Dubai's Desperate Housewife

Trials and traumas of a full-time mum in Dubai

On learning to read

with 2 comments

Since DS loved his Nursery class at school so much and was reluctant to let go of his wonderful teacher, I’ve been bigging up the Reception class since about May. 

Maybe tomorrow

Maybe tomorrow

‘You’ll learn to read and write in Reception!’ I’ve been telling him. ‘Then you’ll be able to read me stories. And write me notes. How exciting! You’ll have reading homework, just like DD!’

It worked – he made the transition seamlessly.

But it seems I’d set his expectations too high. On day one of the new school year he came home disappointed.

 ‘It was fun,’ he said. ‘But you were wrong about Reception, mummy. I still can’t read.’
