The one where I'm super proud!


Since we have moved house and the kids have obviously moved schools, too! They are all doing really well.
Anyway, the kids have only been at there new school since just after Easter. It took a while for Ellie to settle in as she had the same teacher (in her old school) for almost two years and the same group of friends since nursery. You can imagine how hard it must have been for her to settle into her new school! It took her a while to get use to her new school routine and make new friends and everything else that comes with starting a new school but she got there in the end! The boys seemed to adapt and settle in really fast and very well indeed.

They're all doing really well at school, we're waiting for Harry's SAT results. Hes glad they're over with. Ellie's doing super in English and maths, her times tables are coming along nicely. The boys are both doing wonderfully in Maths and English too. The boys hand writing has really improved this term, I think writing with fountain pen has helped them with that. Aww, I remember when I was at school, I use to love writing in fountain pen. =)

I can not believe how well Ellie's reading has come along since April, she has done AMAZING with her reading and it in fact, quite the little book worm (She takes after me, hehe). She's now reading 'hard' books (as she calls them) and she reads them so, so well! She's also been reading some children's books from the kindle which she really enjoys. I love listening to her read, there's something therapeutic about listening to children read, don't you think?

The boys are of course doing well! They love to read, too! Harrys been on about wanting to read 'The Hunger Games' but I still think he's a little young (not quite twelve!) for that. He's currently reading a goosebumps book! Who remember's those?! They were one of my favourite series to read and there are soooo many of them.

Charlie's busy reading some monster story or another, he does like his monster books! He's quite a fast reader, once he gets into a book he enjoys, he seems to really enjoy it.

Overall, the kids are doing wonderfully. We're going to keep reading and practising times tables at home. The kids are super excited for the six weeks holiday which is (very) fast approaching. I am also looking forward to the break from the school routine and enjoying the summer with the little's. Harry is excited about starting high school in September. I still can't quite fathom the fact that my eldest is going to be going to high school! How fast they grow and quick time goes.

  1. You're right, 12 is probably too young for the Hunger Games. The books are darker than the films. Maybe in a year! Glad your children are enjoying school and looking forward to the holidays. #mmwbh

  2. Hi I agree with Mrs Tubbs that 12 is too young the books are brilliant but reading between the lines a little bit dark for one as young as 12. My kids are big readers too and I love it that we can sit and discuss books together and which character is our fave etc. My boys both have little clamp lamps attached to their bunk beds (they're 7 and 8) and have a clock in their room they can watch tv after a bath until 7.30pm then its off to bed to read for 30 minutes before lights out. They love feeling grown up reading on their own and being independent telling the time and turning their lights out. Hope your kids enjoy the summer #mblogchat

  3. Great that your kids are so switched onto reading. I agree that there is something hugely therapeutic about listen to children read. I love to hear my oldest reading to the youngest now!

  4. We're waiting for SATs results too!! My 11 year old has read The Hunger Games, we read them together at bedtimes and I was comfortable with us reading them together. Glad everyone is settling into their new schools well! Im super nervous about my eldest going to secondary school after the holidays!! #MagicMoments

  5. I can't wait for N to be able to read. It's great yours enjoy it so much. Sounds like they've settled well. #magicmoments

  6. Sounds like they're doing brilliantly. Must be a relief for you. New schools are scary for kids and parents.


  7. Brilliant. Why not try the Maze Runner books? My 8 year old has just finished reading them all and loved them.

  8. I must admit I am looking forward to the holidays and break from routine. Glad they have settled in well x

  9. Sounds like budding geniuses there! Good luck in the SATS I think they must be out soon. #MagicMoments

  10. I love it! My oldest is only 4, but he's already a little bookworm. Skipping story time is not an option in our house.

  11. Very well done to them! It sounds like they're making brilliant progress and adapting very well to their new school. Thanks very much for linking to Loud 'n' Proud.

  12. I'm so glad they have all settled in so well at school. Moving schools is such a big step at any age. I think your right about the Hunger Games. I read it a few years ago and I think it could be quite graphic for someone so young.
