So it begins! The transition to big girls special school started today.
We told her of the plan Wednesday, visited Thursday and today she spent her first 2hours there.
She was understandably very nervous but surprisingly very excited as well. She came out after her 2hrs of forest school (today’s 2hr session fell during forest school time) feeling very happy. I was worried, she doesn’t like getting mucky or being cold usually but seems to have absolutely loved it. She made a lovely Christmas tree out of twigs and pine cones and feels very proud of herself.
Of the 3 other year 9 children in her class, she declares that the 2 girls have already become her best friends. In fact, I’ve heard her say to herself ‘I can’t believe I have 2 best friends already’ several times.
It’s early days, but for now, she’s looking forward to seeing her new friends and teachers again next Tuesday for the next 3hr session!
