As each year your child gets older they are faced with new challenges to enhance their learning.
Moving up a year can be a fresh start for your child with new teaching methods, new surroundings and maybe new classmates. However, it also comes with its concerns for you and your child.
From my experience children who are younger tend to deal with transition better than children who are older. Personally, I think this is due to younger children being more resilient and being able to take things more in their stride.
For a parent, however, it is a lot more of a big thing.
Let’s face it, you (and rightly so) worry about absolutely everything when it comes to your child starting a new year at school.
“What is the new teacher like?”
“Is my child going to get on ok in their new class?”
“Does my child need extra support with their work”
These are just a few of many questions that may be circling around your head. What I thought I would do to try and ease your minds a little is break this down into 3 main parts.
