Just had Daniel's introductory afternoon at preschool today. I stayed with him the whole time today, though he'll be attending on his own (3 afternoons a week) when the new term starts in September. It's uncanny how Joyce Grenfell things remain, although I suppose it shows that children don't change: genuine sample dialogue from this afternoon
"Now remember this week we're learning about the number seven. Yes Rakesh?" "There are a hundred countries in the world." "That's very interesting, Rakesh, but we're talking about the number seven right now, but thank-you for sharing that with us"
