Your little one starting 'big' school naturally ignites a lot of emotions for everyone involved.
How did your little one get so grown-up already? It feels like only yesterday you were counting the rolls on your toddler's arm and now they're choosing the perfect lunchbox for when they eat their sandwiches in a school cafeteria. How will you cope with not seeing them all day? How will they cope? Why isn't there a manual which helps with the inevitable separation anxiety that will come when waving them off at the school gates?
That's why we asked 11 Primary School teachers for their top advice for parents with little ones starting school this Autumn. Oh and their top tips definitely didn't disappoint...
7) 'Help your child recognise their name! Nearly everything in your child’s new classroom will have their name, including their coat peg and their work tray. Most Reception children will also be required to do self-registration where they find their name to show they’re in class that day.' From Learning Made Fun
