Star of the Week

Last Friday Ethan came home with a very special award in his bag. He was awarded Star of the Week for ‘Being a good friend’.


This is his second star of the week award, his first was given to him on his first week of school. I love these awards and the fact that this one is for friendship is amazing.

I have been getting notes in Ethan’s book saying that Ethan has been starting to interact well with his classmates. We have also been seeing hints of the rough and tumble games they have been playing, as he is playing like this with Little E now.

I also know he has become quite close to one of the other boys in his class and I never thought friendship would be on Ethan’s radar.

I know we are miles away from play dates or anything like that but I’m loving the small steps Ethan is making.

    That’s brilliant, well done to him! You must be so proud. Maybe those playdates will happen in the future. x

    How lovely! Well done Ethan! I suspect that kids are not so bogged down in adult ideas of what social interactions and connections should look like, and are therefore more able to adapt and form relationships even if the friendship structure is not quite what we would see as conventional. #SSAmazingAchievements

      I think you are right. I think Ethan is happy with the friendships he has at school and he enjoys being there which is the most important thing x

    Well done Ethan 🙂 and what a lovely award to get. I wouldn’t worry about play dates to be honest, Sir has only had a couple in 11 years. We took him and his friend bowling for his birthday, he enjoyed that more I think because it was structured. Have a lovely Christmas all of you x
