and getting yourself dressed. Although you do occasionally huff and puff about having to do "chores".
You've also just finished your first ballet show, which you did without even a backwards glance. You love being around people and have found the summer holidays hard because you were without all of your friends every day.
We've had an amazing year this year and I can't wait to spend the next one with you. I'm so proud of the person you are and the person you are becoming. I hope you keep that sunny disposition and your relaxed attitude to all that you do.
I love you. xx
